The 2005 Shrine Bowl featured a couple of Wolfpack commitments and several targets who are clearly high on NC State's recruiting board. Join us on our premium message board as we discuss this year's game with observations from the event!

The Pack Pride crew was in Spartanburg, South Carolina for the 2005 Shrine Bowl. Here’s a sampling of what you’ll find in this report.

Jamal Medlin

  • Pack commitment Nathaniel Irving maybe didn't play as much as he hoped, but was he the most productive linebacker on North Carolina's squad?

  • Richmond County tailback Norman Whitley played great and is certainly a name to watch as his stock should rise after his performance.

  • Is NC State still recruiting Lee County tight end Dennis Godfrey?

  • In what appears to be a weak in-state class, the Shrine Bowl allowed several players improve their stock. Who is on the rise and who is slipping?

  • NC State is in heavy pursuit of South Carolina's Adam Patterson and Jamal Medlin. How did the duo perform against the North Carolina squad?

  • Lumberton's Hutch Eckerson was a rock at left tackle for North Carolina. How did his performance compare to all-world right tackle Carl Johnson?
