Bo Hines: From First Commitment to Early Enrollee

Rob Kinnan-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.

We have covered the first two 2014 commitments to send in their Financial Aid Agreements, and this week we will get to the first actual commitment in the class, Bo Hines. Hines got the class started in early April and helped recruit other players (especially those in the Charlotte area) and build a class. As an early enrollee, he will try to break into the young Pack receiving corps.

Bo Hines

6'1" 190 lbs
Wide Receiver
Charlotte, North Carolina

Ranked: Three-star #85 WR by Rivals, three-star #185 WR by Scout, #55 athlete by 247 Sports

Main Competitor: Nebraska

Recruiting Process:

Hines collected early offers from smaller schools such as Ball State, Charlotte, and Massachusetts. In February, Hines took his first visit to Raleigh and then had a standout performance at the Best of the Midwest camp in Indianapolis. In the days following, Dave Doeren offered him his first BCS level scholarship. Hines made another visit to Raleigh in early March and then to Nebraska at the end of the month. By all accounts, he had a great visit and put some pressure on the Pack. Hines had a few other visits to other interested schools planned, but within a few days, his recruitment came to an end. The Hines family drove to Raleigh in the middle of the week and Bo committed in person to become the first member of #Pack14 on April 2nd.

What to Expect:

Welker, Welker, and more Welker!

Actually, Hines does not have a lot in common with the oft-compared diminutive receiver. Hines already has average size and speed for a college receiver, with time to get faster and stronger. Of the three rankings, Rivals is probably the most accurate. Hines looks like he will be a solid second or third option in the receiving corps and perhaps an option in the return game. Originally a quarterback, he could provide some options in the Wildcat or other trick plays. Hines may see the field early, but I expect his impact to truly be felt by his junior and senior years.  Also, as one of the lead recruiters for the Wolfpack, the speedy receiver may be the type that becomes a team captain at some point in his career. Hines was a great pickup by the new staff, even if overlooked a bit because of his early commitment.
