Cary Angeline announced on Twitter Wednesday night that he will enter the 2021 NFL Draft rather than return to NC State next fall. In a normal year, of course, there is no decision to be made, since Angeline would be out of eligibility. Since the NCAA gave everybody a re-do for 2020, Angeline was eligible to return for a sixth college season.

Six years is a lot of time to spend playing college football. Hell, five years is a lot. And Angeline has definitely raised his profile since transferring from USC to NC State. Can’t fault him for being ready to go take his shot at getting paid.

Angeline gave NC State 2+ solid seasons, and no doubt his size is a luxury that the Wolfpack will be missed. He set career highs in 2020 with 27 receptions and 412 receiving yards, and he’s still got the bowl game to add on to that. He has 62 career receptions at State, and 12 of those were for touchdowns.

All the best to Cary in his pursuit of the NFL.
