Tell us how your visit to NC State went this past weekend?

went pretty good. They got a new weight room. It's nice facilities.”
Is NC State still in the picture?
”Yes they are still in it.”
Has Florida State come on hard lately?

recruiting me harder.”
Has playing basketball helped you to be a better offensive lineman?

now. It helps me with my speed and my coordination and all that stuff. It
makes me more athletic.”

Florida State called and said they will be down on Thursday. A coach from NC
State will be down Friday.”
