NC State 2019 running back commit Jamious Griffin had a record breaking night this past Friday night, rushing for 339 yards on 24 carries!

Griffin also added two more touchdowns to his already impressive 2018 haul.
“This season is going really well,” he said. “We thought some of these games would be tough, but we’re playing together as a team, so it’s making it a little easier right now.” (Link)
After this weekend, Griffin has claimed the following Rome High School records:
Career Rushing Yards
Career Rushing Touchdowns
Single Season Rushing Yards (3 games remaining)
Single Season Touchdowns (31)
Rushing Yards in a Single Game (339)
Touchdowns in a Game (5)
Rome High School has now won 35 straight football games, and is looking to win their 3rd straight Georgia State Championship.
Through 7 games, Griffin has 1,497 yards rushing (11.3 yards per carry) and 22 touchdowns (20 rushing & 2 receiving), and he has 3 more regular season games remaining to add to these already gaudy numbers.
At this point, Griffin’s 3-star rating is laughable.
4-Star CB Jospeh Johnson Includes NC State in Top 4
4-Star 2020 Cornerback Joseph Johnson included NC State in his Top-4 last night alongside Penn State, Ohio State and Texas A&M.
Johnson has taken Official Visits to Texas A&M, NC State and Penn State over the past three weeks. As of now, he doesn’t have one scheduled for Ohio State.
On Thursday, Johnson announced he was moving his commitment date up from June 5th to the 2nd.
Even though the Wolfpack have 3 cornerbacks committed in 2020, in my opinion, there’s no way they don’t take Johnson if he commits.

3-Star LB Jayland Parker Includes NC State in his Top-3
If it wasn’t already clear, 3-Star 2020 Linebacker Jayland Parker (6’2″/214) announced his Top-3 schools last night, and NC State made the cut along with Colorado and Purdue.
Parker took an Official Visit to Purdue on the last weekend in May, took one to Colorado last weekend, and will be taking his last one to NC State next weekend (June 21).
He will be announcing his college choice on July 1st.
Parker included NC State in his Top-11 back on April 1st.
NC State offered Parker back on March 1st, while he was in for an unofficial visit.
Parker plays for Westside High School (Macon, Georgia) in the Peach State, where the Wolfpack are recruiting well in 2020 (4 commitments). He had 58 tackles, 4 tackles for loss, and 2 interceptions last year.
247Sports ranks him as the #48 overall player in the state of Georgia in 2020.
