Punter Baumann commits to N.C. State

Despite a background that has included coaching from two fathers of University of North Carolina players, Wilmington Hoggard High punter Wil Baumann has committed to N.C. State.

The most influential coach in Baumann's career has been Keith Wood, a former Southwestern Oklahoma State kicker recently hired as head coach at Fairmont High after serving as a Hoggard assistant.

But punting guru Bill Renner, the father of North Carolina redshirt freshman quarterback Bryn Renner, helped fine tune Baumann's punting. Baumann also has been helped by Tom Barth, the father of current Tar Heel kicker Casey Barth and former North Carolina player Connor Barth, who kicks for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Casey and Connor Barth both played for Hoggard.

"I don't think they will care too much," Baumann said of committing to the Tar Heels' rival. "They've got a really good punter right now [Grant Schallock], and I don't think they've got a spot [for a punter] right now."

Baumann said he is a longtime fan of N.C. State and is eager to enter the school's engineering program. He is 6-foot-5 and 180 pounds and averaged 44 yards per kick as as a junior.

He also had a scholarship offer from Northwestern, but said he chose N.C. State because of its academics (he carries a 3.5 grade-point average) and proximity to home.

he choose NC State over Northwestern for.....academics?

What am I missing here?

You are missing the fact that he wants to major in engineering and stay close to home. State fits the bill in both of those areas.

So, state is up to four commits now? Nice, a deep snapper and a punter are two of them. TOB is really tearing it up this year on the recruiting trail.

yeah, state's recruiting is weak right now. that has to make it even more painful for the heels to lose to them year after year after year...

State's been very careful about offering out scholarships this season given that we have a limited number, which is part of the reason that we don't have as many commits. TOB's also not as skilled as using the waiver wire as Butch is.

Last year UNC-CH posters on here were offering to jump off a building if they lost to State for the third time in a row. What happens when State wins their 4th in a row over UNC this year?

Good thinking by State. They're going to need a quality punter.

I love the 'State's being careful with their scholarships because of their low number available' bit.

So being careful is using 2 of the first 4 on a long snapper and a punter??? Yeah, that's value...

mister anonymous...state's engineering program is ranked 30th in the country...northwestern's is ranked 21st...pretty close in my opinion and Raleigh is much closer to this kid's hometown. You may want to try a concept known as research before making your comments. Link: rankings link
