Jabari Zuniga Turns on the Red Light

New, 18 comments

After a few weeks of silence on the recruiting trail for the Wolfpack, sleeper defensive tackle prospect Jabari Zuniga got #Pack15 back on the board. The late-rising prospect fills the final need for NC State along the defensive line.

After landing star defensive end Darian Roseboro last month, the Pack focused on finishing up this class of defensive linemen on the interior. Immediately after, Zuniga and a host of other defensive tackles popped up on State's radar. The prospect from Georgia reciprocated the interest and scheduled an official visit last week for the Wake Forest contest. After what is presumed to have been a successful visit, Zuniga pulled the trigger on his commitment two days later.

The primary contenders for Zuniga's signature were currently ranked teams Kansas State and Minnesota, while Arkansas and Georgia Tech were both highly interested. The Sprayberry High (Marietta, GA) lineman is a high two star and listed at 6'3" 265 lbs on Rivals.com.

Zuniga has an impressive highlight tape:
