Millbrook linebacker James Smith-Williams verbally committed to play football with the N.C. State Wolfpack Tuesday evening, according to his head coach Clarence Inscore.
Smith-Williams, a 6-foot-4, 210-pound rising senior was offered by the Wolfpack in June. He chose N.C. State over other offers from schools including Appalachian State, Davidson, Elon, Charleston Southern, James Madison, Mercer and Western Carolina.
The starting linebacker recorded 70 tackles, ten tackles for loss and four fumble recoveries during his junior season at Millbrook in 2013.
Last season, Millbrook played to a 10-4 record and went 5-2 in the Cap-8 Conference before falling to Wake Forest in the third round of the N.C. High School Athletic Association state playoffs in quadruple overtime.
Millbrook's 2014 season kicks off Aug. 22 with a home game against the Fuquay-Varina Bengals. The Wildcats will also compete in the HighSchoolOT.com Jamboree against Jack Britt on Aug. 16 at Cardinal Gibbons.
