The hits keep on coming from the Wolfpack’s loss to Miss State…
NC State football announced that both Payton Wilson and transfer Cyrus Fagan will both be undergoing season-ending surgery.

Wilson was the keystone of this LB core, and frankly, defense as a whole. After leading the conference in tackles last season, Wilson was a preseason All-ACC pick. It didn’t look good after being helped off the field Saturday night, as he was seen on the sidelines in an air cast. Wilson is a redshirt sophomore and will be back next season.
Fagan impressed mightily in his short time with the Pack. His seven tackle, one interception performance against USF put him as one of our higher ranked players of the game. The transfer from Florida State has two years of eligibility remaining.
