The Details for the NC State Football Spring Game this Saturday



RALEIGH, N.C. – The 2019 Kay Yow Spring Football Game, scheduled for April 6 at 1 p.m. at Carter-Finley Stadium, will once again provide fun for everyone in the family this season, as well as a great chance to see the football squad for the first time this year.

Admission is free and the Stadium East, Stadium Southeast, Stadium West and IPF lots will open at 8 a.m. Fans are encouraged to enter through Gate C, Gate B and Gate F (Westchase).  Stadium gates 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, and 9 will open at 11:30 a.m. NC State’s regular Clear Bag Policy will be enforced and due to a concert at PNC Arena following the event, the parking lots will need to be cleared by 4 p.m.

This year’s contest will feature the offense in RED and the defense in WHITE with live tackling. The game clock will operate like a normal game in the first and second quarter, while the third and fourth quarters will have a continuous clock. Whatever end zone the player scores in will receive the points, as the offense will rotate end zones they are driving each possession.

Afterwards, players and coaches will be available on the field for autographs for 20 minutes.

Fans unable to attend can watch all the action on ACC Network Extra and WatchESPN. Former Wolfpack QB Mike Glennon, currently of the Oakland Raiders, will be joined by Andrew Sanders and Will Brinson in the booth to call the action. To watch, click HERE.

Which NC State Players Signed with NFL Teams as Undrafted Free Agents?



Chandler Zavala was the only player from NC State that was drafted this past weekend in the 2023 NFL Draft. So which Wolfpack players signed with NFL teams as undrafted free agents?

NC State has quite a few players playing in the NFL that went undrafted: Defensive Tackle T.Y. McGill, Running Back Zonovan Knight, and Wide Receiver Jakobi Meyers.

The Chargers organization must have liked what was going on in Raleigh, signing 3 Wolfpack players as undrafted free agents.

The Bolts signed Safety Tanner Ingle.

Also heading to Los Angeles is Defensive Back Tyler Baker-Williams.

Los Angeles might have found their kicker of the future in Christopher Dunn.

Linebacker Isaiah Moore has signed with the reigning Super Bowl Champs in Kansas City.

Moore is joining former Wolfpacker Joe Thuney in KC.

Wide Receiver Thayer Thomas has signed with the Minnesota Vikings.

Thomas is joining former Wolfpacker Garrett Bradbury in Minnesota.

Thayer’s brother, Linebacker Drake Thomas signed with the Las Vegas Raiders.

Thomas joins former Wolfpacker’s Jakobi Meyers (WR) and A.J. Cole (P).

Cornerback Derrek Pitts has signed with Tampa Bay.

Defensive Tackle Cory Durden has signed with the Detroit Lions.

Durden joins former Wolfpacker Alim McNeil, who also plays Defensive Tackle.

Finally, Punter Shane McDonough is a rookie mini-camp invitee.

Chandler Zavala was NC State’s Lone Draft Pick in 2023



Surprisingly, NC State only had one player taken in the 2023 NFL Draft. Unsurprisingly, Offensive Lineman Chandler Zavala was that singular player.

The Carolina Panthers drafted Zavala in the 4th round with the 114th overall pick.

This marks the second year in a row that the Panthers have selected an offensive linemen from NC State, drafting Ikem Ekwonu with the 6th overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Zavala and Ekwonu played beside one another in Raleigh on the left side, and there’s a chance that they will eventually do the same thing on Sunday’s for Carolina.

Zavala is coming off of a season where he earned 1st Team All-ACC honors, and didn’t give up a single sack.

NC State’s Demie Sumo-Karngbaye Enters Transfer Portal



NC State Running Back Demie Sumo-Karngbaye has officially entered the Transfer Portal. As a Redshirt Freshman this past season, he rushed for 305 yards (5.5 yards per carry) and 3 touchdowns. Sumo-Karngbaye also had 12 receptions for 148 yards and a touchdown.

Demie was electric to start the season, but battled injuries all season long. In conference play, he was limited, only rushing the ball 16 times for 53 yards (3.3 yards per carry) with 0 touchdowns.

There’s no denying that the Wolfpack Running Back room is crowded. From the beginning of the season, Sumo-Karngbaye shared carries with Jordan Houston, who is once again returning this season. After Sumo-Karngbaye continued to miss action due to injuries, True Freshman Michael Allen stepped in and proved to be more than ready for the spotlight, averaging 5.1 yards per carry (53 carries), with most of those carries coming against ACC opponents. Not to mention the fact that True Freshman Kendrick Raphael will look to make an instant impact this Fall.

With all of this being said, I don’t get this move. At the end of the day, every young man has to make the decision they think is best, but Sumo-Karngbaye had every reason to to expect significant playing time in 2023, as long as he could prove to stay healthy.
