Terronne Prescod Is First Pack Signee

Liz Condo-USA TODAY Sports

Six recruits from Dave Doeren's 2014 class have signed financial aid agreements to enroll early at NC State. We will take a look at each of the signees: who they are, how they got here, and what to expect from them.

Last week, NC State was able to officially welcome six members of the #Pack14 as early enrollees come January. It's a shame that they were not able to get to Raleigh a whole year early, because, yeah. Anyway, every program loves getting players in for spring practice as it is a chance for the student-athletes to get used to both college life and the playbook. We will profile the six early enrollees over the coming days so that you can become familiar with some of the important pieces of NC State's future.

Terronne Prescod

6'5" 335 lbs

Offensive Guard

Decatur, Georgia

Ranked: #24 Guard by Rivals, #45 Guard by Scout, #55 Guard by 247 Sports

Main Competitors:

Auburn, Georgia Tech, Michigan St, Mississippi St, Missouri, Ole Miss, Virginia

Recruiting Process:

This pretty quickly turned into a two team race, with NC State battling long-time favorite Auburn. The big man first visited NC State in May, and the mutual interest soared from there. A few weeks after his visit, Prescod camped at Auburn and finally received an offer from his childhood favorite. However, even after six or seven visits to Auburn, Prescod was reluctant to jump on the offer. He visited Raleigh again a few weeks later and it went well by all accounts. Within days, Prescod and his mother drove up to Raleigh to commit in-person to Dave Doeren. This was a big coup due to the perception that he was an Auburn lock once the Tigers offered.

After his commitment, Prescod took a trip to Auburn, but it was a trip for his high school team and was nothing to worry about. There was a thought that the guard might visit Virginia for the game against Oregon, but that never materialized. Prescod remained solid from day one and even helped recruit other players.

What to Expect

Obviously, the offensive line was not a strength throughout the 2013 season. Prescod brings much needed size and mobility to the group. At 6'5", he has the height and footwork to play some tackle, but the general consensus is that he will line up at guard and pave the way for the running game that Matt Canada hopes to install. Prescod was impressive at the Rivals Camp Series over the summer and played against top talent in the Atlanta area for the past four years.

With both starting guards returning as juniors, and several young players behind them, Prescod will not be expected to jump right into the rotation. With spring practice, he could make a leap and make the two-deep, but I expect him to redshirt as most first year offensive linemen do. He is a high-potential player who could see the field as early as his redshirt freshman year and perhaps be starting as a sophomore. Combined with the other offensive line commitments in the 2014 class, Prescod is part of the foundation for a strong line in the future.
