NC State’s Terronne Prescod is a ESPN All-American



NC State Redshirt Senior Left Guard Terronne Prescod is on a roll like his buddy Garrett Bradbury.

He already has earned 1st Team All-American honors from ProFootballFocus, and 3rd Team honors from the AP.

Today he was named an ESPN All-American.

Here’s what ESPN had to say about Prescod:

OG: Terronne Prescod, NC State

There might not have been a more consistent offensive lineman in the FBS than NC State’s mammoth 6-foot-5, 334-pound guard. His overall grade of 85.7 is best among all FBS offensive linemen, according to PFF, and he gave up only six quarterback hurries in 342 pass-blocking plays. His 86.2 run-blocking grade is 4.1 points higher than any other player’s. NC State leads the ACC and is ranked No. 3 in the FBS in sacks allowed, with only nine surrendered in 12 games. (ESPN)
