PI EXCLUSIVE: 4-Star WR Porter Rooks Talks Commitment to NC State

Published

on

4-Star 2020 Wide Receiver Porter Rooks (6’2″/189) committed to NC State last night, and I had the chance to catch up with him and get his thoughts on his reasons why.

What was it about NC State that led you to commit so early in the process?

“NC State is home. Each visit felt like a home away from home. I can’t even describe the vibe up in Raleigh.

What do you think of the job Coach McDonald’s has done with Harmon, Meyers and the rest of the receivers?

“Coach McDonald’s (Wide Receiver’s Coach) resume speaks for itself. Kelvin Harmon has had great success. Jakobi Meyers developed into a NFL receiver from being a Quarterback. Emeka Emezie has had some early success.”

What is your impression of how NC State is doing on the recruiting trail? Did the success of the 2019 class influence your decision?

“Definitely. #Pack19 isn’t just a recruiting class, it’s a family. When I realized that, I knew that was the culture I wanted to be a part of.”

Are you going to be actively trying to get the best to come to Raleigh?

No doubt. We are building something special.

What have your thoughts been on experiencing a game in Carter-Finley Stadium?

“Nothing like it. Wolfpack Nation loves their football and I can’t wait to be apart of it!”

Could 3-Star DT Henry Bryant Flip From Louisville to NC State Today?

Published

on

The early national signing period begins today, and there’s a chance that 3-Star Defensive Tackle Henry Bryant (5’11″/275) flips his commitment from Louisville to NC State.

That is what Adam Lichtenstein of the South Florida Sun Sentinel predicts will happen.

Potential Flips

Henry Bryant III, Atlantic, DL

Bryant finished his final season at Atlantic with another dominant season. The three-star defensive lineman has been committed to Louisville since June after taking an official visit there in May. But the Atlantic star might be having a change of heart. He took an official visit to N.C. State last weekend, according to 247Sports. While I would not be surprised if Bryant sticks with Louisville when he announces his decision on Thursday, it appears he’ll join the Wolfpack. Prediction: N.C. State. (Sun-Sentinel)

Considering the fact that Bryant plays for Atlantic High School in Delray Beach Florida, this is a noteworthy voice to listen to.

Bryant committed to Louisville on June 13th, but took an Official Visit to NC State on December 13th.

4-Star OT Austin Blaske Decommits From NC State

Published

on

On the eve of National Signing Day, NC State received a punch to the gut when 4-Star Offensive Tackle Austin Blasko tweeted out that he was decommitting from the Wolfpack at 11pm.

From the looks of it, it would seem that Georgia possibly swept in at the last second, and Blaske could be signing with the Bulldogs tomorrow instead.

Blaske was the third highest rated commit in NC State’s recruiting class according to 247Sports, and 1 of only 4 4-Star commits along with Wide Receiver Porter Rooks, Defensive Tackle Davin Vann and Safety Nehki Meredith.

This is a huge blow to the 2020 NC State recruiting class, considering the fact that he repped the Pack about as hard as any other member.
