Aydan White earns NC State’s lone preseason All-ACC nod

The 2023 preseason All-ACC football team is out, and cornerback Aydan White is NC State’s lone representative. They only release the first team in the preseason, otherwise we’d have seen more Wolfpack representation (Payton Wilson for sure, Shy Battle maybe).

Drake Maye is the preseason Player of the Year, though Jordan Travis got plenty of votes. Nothing egregious there, though I’ll be surprised if a defensive tackle is capable of making the impact necessary to win POY. (Shout out to whichever Clemson fan site guy submitted that vote.)
