NC State offensive linemen Terronne Prescod and Garrett Bradbury earn All-America honors

NCAA Football: South Carolina at North Carolina State Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

The accolades continue to roll in for NC State’s talented big uglies. Wolfpack center Garrett Bradbury, who is fresh off winning the Rimington Award given to the nation’s top center, has been named a first-team All-American by the Associated Press.

Wolfpack guard Terronne Prescod received first-team All-American honors from ESPN:

There might not have been a more consistent offensive lineman in the FBS than NC State’s mammoth 6-foot-5, 334-pound guard. His overall grade of 85.7 is best among all FBS offensive linemen, according to PFF, and he gave up only six quarterback hurries in 342 pass-blocking plays. His 86.2 run-blocking grade is 4.1 points higher than any other player. NC State leads the ACC and is ranked No. 3 in the FBS in sacks allowed, with only nine surrendered in 12 games.

Prescod also received a third-team honors from the AP.

Replacing a position coach is one thing but replacing talented players like this is another altogether. The offensive line could take a step back next season regardless of who’s coaching that group and nobody would be surprised about it. We’ll be okay up front, I suspect, but it might take a little more time than usual. (Basically, y’know, don’t throw the new OL coach under the bus if State struggles out the gate in 2019. It probably won’t be his fault.)
