N.C. State has added another commitment as well, landing 6-foot-4, 285-pound Torian Box of North Clayton High in College Park, Ga.
Box also had offers from East Carolina, Mississippi State and Alabama-Birmingham, but said he picked the Wolfpack because its coaches showed him “the most love.
“They were one of the best schools recruiting me and I've got a little family around that way. And as soon as I saw their facilities it kind of had me in awe. That really got my attention.”
Box, who currently plays tackle, is expected to switch to guard or center at NCSU.
“For a guy my size, they tell me I've got the quickest feet they've ever seen,” Box said. “So I think my feet are my best quality, along with my technique.”
Box, who is entering his fourth season as a starter, committed on an unofficial visit over the weekend. He wants to play in the NFL, and that contributed to his decision.
“Talking with offensive line coach (Don) Horton, he said the year before they came to N.C. State all five of their Boston College starting linemen went to the NFL. That made me feel pretty good about my decision.”
