NC State WR commit Nate
McCollum – McCollum was unranked and unevaluated prior to his
commitment to the Wolfpack. When we turned on the film for an evaluation it
quickly popped. He’s an explosive, one-cut runner with the ball in his hands
and he has incredible big-play potential evidence by 764 yards receiving on
only 22 catches last season. That equates to a ridiculous 34 yards per catch.
While we haven’t had much of an opportunity for in-person evaluations, McCollum
gives us added confidence for a big initial rankings debut because of his
background in baseball and his 6.33 60-yard dash time, a 99th-percentile
number. We still need to validate size, ball skills and route-running ability
with some in person evaluations but his explosiveness, special teams value and
versatility all look unique.
The move: From unranked to a four-star outside the
Top247 with a 90 rating, McCollum has an opportunity to climb even higher as we
learn more about him and get live evaluations.
Major college sports is basically an oligopoly. There are a handful of teams that actually have a chance to win a title. And outside of a game changing hire (see Bennet,Tony) that will not change. Too much money involved. It's why I do not really care to watch it.
It's why I have come to accept the "win 9 games and make the NCAA tournament" mentality. It's better than sucking and I no longer think we can do better.
Sorry, but can’t say I like how this program is being run year after year. If we were going to raise this program to another level, I think we would have seen it by now. 1979 continues to slip into the past. Just getting to a bowl seems to be the goal these days.Good luck with finishing above third place in the division.
Granted it's early in the 2020 cycle, but for the Pack to be floating in the top #15 of recruiting rankings for the first time since perhaps the Amato years and coming off back to back 9 win seasons with lesser recruiting classes and then to have some fans to be apathetic and/or cynical is pretty astounding to me.At this point in the process I'm thrilled with where the program is at and where it's heading.
Yeah I agree with that, it may be that it's too soon to start thumping our chests about a having a top #15 recruiting class.
