Devin Carter Returning to NC State

Published

on

Another stud is bringing his talents back to the Pack. Wide receiver Devin Carter announced on Friday afternoon, he is returning.

 

 

Human Highlight Reel

If Carter can bring consistency to his game, WATCH OUT.

When he’s on, he can put up numbers like at Wake Forest (7 Rec, 132 Yds, 2 TDs) or against Clemson (5 Rec, 54 Yds, 2 TDs).

He’s also good for UNREAL catches.

Basketball needs a little success to get this kind of “we’re going to be bad-asses next season” mentality going there. Right now, at the end of the season all the basketball players think about is what is best for themselves. There seems to be little consideration for “what might my team do next season?” And that is okay and totally understandable, you have to look after yourself – but it would be nice if once in a while someone comes back to help the team take another step forward. And it’s not like Pack players turning pro are going to… Read more »

I should add, I’m talking about MALE basketball players. Wes Moore has got the Lady Pack thinking that way already.

Great to hear. With EE departing, time for guys like Carter to take over. Very excited about next year.

I know that I’ll be ridiculed for saying this…but if Devin Carter wants to be EE 2.0, he can. His problem has always been consistency. We know he can make highlight reel catches. We know that every third game he goes off. If he can make himself part of the offense EVERY game, he’ll better EE’s numbers from last year, without question…

ON3: NC State’s Secondary Ranks 6th in the Nation

Published

on

ON3 released their rankings of the Top-12 Secondaries in the nation, and NC State’s ranked 6th.

 

1. Alabama
2. Texas A&M
3. Georgia
4. Penn State
5. Iowa
6. NC State
7. Ohio State
8. Clemson
9. Utah
10. Minnesota
11. Oregon
12. Boise State.

6. NC State

The standout: S Tanner Ingle
The buzz: All five starters return from a unit that held opposing quarterbacks to a 52.5 percent completion rate last season (second nationally). Ingle isn’t that big (5 feet 10, 186 pounds), but he hits a ton. There is a lot of experience (four of the five starters are upperclassmen) and ample depth, too. (ON3)

The Secondary hasn’t been a strength for NC State through the years, but the tide has shifted in Raleigh. The Wolfpack returns all of their starters from last season.

In 2021, NC State ranked 3rd in the ACC in passing yards given up per game, 1st in completion percentage defense, 2nd in interceptions, and 3rd in passing touchdowns given up.

ON3: NC State’s Linebackers Rank 2nd in the Nation

Published

on

ON3 released their rankings of the Top-10 Linebacker corps in the nation, and NC State’s ranked 2nd behind Alabama.

  1. Alabama
  2. NC State
  3. Oregon
  4. Iowa
  5. Georgia
  6. Clemson
  7. Notre Dame
  8. Kentucky
  9. Nebraska
  10. Michigan.

Here’s what they had to say about the Wolfpack Linebackers:

2. NC State

The standout: Drake Thomas
The buzz: Thomas was a first-team All-ACC selection last season, when he stuffed the stat sheet with 99 tackles, six sacks, 13.5 tackles for loss, nine quarterback hurries and three interceptions (including a pick-six). Truthfully, the other two starters – Isaiah Moore and Payton Wilson – also could’ve been listed as the standout. Wilson played just two games last season (he had five tackles for loss) before being injured and missing the rest of the year. Moore played in seven games before also being lost for the season; he still was an honorable mention all-league pick. This is a physical, athletic and instinctual trio. And because of the injuries last season, some younger guys got key snaps and depth is good this season. (ON3)

ESPN’s David Hale dropped some knowledge yesterday, in the statistical fashion in which he always does, showing simply how elite Drake Thomas, Isaiah Moore and Payton Wilson are.
