4-Star 2020 Wide Receiver Nate McCollum committed to NC State back on March 31st, but that isn’t stopping Georgia Tech from trying to flip him. He has a scholarship to play both football and baseball in Raleigh, but Georgia Tech has offered him the same opportunity closer to home.
McCollum plays for Dutchtown in Hampton, Georgia.
The Yellow Jackets are laying it on thick as of late. After visiting NC State for their season opener, McCollum was in Atlanta last Saturday watching Georgia Tech beat USF 14-10.
ICYMI, a new target in the slot has emerged for #GaTech & it sounds like the coaches have turned things up.

McCollum is showing love to both NC State and Georgia Tech. The Wolfpack coaching staff will have to work to keep McCollum solid on his commitment.
Georgia Tech flipped All-American Running Back Jamious Griffin from NC State last year.

NC State offered McDowell back on March 4th.
McDowell reportedly bench presses over 330, and squats 600 pounds, runs a 4.4 40-yard dash, and has a 40+ inch vertical leap. He plays on both sides of the ball, and even earned 1st Team All-State honors last year as a Defensive Back, but he is being recruited to play running back in Raleigh.
