NC State ducked into the transfer portal this week to add veteran Maryland wide receiver Darryl Jones—an immediate addition in experience that should make State’s receiver room better.
Jones hasn’t been a big part of Maryland’s offense the last few years, but has years of experience at the FBS level. Good player, good pedigree; he was an elite high school prospect.
With Emeka Emezie graduating, Jones has a chance to step into a pretty good situation—it doesn’t mean he’ll be a go-to guy, but he definitely has a chance to make a quick impact.
Jones set a career high in 2021 with 319 yards receiving and 23 receptions.
