NC State has posted an updated spring roster on GoPack.com and there are several notable changes.
First of all, six players from last year's team are no longer listed on the roster. Those players are: wide receiver Charlie Hegedus, tailback Josh Mercer, offensive lineman Cameron Fordham, defensive tackle Carlos Gray, cornerback Marchez Coates, and fullback Logan Winkles.
Of the group, Gray played the most last season, as he finished the year with 23 tackles and 2.5 sacks. Mercer redshirted last season and Winkles missed the year with a knee injury. Fordham, Coates, and Hegedus were reserves.
The Wolfpack has also listed eight new freshmen on the roster: Tony Adams, Robert Brunstetter, B.J. Hill, Bo Hines, Stephen Louis, Kalen McCain, Germaine Pratt, and Terronne Prescod. Adams, Hill, Hines, Louis, McCain, Pratt, and Prescod were all 2014 recruits expected to be on scholarship. Brunstetter enrolls as an invited walk-on projected to long snap for the Wolfpack.
Finally, tailback D.J. Hunt is listed on the roster. The redshirt sophomore, who hails from Raleigh (NC) Leesville Road High School, spent the past two seasons at West Virginia.
The first day of classes at NC State is January 6th.
