PI EXCLUSIVE: 2026 WR Gordon Sellars Breaks Down NC State Junior Day Experience

Published

on

Last Saturday, 2026 Wide Receiver Gordon Sellars (6’3″/175) attended NC State’s Junior Day. I caught up with him to get his take on the experience.

Can you describe what the format of the day was? What did you do?

The day was amazing as soon. As I walked in the door, I felt the good vibe and I could tell that it was about to be a great day.

What was your favorite part of the experience?

My favorite part was getting to see the coaching side of Coach Philips and how straight forward he is.

Were you able to have any conversations with the coaching staff? If so, how did that go? What’s their recruiting pitch to you? What’s your relationship like with them?

I met Coach Cottingham for the first time and we had a good conversation about my film and how much he liked me as a player. I got to see Coach Philips again and learn about how he wants a CATCH player.

Where does NC State currently stand in your recruitment? What schools are currently ranking the highest for you?

NC State is definitely a top school, knowing that that’s where my sister would like to attend, so they are definitely special to me. All the schools that are recruiting me are ranked the highest for me!
