The biggest news for NC State fans is Raleigh (NC) Athens Drive offensive tackle Robert Crisp is now considered a five-star recruit. Checking in at 6-foot-8 and 300 pounds, Crisp is rated the No. 5 offensive tackle in the country and considered one of the top fifty overall prospects in the country.
Boasting a tremendous frame, quick feet and above average athleticism, Crisp landed more than 30 scholarship offers from across the nation before picking NC State. He chose the Wolfpack over Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina, UNC, and Clemson among others.
Crisp recently made headlines when he was named overall camp MVP at the recent FBU Top Gun Camp, an event that featured several of the nation's top defensive linemen.
He is now regarded as the top player in the state by Scout.com, as Crisp is ranked No. 49 nationally.

Creecy finished his junior season with 48 receptions for 863 yards and 5 touchdowns. He also rushed 22 times for 200 yards and three touchdowns.
He picked NC State over nearly 30 other scholarship offers from programs such as Tennessee, LSU, Clemson, Florida State, and Virginia Tech among others.
NC State has nine commitments in the 2010 class. Crisp and Creecy are currently the two highest-rated recruits.
