Fre'Shad Hunter, Cary - Recruiting
Cary defensive end Fre'Shad Hunter committed to N.C. State on Saturday after the Wolfpack's 38-31 victory over Pittsburgh.
The 6-foot-5, 245-pound defensive end announced his commitment to coaches after the game. Hunter has attended all four of N.C. State's games so far this season.
"I just committed to coach O'Brien and N.C .State," Hunter told PackPride.com. "It's something I felt at State this Saturday, and I pulled the trigger. Coach went crazy and I was pumped up. I talked with my mom and she's excited because I followed my heart."
Last week, Hunter narrowed his list to five schools. N.C. State joined Florida State, LSU, Ohio State and Tennessee on his list of five schools.
Hunter has been playing on the offensive line most of the season for the Imps. Last year, Hunter recorded 38 tackles including 8 tackles for a loss and six sacks for Cary.
Cary is 3-3 so far this season, and 1-2 in the Tri-9 conference. The Imps lost to conference foe Holly Springs on Friday night, 21-14. Cary will face cross town rival Green Hope this week.
Hunter is the 13th commitment for Tom O'Brien's Wolfpack from the Class of 2010 and the fourth from the state of North Carolina. Hunter will join conference rivals Pete Singer and Rob Crisp at N.C. State next fall. Singer and Crisp are playing at Athens Drive this season.
The other in-state commitment is Southern Durham wide receiver Tony Creecy.
N.C. State is 3-1 on the season and begins conference play next week.
