2018 QB Devin Leary commits to NC State


NC State picked up a significant verbal commitment in football Thursday afternoon when Devin Leary committed to the Pack:

Leary, a 4-star on Scout, had offers from multiple other Power Five programs. His other suitors included Boston College, Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Wake Forest from the ACC.

The 6-2, 185-pounder led Timber Creek High in Sicklerville, N.J., to a 12-0 record last season. Leary passed for 3,688 yards and 48 touchdowns with just four interceptions.

With Leary in the fold, it remains to be seen if the Wolfpack will remain a prominent player with another 4-star quarterback: Dakereon Joyner from North Charleston (S.C.) Fort Dorchester High. South Carolina and NC State were among Joyner’s favorites, and he will make his decision on Father’s Day (June 18).

Leary gives NC State four verbal commitments in the 2018 class. He is the program’s second 4-star pickup this cycle, joining running back Ricky Person from Wake Forest, N.C..
