Huge OT Prospect Robert Crisp Commits!

PackPride.com Premium Article on Robert Crisp committing.

Some of you don't have Premium Access, so here's the nitty gritty on Crisp:
  • 6'8", 290 lbs. tackle from Chapel Hill HS
  • Scout.com's 5th rated offensive tackle, and part of Scout's 100 best prospects nationally.
  • Had offers from State, Carolina, Clemson, Georgia, Maryland, Michigan and a host of others.
  • Regarded by many as the state's best football prospect for 2010.
  • His family are huge State fans, and Crisp makes no bones about State being his dream school.
  • He also plays basketball for Chapel Hill HS (*cough* Sidney, can you say "added depth along the front line as a walkon?" *cough*)

Crisp joins the Pack with fellow CHHS prospect Pete Singer, a 5'11", 175 lb. cornerback. Singer runs a 4.5 40 and will help add some depth to State's defensive backfield.

The package deal is big for the Pack as it starts to swing the pendulum back in the Pack's favor in the battle with UNC for the state's top football prospects. State edged the Heels in '08; Carolina landed the better class in '09. Crisp is a huge domino that falls in the Pack's favor as it looks to regain a recruiting advantage within the state borders.

More importantly, though, Crisp brings tremendous size and strength to a line that's already turning into one of the top units in the ACC. Tom O'Brien has made line depth, particularly on the offensive line, a top priority. If O'Brien can continue to mine the Robert Crisps in the area each year, it won't be long before State's OL is one of the best in country.


  1. and get Russell Wilson to give us depth at PG while you're at it. he's not doing anything between January and March anyway.

  2. We are starting to see what we knew we would see when we got TOB. They will call NCSU "O-line U" in the near future. I just hope that we can maintain our defensive prowess to round into a championship team.
