NC State hosted several prospects from Glynn Academy in Brunswick, Ga for the Pack's spring game in April. Perhaps the standout of the group was talented S/LB Roy Mangram and Pack Pride caught up with him for his impressions of the NC State program.
"They had a really nice school, nice campus and nice facilities," said Mangram. "Coach McCollum (NC State LB coach Andy McCollum) wants me to play linebacker for them and he told me he wants me to come back to camp so they can look at me some more.
"The spring game was nice and I really liked the crowd support. It was just a spring game and there was all those people out there so I can imagine what it would be like for a real game. Both sides were getting some good licks in and it was just going back and forth the whole game."
After notching 150 tackles and two interceptions as a junior, Mangram received all-region honors. At 6-2, 200 pounds, the rising senior boasts 4.6-second speed in the 40-yard dash. He has the frame to eventually project as a linebacker on the next level.
In addition to NC State, Mangram is also hearing from Clemson, Troy State, LSU, Florida State and Duke. So far, only Troy State has offered with the Pack and Clemson recruiting the hardest.
Mangram told Pack Pride that Clemson and NC State are his top two currently.
He projects as an academic qualifier.
Note- In addition to Mangram, Glynn Academy teammates David Bentley and Frank Demery also visited NC State for the spring game.
