South Alabama offensive lineman Joseph Scelfo transferring to NC State, per report

Jeff Blake-USA TODAY Sports

I almost began the title of this post "South Alabama center Joseph Scelfo" but then I realized what a terrible mistake that would've been. Just to super double clarify: we're talkin' about football here, folks. Veteran South Alabama center Joe Scelfo is heading to NC State as a graduate transfer, per Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman.

Scelfo earned first-team All-Sun Belt honors with the Jaguars this past season, and was a two-year starter. He has 25 starts at the FBS level to his credit, and he was slated to once again anchor USA's offensive line in 2016. As a graduate transfer, he is eligible to play immediately. And he just might be NC State's opening day starter at center.

The Wolfpack has to replace three starters up front this season, including center Quinton Schooley, a multi-year starter. There is a lot of potential within the offensive line group, but also a heck of a lot of youth. With Scelfo's addition, though, the coaching staff may have at least answered one question mark.

Scelfo was listed at 6'1, 295 pounds by South Alabama.
