NC State has two committed players participating in the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl Game on Sunday night. Both Darian Roseboro and Nyheim Hines have been in California since last week preparing for this high school all-star game, and both have impressed observers during practice.
The game starts at 9 p.m. ET tonight and will air on Fox Sports 1, so if you're lookin' for an early preview of a couple kids who should contribute early at NC State, here's your chance. Both kids will be playing for the East (full roster here, but unfortunately, no numbers).
Hines has gotten time in the slot during practices, which is nice since that's where he's likely to fit into NC State's roster. Here's a positive practice report on Hines from last Thursday:
Nyheim Hines: The N.C. State commit was very impressive today, connecting with Burrow multiple times on both long and short passes. He is very agile and can plant his foot in the ground and change direction. He got a lot of reps with a couple of receivers nursing injuries throughout the day and showed the ability to play multiple spots in the offense, despite being a running back for most of his career.
And a note on Roseboro, who got a call from new Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh last week:
Darian Roseboro: The N.C. State defensive line pledge had a solid day today, including a sack during the scrimmage session. He's definitely one of the better players on the unit and confirmed he is solid to the Wolfpack, even after Jim Harbaugh got on the phone with him this week to try and get him to take a visit to Michigan.
