Upper St. Clair offensive lineman Ian Park adds another offer over the weekend.
Junior OL Talks NC State
That was back in September, and Park told Pack Pride that NC State was one of his two favorite schools at the time.
NC State could still turn out to be a factor in Park's recruitment, but so far he hasn't received a verbal offer from the Wolfpack. Pitt and Maryland, meanwhile, have offered. That would seem to put those two schools in the driver's seat for the time being.
Where does NC State stand with the 6-4, 290-pound lineman from Pittsburgh?
"I think coach [Mike] Archer came to school recently," Park said. "He was here maybe two weeks ago. He just stopped by for a little bit. I didn't get to talk to them. I know they're interested though. I know that.
"I spoke to them a little while back. I went to one of their games in September, the one against Western Carolina. I talked to them then. They were pretty interested then and I think they still are."
Park echoed some of the positive thoughts he shared about NC State back then, so he hasn't cooled on the Pack.
"They've got a great stadium and great facilities, plus a ton of fan support. They have a great fan base and it seems like they have a lot of tradition," he said.
Location probably won't be something that causes Park to drop NC State. His brother attends school in New Hampshire, which is a lengthy drive from Pittsburgh as well, and he said that's not too far.
Michigan State, Boston College, Wisconsin, Penn State and several other schools are highly interested in Park even though they haven't offered yet.
