Daris Workman Brings Immediate Help to the Offensive Line

New, 3 comments

In addition to adding coveted Darian Roseboro to the #Pack15 fold, Dave Doeren and Company picked up a junior college offensive lineman to compete for a starting position next year.

On one of the biggest recruiting weekends of the season, the NC State coaching staff pulled in two commitments that should help immediately next season. One was the much publicized commitment of Darian Roseboro, the other came from junior college offensive tackle Daris Workman. Workman is a name that only became familiar to Pack fans in the last few weeks, but thee importance of his addition should not be underestimated.

Workman is from nearby Dudley High School but went the junior college route (presumably due to under-recruitment) to end up at Contra Costa Community College in California. As a freshman, Workman was selected to the all-conference team and began to make a name for himself. Workman is listed at 6’5” 265 lbs, but has told reporters he is bigger than that now. There were thoughts that Workman could take a visit to Virginia Tech following his trip to Raleigh, but obviously that has been cancelled since his commitment.

With the Pack losing both starting tackles as well as the top backup to graduation, picking up an experienced tackle to compete for one of the jobs is huge. NC State has also added Philip Walton at tackle and hope to add Emanuel McGirt to the tackle rotation as well.
