NC State has done well for itself in the Charlotte area since Dave Doeren was hired. That trend of success continued on Tuesday when Mallard Creek High School defensive tackle Grant Gibson announced his commitment to play for the Wolfpack.
Gibson is a high three-star prospect and the most well regarded player among NC State's four 2017 commitments. Rivals considers him a four-star player and one of top 10 prospects in North Carolina. He is listed at 6'1 and 305 pounds, and has an impressive list of offers that includes Louisville, Tennessee, Virginia Tech, West Virginia, and Georgia Tech.
Gibson's addition would make this the fourth straight recruiting cycle in which a Mallard Creek kid signed with NC State. The other three: Thaddeus Moss, Vernon Grier, Jaylen Samuels. The Pack has also nabbed Jack Tocho, Jalan McClendon, Tony Adams, and Bo Hines from the Charlotte area.
