The 6-0, 175-pounder picked up an offer from NC State in April and visited for the spring game. "I went up to the camp during the summer last year, and they've been to my school a few times," Edmond noted. "I think it's a good school. I've been impressed with their football facilities, how they look." Edmond also has offers from Arizona and Wake Forest, and is receiving interest from Clemson, Duke, Georgia Tech and Notre Dame. Besides NC State, he has visited Clemson, Georgia Tech and Notre Dame, and he said the Fighting Irish were recruiting him the hardest. Edmond had 33 tackles, 12 pass breakups, three interceptions (including a 94-yard pick six) and two forced fumbles last season. He also ran 126 times for 909 yards and seven scores, and competed 35 of 82 passes for 686 yards with seven touchdowns and three picks as an option quarterback. Edmond was second in the state as a soph- omore in the 400-meter dash in track and field. ■ For regular reports on NC State football recruiting plus videos of Wolfpack commitments and targets visit At York Properties, Inc. and McDonald York Building Company we are proud supporters of Wolfpack Athletics and NC State University.
