PI EXCLUSIVE: RB Nick Treco Breaks Down His Commitment to NC State

Published

on

Yesterday 2-Star 2019 Running Back Nick Treco committed to NC State as a preferred walk-on.

I caught up with him shortly afterwards, and he broke down it all came about, his reasons why

On NC State’s interest in him…

Playing at Mallard Creek Coach, (Eddie) Faulkner (Tight Ends Coach) reached out and invited me to the FSU game. When I met him in person, he almost immediately offered me a chance as a Preferred Walk-On. He told me the 2019 class was very good, but still wanted me to come and play running back. He told me I reminded him of (Brady) Bodine and that I would have a chance to compete, play special teams and to potentially earn a scholarship over time.

On visiting NC State

I went back for a individual meeting and really liked everything I saw and spent time with Coach Kitchings (Running Backs) and he told me he liked my game and that he really wanted me in the RB room.

On making the decision to commit…

I had other scholarship opportunities and other Preferred Walk-On opportunities, but I want to play with and against the best in college football. I spoke with Coach Faulkner last week and he said he wanted me to commit and be a part of this 2019 class.

On the type of player he is…
Like Christian McCaffrey, Julian Edelman and Alvin Karmara, I am a multi-dimensional running back. I can run between the tackles, catch the ball out of the backfield or play in the slot.

Some schools recruited me as a slot receiver and some as a running back. Some even asked me if I wanted to play safety, since I was a two-way starter in High School.

Wide Receiver Chris Scott (6’0″/160) out of Dacula High School (Dacula, GA) took an Official Visit to NC State this weekend.

NC State offered Scott back on November 9th, which was his 1st Power 5 offer.

He has since then picked up an offer from Vanderbilt.

Back in July, Scott verbally committed to Eastern Kentucky, and I can’t find anywhere where he decommitted, but maybe I’m just not finding it.

#6 Kicker Ian Williams Commits to NC State

Published

on

Place Kicker Ian Williams of Weddington High School (Matthews, NC) has verbally committed to NC State, after an Official Visit to Raleigh this weekend.

Kohls Kicking ranks Williams as the #6 kicker nationally in the 2020 recruiting class.

Williams is new to Kohl’s. He attended a training camp in the summer of 2019 and showed very well at that event. He followed it up with a dominant performance in July of 2019 at the National Scholarship Camp. Williams was in contention for the Under All-America Game because his field goals and kickoffs are special. His clean leg swing and repeatable motion are very impressive. He also has the ability to hit some very big punts. Williams is someone who should be a D1 scholarship player this fall! (Kohls)
247Sports ranks him as the #12 kicker in the nation.
Williams also held offers from Army, Wofford, UNC-Charlotte and Western Carolina. With Punter Mackenzie Morgan deciding to transfer, a scholarship was extended to Williams.
With Williams’ commitment, NC State will have 4 Special Teams players on scholarship at the start of the 2020 football season.
Junior Place Kicker Chris Dunn
Redshirt Junior Punter Trenton Gill
Sophomore Long Snapper Joe Shimko
Freshman Place Kicker Ian Williams
Williams is the 18th member of NC State’s 2020 recruiting class.
