Newest Member of the Pack: Brian Sessoms

Before Spring Game festivities got underway on Saturday, NC State picked up their third commitment for the 2015 class in a speedy wide receiver from Winston-Salem.

While Spring Games are fun for fans and players alike, perhaps the biggest purpose of them is to get recruits on campus. While NC State did not have a big group of top recruits on campus (due to other local Spring Games, ACT tests, Rivals Camps, and track meets), they did land a commitment from wide receiver Brian Sessoms. The speedy receiver committed early in the morning to give #Pack15 their third member.  Sessoms is a product of Carver High School in Winston-Salem, NC.

The commitment of Sessoms continues the success of Dave Doeren and staff in the Triad area. After landing Deshaywn Middleton, Germaine Pratt, and Will Richardson from that region in 2014, keeping the momentum forward into 2015 is a good thing. There are other major targets for this class in that area as well, with a chance for area recruiter Clayton White to make a splash.

Having taken three wide receivers for the incoming class, the Pack plan on taking two receivers at the most in 2015. Getting an electric playmaker to fill one of those spots is a positive. Sessoms’ only other major offer was Wake Forest, but he does not come from a typically talent-rich school.

With Sessoms weighing in at 5’8" 165 lbs, there is some inherent risk at taking a player of that size. However, having supposedly been timed at under 4.3 in the 40, his speed would more than make up for the size deficiency. Sessoms is a track star, finishing as the state runner-up twice in his career at the 2A level in different events.
