MAY 2014 ■ 85 ■ FOOTBALL RECRUITING Phillips is a 6-1, 195-pounder who also has offers from North Carolina and Wake Forest. He could play receiver but is pro- jected to be a safety in college. Phillips took an overnight visit to NCSU in late April, sparking a potential commitment watch on the Internet, but he did not pull the trigger. Nevertheless, NC State is believed to be the leader for the three-star prospect. The Pack may be in a similar position with Morehead, a 6-0, 190-pounder who is rated three stars and the No. 61 receiver nation- ally in the 2015 class by Morehead has narrowed his focus to NC State, Wake Forest and East Carolina, despite earlier reported offers from Clemson, North Carolina and Tennessee. Last fall, he had 40 tackles, nine passes broken up and two picks on defense while collecting 289 yards receiving and two scores on offense. ■ Cornerback Very little is known about the recruit- ment of Mike Hughes, a 5-10, 160-pounder from New Bern (N.C.) High, but he is a priority for NCSU, which is likely to take just one corner in the 2015 class. Hughes moved over to offense last year and played as an option quarterback, but corner is his future position. He is highly recruited, reporting offers from Auburn, Clemson, Florida, NC State, North Caro- lina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Vir- ginia Tech, among others. rates Hughes as a four-star tal- ent and the No. 25 cornerback nationally. ■ For regular reports on NC State football recruiting plus videos of Wolfpack commitments and targets visit Gardner Marsh Gas Equipment Company, Inc. 8209 Brownleigh Drive 2119 Jody Road Raleigh, NC 27617 Florence, SC 29501 Ph: 919 787 8214 Ph: 843 669 3136 Ph: 800 334 9245 Ph: 800 868 8988 Fax: 800 400 2596 Fax: 843 661 5236 Web: (919) 821-1350 (919) 832-3770 At York Properties, Inc. and McDonald York Building Company, we are proud supporters of NC State University and Wolfpack Athletics.
