NC State football opened fall camp on Friday (Aug. 3), and one news item came from Dave Doeren. USC transfer tight end Cary Angeline will be eligible for NC State in the fourth game of the 2018 season.
TE Cary Angeline will have to sit out the first three games of the season, according to Dave Doeren.
NC State had appealed to the NCAA to have Angeline, a transfer from USC, to only have to sit out the first two games, but that was denied

Angeline, a former 4-star recruit from the suburbs of Philadelphia, enrolled at USC in 2016. He went on to redshirt that season, too. In the fall of 2017, after seeing little action across the first two games for the Trojans, Angeline decided to transfer. According to Football Study Hall, Angeline wasn’t targeted in either game he played in. Last December, he picked NC State.
A few weeks back, in July, Doeren addressed the subject — saying he was unsure what Angeline’s eligibility status would be for 2018. NC State was waiting for word from the NCAA after submitting a waiver months prior.
This means Angeline will miss NC State’s first three games — all of which take place in Raleigh: James Madison, Georgia State and West Virginia. He can hit the field in the road contest against Marshall.
There’s a bit of a void at the tight end position for NC State. Cole Cook, a proven blocker, graduated, and Jaylen Samuels — now in the NFL — worked as State’s high-volume short-yardage target the last three seasons.
