PI EXCLUSIVE: NC State is Currently #1 for 3-Star Safety Ja’Torian Mack

Published

on

3-Star Safety Ja’Torian Mack (6’0″/180) was in attendance for NC State’s Spring Game last Saturday. I caught up with him to get his take. Preview…the Wolfpack are #1 on his list as things currently stand.

What were your overall thoughts of the game? What excited you about the way this team played?

I felt like the energy was there from the beginning of warmups through the very end of the game & the way the just got along after someone made a play no matter offense or defense just boosted my liking.

Who stood out you from the game?

KC (Kevin Concepcion) even though he is on the opposite side of the ball. I just like how physical and hard he plays.

What were your interactions with the Coaches like?

Interactions with the coaches were great. I had the pleasure of speaking with some of the coaching staff, especially Coach DeForest, talking over the defense and how they run things on the back end. I also had the pleasure to see my former teammate Josh Alexander (Joshua Alexander Felton/Freshman DE). Coach Wiles and I talked about all the things he knows about Edgewater and relationships he’s had down in Florida.

Where does NC State currently in your recruitment?

As of right now, they’re definitely #1.

_______

Mack will be taking an Official Visit to NC State on June 19-21.

He plays for Edgewater in Orlando, Florida. NC State offered Mack on back on February 8th, and he also holds offers from Georgia Tech, Iowa St., Louisville, West Virginia and others.

This past season, Mack had 68 tackles, 3 tackles for loss, 1 interception, 4 forced fumbles, and 3 fumble recoveries.
