I'm not sure I'd lump him in with JSam just yet but I think that's the type of utility player the staff hopes he can become.

I've seen him compared to Funchess when he was at Michigan a LOT. Odds are he'll redshirt and get in the S&C program and see how he develops. He either ends up a big WR or a play-making TE like JSam.

I hate comparing players to JSam, we're talking about comparing HS kids to a guy who is getting some preseason All-American picks. I appreciate versatile guys, but JSam just does so many things at such a high level. I've read that Robinson is truly more of an athlete than any one position, I've seen some suggestions that he could even fill out and play DE if we needed.

Hopefully he'll work out at TE since we're supposedly not taking any other TEs this class.

Nobody means he's gonna be the same player they mean his position could be the JaySam position.

We don't have to say Leary is gonna be the Rivers position bc the word "quarterback" exists

JaySam is a WR, TE, RB, FB "hybrid"

What will this guy be?

to answer the question....given his height, i think he'd be more of a pass catching threat for us than an RB. WR/TE combo kinda seems reasonable. but also could be moved to DE depending on how he fills out. basically...it just depends. seems like the goal with some guys like him are to recruit guys that are athletic and long and have certain desirable physical attributes...then find a place for them once they get on campus and put on muscle, etc.

I think he's going to end up at TE. I doubt he is a hybrid like JSam. He'll be a TE that gets flexed out some to WR. Kind of a replacement for Moss.

Doeren needs to step up. Our 2025 class is gonna struggle if he doesn't go ahead and lock some guys up.

Gonzalez had offers from vt, Minnesota, wv, and some lesser schools.

Jasaih had offers from UL, Michigan state, Michigan, penn state, miss state, and several others.

Gonzalez has only been playing for 1 year and only 2 of the sites have reviewed him so far. Scout actually has him ranked the #1 OT in the state.

Had offers from Duke and Vandy as well, so kid had options. If we can land Gwyn that would give us one of the top OTs and OGs in the state.

Leary's latest interview says he's 100% with NC State and isn't listening to other teams. Also sounds like his family has gone "all-in" with NC State too. So not really worried about PSU, Louisville, etc. anymore.

Tyler Williams
3* safety out of Raleigh

State was only real major offer (ECU and Colorado St in there) but he camped at State this weekend. Guess the coaches liked what they saw

Seems like he is a guy that was getting some interest but teams were waiting for him to camp to decide whether to offer. Sounded like our guys were really impressed and offered him as a CB.

Puts our class at 13, so probably looking at 7-12 more guys. I imagine some of the guys(McNeil and Davis in particular) are going to wait a while to announce so we should have the core of our class committed and then focus on the higher ranked guys that are waiting.

shaping up nicely but the #'s just seem low at this point

how many do we expect to graduate/go pro?

not sure of exact numbers, but have read where this is expected to be a smaller class.

my quick count on the gopack.com roster says 20 seniors...that probably includes some walk ons though.

we've got 13 commits right now, which isn't that bad. for comparison's sake there are 23 (by my count) schools that have more than 13 commits. so we're not that low right now. a couple weeks ago we were...we've added like 5-6 commits in the last couple weeks alone.

Wait isn't 25 the max you can take each year? I think this will be close to a max class

Plus UT DB Griffin and maybe a JUCO dline transfer that I don't think count against that as number

Oh and on grad transfer K

Yeah think this class will be about 25. We are still waiting on some of our bigger recruits who will be waiting a while before deciding, and I believe there is a JUCO camp coming up next month where I bet we'll be looking at some DL and DBs.

dude on PP that keeps a pretty accurate chart of this kinda stuff has 14 scholarship seniors, plus there's always some attrition (by my count, we lost 7 non-seniors between the end of the 2016 season and now - Frasier, Givens, Howell, Josh Jones, McKever, Moss, Paul)

went back and re-read what i thought indicated we would have a smaller class this year....i just read it wrong. so yeah, y'all are right....we'll probably take a full class.

also somewhat interesting (although ultimately insignificant) recent commit Jasiah Provillon was a 4* on Rivals up until a few weeks ago. they've since dropped him to a 3*...all other services have him as a 3

Think there was some optimism we'd land Gwyn this week but it sounds like he's pushing his commitment out and it seems like we're not leading as much as most speculated.

Hopefully our guys will be on him this weekend at The Opening.

Also hope he and Person are there recruiting hard for us haha.

I know we want him to do well but wouldn't we rather not get anymore spot light on him.

I mean if Penn State couldn't sway him and he's from NJ and has ties to PSU including an interview stating it was once his "dream school"...I don't see him flipping.

The better Leary and Person do it only helps their position while recruiting for us. Hopefully they'll be on Gwyn all weekend. The more recruits hear positive buzz about our recruiting class it can only help, esp. since we have some big fish still on the line(Gwyn, McNeil, Davis, etc).

I mean, he'll redshirt one year, and then as a RS-FR be competing with RS-SO McKay(3*) and whatever true FR we get in the 2019 class for the starting job. Definitely a great depth chart from his perspective.

coaches already know about him. the "spot light" seems to be more about fans getting excited about him. Penn St knew about him for a long time, it's not like they just found out about him....they just chose not to pursue him until their QB commit decided to decommit. coaches and staffs know about these kids well before they get to a a big event like this.

also, he seems to solid for us. bring on the hype and don't shy away from it.

Haha, yeah Amile didn't surprise anyone, it was always 50-50 on NCSU vs. Duke. That came down to his parents wanting Duke and him wanting NCSU, and he ended up at Duke. For Leary he wants NCSU and his parents are pushing for NCSU as well...so not really sure what your'e really concerned about. If he wanted to be committed to PSU by now, he could. PSU wants a dual-threat, so he knows it is a bad fit for his skillset and they already have some high-ranked guys in past classes.

Only thing that could hurt us with Leary will be an awful season and Doeren being fired. And if Leary goes to another school in that situation, I doubt it will be PSU.

also...Rivals guys made it sound like the Penn St stuff was a tad overblown to begin with. by all accounts he is solid and always was. the staff will continue to recruit him, that's all part of recruiting....even when a guy commits, you don't stop recruiting him.

He knows the best way to the league is to go to QB U, AKA NC State. He's not going anywhere.
