Doeren Addresses Need at DT

N. C. State should go six deep in the interior line next season, with T.Y. McGill and Thomas Teal returning as starters and A.J. Ferguson, Deylan Buntyn, Carlos Gray, and K'Hadree Hooker providing depth. However, only Gray (a rising redshirt sophomore) and Hooker (rising redshirt freshman) are not juniors or seniors among that group and the previous regime failed to secure even one commitment from an interior lineman. Enter Detroit Cass Tech's Kenton Gibbs, who pledged to the Pack Wednesday. The 6-2, 290-pound Gibbs not only (literally and figuratively) fills a gaping roster hole for the future, he is also a very highly regarded recruit. The plethora of recruiting services generally agree that he is a top 15 talent in the state of Michigan and a top 50 DT recruit nationally. Kudos to Dave Doeren and staff (Eddie Faulkner was the lead man on Gibbs) for coming in late in the game and not just filling the class, but filling it with players that have a legitimate shot at improving the program. Now if they can just bring in a 2013 QB.
