NC State adds commitment from 3-star in-state WR Emeka Emezie

The commitment parade rolls on for NC State football. This time, it's Charlotte three-star wide receiver Emeka Emezie who has pulled the trigger. The Pack's staff continues to excel in mining that part of the state--it's one of the more obvious differences between Dave Doeren's regime and Tom O'Brien's.

Emezie already has a nice frame, which is evident in his film. At 6'3 and 190, he's able to push guys around and beat them on jump balls. Size and physicality is something that NC State's receiving corps has lacked for several years now, and that's something Emezie can bring to the table, though he'll need to continue getting stronger once he gets to the college level.

He is a consensus top-20 player in North Carolina and the second-highest rated recruit in State's 2017 recruiting class behind defensive tackle Grant Gibson. As a junior, he finished with more than 1,100 receiving yards and scored 11 touchdowns.

He holds offers from Wake Forest, Kansas, West Virginia, Miami, and Kentucky.
