Why NC State? “Overall, it was the best fit for me. I just felt like it was time. I can stay close to home, have my family come watch me play, and play in-state.

They had been my No. 2 school, but they really started to come up for me. I wanted to visit and see if everything you feel about them that was popping in my head was right, and everything with them just felt right.”

Who Did He Pick NC State Over? Ohio State, Tennessee, Florida, Notre Dame, and Virginia Tech, among others

IPS Take On Terrell Dawkins: Dawkins appeared to be intent on heading out-of-state to a bigger name program until he visited for the Alpha Wolf Showcase and committed shortly after. Dawkins is the final piece to arguably the best group of defensive line commits in the country.

Upside is the key word on Dawkins. He oozes with potential and his motor is one of his best traits. There’s three other higher-ranked and higher-profile guys in this class along the line, but there’s some who like Dawkins better than any of the other three -- and his offer list backs that up.

Dawkins profiles strictly as a defensive end and will likely need a couple years in the strength and conditioning program to reach his ceiling.
