NC State looks to land transfer OL Tyler Steen; Alabama, Penn State in the mix

NC State has a lot of talent returning to Raleigh next season — and the preseason expectations to match. Even as the calendar approaches March, though, the Wolfpack will look to add more pieces. NC State is in the running for Vanderbilt transfer offensive lineman Tyler Steen.

Over the next month, Steen will visit several programs: Alabama, Penn State, LSU and NC State. According to a report from 247 Sports, Steen could also visit USC and UCLA. He’ll cover some ground.

During his career at Vanderbilt, Steen started 30+ games and spent time at both tackle positions vs. SEC competition.

The 6-foot-6, 315-pound Steen would be an excellent pick-up; scouts like his game, and the Wolfpack could use added muscle along the offensive line. NC State returns ace quarterback Devin Leary; however, the Pack wave goodbye running backs Bam Knight and Ricky Person Jr.

A native of Miami, Steen played his prep football for St. Thomas Aquinas (Fla.). Steen, a 3-star recruit in 2018 class, nearly went to Virginia — picking Vanderbilt over Bronco Mendenhall.
