According to multiple ESPN reports, quarterback transfers Brandon Mitchell and Steven Bench are considering NC State.

Mitchell, a senior at Arkansas, would have one year of eligibility remaining and would be eligible to play right away, assuming he graduates this summer, as expected.

The 6-foot-4, 239-pounder backed up Tyler Wilson two seasons ago before moving to wideout last fall. He competed for the starting quarterback job this spring prior to choosing to transfer.

ESPN's Joe Schad indicated in this report that Mitchell is considering NC State, USF, UAB, La. Tech, and Northwestern State.

Bench, a freshman at Penn State, completed 2-of-8 passes during his true freshman season. He will be eligible to play right away due to the NCAA's sanctions against Penn State, and he has four years left to play three seasons.

Schad indicated in this report that Bench is considering NC State, Miss. State, and South Florida.

Bench, a two-star prospect according to Scout.com in the 2012 recruiting class, switched his commitment from Rice to Penn State in January 2012.

NC State is in the market for quarterbacks due to a lack of depth at the position. The Wolfpack has just three scholarship quarterbacks eligible to play in 2013: junior Peter Thomas, sophomore Manny Stocker, and true freshman Bryant Shirreffs. Junior Jacoby Brissett must sit out the 2013 season after transferring in from Florida.
