Boiling Springs Crest High athlete Reggie Wilkins has switched his commitment from North Carolina to N.C. State.
Wilkins, a three-year starter at QB for the Chargers, will be used at wide receiver by the Wolfpack.
“I wanted to play for (NCSU coach Tom) O’Brien,” Wilkins said in a statement released by Crest football coach Roy Kirby. “I’ve become pretty good friends with this year’s recruits and some of the guys that are already there.”
Wilkins attended Saturday’s come from behind N.C. State victory over the Tar Heels, and liked what he saw in Wolfpack QB Russell Wilson.
“He believes he can have something special with Wilson, both on and off the field,” Kirby said moments ago.
Another factor may be that North Carolina already has a large number of young wide receivers, while N.C. State as fewer.
“State told Reggie he was the No.1 receiver on their board for their Class of 2010,” Kirby said.
