Wolfpack making a late push for Cavaliers' commit and QB Tyler Brosius

Waynesville Tuscola quarterback Tyler Brosius was an early commitment to Virginia. But after taking in the Wolfpack’s victory over Pittsburgh in Raleigh last weekend, that commitment may softening. His dad Mike said moments ago that nothing has been finalized, that his son remains a Cavaliers’ commitment for now. But the Wolfpack—late to offer him—apparently made a strong impression on Tyler.

Although this is a down year for QBs in North Carolina, Brosius is the best in the state, ranked No. 21 on our Top 25 NC prospects list. Through five games, the 6-foot-3, 228-pound pocket passer has completed 63 percent of his passes, with eight TDs, leading Tuscola to a 3-1-1 start.

O'Brien did a great job with Matt Ryan. Why wouldn't a qb want to play for him?

As a State fan, I kind of feel bad for Virginia if they do lose someone who already committed to them.

But it happens often enough in basketball for State that I don't feel bad for UVA after all.

UVA's poor play and the coaching change about to come is probably the biggest reason why the kid has softened his commitment. Wouldn't you want to pick the coaches you play for?

How about because
Wolfpack football is awesome.
Carter-Finley's atmosphere is incredible.
We support our teams no matter what.
We have some of the most diehard fans in the country.
We offer a top notch education.
We have beautiful women.
Our facilities are second to none.
TOB is one of the best coaches in the country.
Shall I go on?

State's women and facilities trail Virginia by a long shot. Education cannot even begin to compare. Not to mention Charlottesville is a much nicer place to spend four years than Raleigh.

Actually, Stan, he is #20 since Gabe King is not a NC recruit and is not playing football in NC.

Actually, he is No.20, and I'll address that tomorrow. Robert Crisp is our new No.1, and everyone else moves up a slot.

Virginia's facilities are not even in the same universe at NC State's. I will not argue about the women as I probably am as uninformed about UVA girls as the earlier poster seems to be with football facilities.

With all due respect to my wife, a UVA grad and her many fine female UVA friends, NC State's women are, on average, a notch above in the eye candy department. Something about the farther South you go the hotter the women get.

This will be a nice pickup for the Pack...we really needed a solid QB prospect in this class.
