Wide receiver Na'Quan Brown granted extra year by NCAA

Last season Wolfpack receiver Na'Quan Brown suffered a gruesome injury that appeared to end his college career. During garbage time of a 30-18 loss to Louisville, Brown endured a rather nasty ankle injury that sidelined for him the rest of the season. His eligibility was exhausted at the end of the year, and his time with the Wolfpack looked like it was over, until now.

The NCAA has granted Brown an extra year of eligibility, as they sometimes do with players that were sidelined due to injury. Brown saw increased snaps in the Louisville game as a result of suspensions, and held his own. He made a great catch in the corner of the endzone on a 2-pt conversion that, if it had been called correctly, would've cut the game to three points. Although he didn't record many catches last year, this is still pretty big news for the receiving corps. Brown will add another capable pass-catcher to a position group that easily faces the most questions of any group on offense. With the departure of proven players like Bryan Underwood and Bo Hines, look for Na'Quan to have an increased role this coming season.
