WR Underwood gets second chance with Pack

One N.C. State signee who hadn't appeared on the pre-signing day recruiting lists is wide receiver Bryan Underwood of Cleveland Heights High in Ohio.

Underwood signed with the Wolfpack last February but didn't qualify academically for his scholarship. He planned to attend a postgraduate prep school in the fall, but the prep school folded, according to Cleveland Heights coach Jeff Rotsky.

So Underwood continued working out with the Cleveland Heights players and worked to get improve his standardized test score. Rotsky said Underwood, who's 5-foot-10 and 170 pounds, has achieved a qualifying test score and will enroll in the fall fully eligible for his scholarship.

"He's fast as [heck] right now," Rotsky said. "He's going to bring another year of maturity, which he desperately needed. He's a game breaker. When he gets the ball in his hands, anything can happen."

With the Pack adding Tobias Palmer and Underwood...there is a lot of speed coming to the Pack. Wilson will love those two (and Creecy too).
