Continuing its pattern of turning to transfer students to help on the defensive line, N.C. State has received a commitment from junior college player McKay Frandsen of Snow College in Utah.
Frandsen is 6-foot-3 and 247 pounds and excels as a pass rushing defensive end, according to Snow defensive line coach Derek Campbell. Frandsen, who's from American Fork, Utah, originally signed with Brigham Young.
"He plays hard, plays aggressive and gives you everything he's got," Campbell said.
N.C. State's defensive line currently includes New Mexico Military Junior College transfer Natanu Mageo, Northeastern transfer David Akinniyi and Georgia transfer Michael Lemon. All three are seniors, as is defensive end Audi Augustin, so the Wolfpack will need immediate help at that position next season.
Another transfer from Snow College, Mikel Overgaard, plays offensive tackle for N.C. State, and Campbell said his guidance helped Frandsen.
"He definitely had good things to tell McKay, and I think it made him feel comfortable leaving Utah and going all the way across the country," Campbell said.
