If true, he joins 2014 verbal Coult Culler as prospects at a position of need for N.C. State

N.C. State tackle Quincy McKinney is no longer listed on the team's official roster. McKinney, a sophomore, was the heir apparent to Rob Crisp at left tackle, where McKinney was listed as second string on the depth chart.
The 6-3, 309-pound product of Carver High in Columbus, GA, was a three-star recruit out of high school and a top 50 tackle prospect nationally according to Scout. Unlike the recent departure of graduate transfer Anthony Talbert, who wanted more playing time for his senior season, McKinney's leaving does not appear to be motivated by playing time. Moving on for more playing time does not make sense because he likely would have been a starter just as soon with the Pack as any other FBS squad since he would have to sit out a year as a transfer.
He disappeared from the roster shortly after spring grades would have become known to the coaching staff; unfortunately, grades are likely the culprit for his disappearance from the team.
McKinney's loss is a big one from a depth standpoint, as the Pack lost four seniors that had starting experience from last year's offensive line and now have one less option that they were counting on going forward.

Rising redshirt senior Anthony Talbert is no longer listed on the N.C. State football team's official roster at Gopack.com, and the university recently confirmed that he has left the program. Talbert's departure leaves three scholarship tight ends on the team: redshirt senior Asa Watson, redshirt sophomore Benson Browne, and redshirt freshman David Grinnage.
Only Watson, who had 24 catches for 218 yards and a touchdown last season, has a career catch among the returnees. Talbert played in 39 games over his career and caught four balls for 48 yards a season ago. He had just one career catch before making three grabs in the bowl loss to Vanderbilt.
N.C. State does not have a tight end commitment from the 2013 class, though 6-6, 210-pound Pharoah McKever could possibly grown into the role. The Pack do have verbals from two potential tight ends from the class of 2014.
Talbert is expected to graduate and be able to transfer and play immediately for his senior season.

Two QB transfers that could play immediately are considering N.C. State. The limits of Real Life are preventing me from writing a full report, so this fancy link will have to do for now.

In an effort to build inroads with North Carolina high school coaches and attract more in-state talent to Raleigh, Dave Doeren has added Henry Trevathan, Jr. to his staff. Trevathan, a veteran N.C. high school coach, will serve as Director of High School Relations.
Trevathan, who has been a high school head coach most recently at Southern Alamance, began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at N. C. State. He has coached collegiately as an assistant at Elon and Lenoir-Rhyne and had high school head coaching gigs at Cardinal Gibbons, Broughton, and Western Alamance. He played his college ball at East Carolina.
Trevathan's father, Henry Sr., was the special teams coach for the Wolfpack from 1986-1993.
As few members of the new N. C. State staff have recruiting ties to the state, this seems like a smart move. The younger Trevathan's official duties include assisting with camps, coaching clinics, and arranging unofficial visits for recruits, but his greatest value will be in helping the new staff network with in-state head coaches.

And you can read about it here. Lucky you!
Here's a snippet (so we can get to the minimum word count for me to post this):
With fifth-year senior quarterback Mike Glennon and Jack Tatum award winner David Amerson respectively leading the offense and defense, N. C. State was a fashionable dark horse candidate to sneak past Florida State and Clemson to win the ACC Atlantic Division in 2012, and the Wolfpack controlled their own destiny after beating the Seminoles in Raleigh in early October.
Win out and they would play for the program’s first ACC championship since 1979 and possibly a first BCS bowl as well.
Instead, the Pack limped home at 3-3, including losing to rival North Carolina for the first time in six years, losing an embarrassing 33-6 blowout on homecoming to a Virginia team that was on a six-game losing streak, and having 62 hung on them by Tahj Boyd and the Clemson Tigers.

N. C. State's fourth non-conference date was announced today. It was known that the Pack will open the season with consecutive home games against Louisiana Tech (August 31st), Richmond (September 7th), and Central Michigan (September 14th), but the date against in-state rival East Carolina was TBD. Well, now it's just D. The Pack will host the Pirates on November 23rd, the weekend before Thanksgiving.
It will be the latest non-bowl, non-conference game for the Pack since hosting the same Pirates over Turkey Day weekend in 2006. The Pirates won that game, the last one of the Chuck Amato era, 21-16. East Carolina is coming off an 8-5 season that concluded with a New Orleans Bowl loss to Louisiana-Lafayette.
