Why You’re Going to Love NC State Football Commit MJ Morris



After a tremendous season, Doeren and staff are following it up by going all-in on recruits that fit the “State mold”. Great players that have the chance for outstanding ceilings. There’s one in particular, that we at PI can’t stop thinking about for the future; QB commit, MJ Morris.

Raw Talent

Morris has raw skills that should develop nicely by the time he needs to step into a starting role. His sophomore season saw a jump in decision making and accuracy, completing 61% of passes with a 3-1 TD to INT ratio, while also gaining nearly 7 yards per carry. By his senior year; 3,089 passing yards, 40 total touchdowns, and 9 interceptions. Yowza.

Morris has a big arm to go deep, while also having the ability to roll out and go short. The biggest eye opener is his pocket awareness. Consistently stepping up the pocket and having the patience and thought process to run or throw. State is getting an overall, beyond athletic QB. Vonwolf would like to remind you…lots of folks in the Southeast are going to be kicking themselves that they didn’t get him.

As if things couldn’t get better, Morris won the Rivals QB Challenge down in Georgia. Morris beat out a solid southeast grouping that included Clemson commit, Cade Klubnik.


Just Listen to the Man Talk About State

So we have this ultra talented young man committing to State. You see the reasons that many a coaches took interest in him and the excitement he could bring to Raleigh. Now listen to him praise State and his overall work ethic (all from

“Every day since I committed to NC State, I wake up with a smile on my face,” Morris said. “Just being able to have the chance to play under head coach Dave Doeren and offensive coordinator Tim Beck brings a smile to my face every day.”

“Coach Beck was teaching me and I was learning their offense. He was helping me with some stuff in my game. Then just visiting around the campus, it was a great time. It had a great deal, great vibe, my mom and I loved it.

“I want them to know that I’m the hardest-working quarterback in my class.”

“I know they are going to develop me and help me reach my dreams of getting to the NFL.”

I mean…Morris couldn’t have answered those questions any better. Furthermore, the absolute, unquestionable love he has for Doeren and Beck is telling. State is creating a program with class guys, that put in the work and perform on Saturdays.

Welcome to the Pack, MJ.

Passionate State fan that just wants to anything...

4-Star FSU DL Keith Sampson Set to Take Official Visit to NC State on September 10th



On September 10th, 4-Star 2023 Florida State Verbal Commit Defensive Tackle Keith Sampson (6’3″/285) will be taking an Official Visit to NC State. Sampson committed to play for the Seminoles back on March 5th of this year. Earlier this summer, as a FSU commit, Sampson also took an Official Visit to UNC in June. The only other Official Visit he has on the books is one to Florida State on October 28th.

The New Bern High School standout’s offer sheet is quite impressive: FSU, NC State, UNC, Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, Miami, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, Tennessee, Texas A&M and others.

One of the things that might be keeping NC State in contention with the Seminole commit is his friendship with Wolfpack commit Javonte Vereen, who is a 4-star Tight End out of Havelock.

247Sports ranks Sampson as the #145 overall player in the 2023 recruiting class, and the #4 player in the state of North Carolina.

FSU offered Sampson on May 17th last year, and NC State followed up with one of their own a day later.

NC State Offers 2 Twin 4-Star UCF LB Commits



In a matter of 3 days, NC State has offered scholarships to 4 linebackers who are already committed to other schools. First, it was Texas Tech commit Miquel Dingle Jr. on Saturday. Next, it was Vanderbilt commit Kelvon McBride yesterday afternoon. Then, last night the Wolfpack offered the Harris brothers, who are twins that both play linebacker at Lake Brantley High School in Altamonte Springs, Florida.

Andrew and Michael are both 4-star prospects that committed to UCF on July 6th this summer. Both players rank in the Top-25o overall nationally, with 247Sports ranking Andrew 135th and Michael 168th.

If NC State could pull off the feat and flip the Harris brothers, leaving their home state, they will have done what the following teams on their offer sheets couldn’t: Texas A&M, Tennessee, Auburn, Michigan St., Michigan, Mississippi St., Maryland, Penn St., Pitt and others.

The Harris brothers have only taken 2 of their official visits thus far, to Maryland and Michigan State.
