RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- One of the nation's top offensive line prospects has a short drive to continue his career in college.
North Carolina State announced its 19-player recruiting class Wednesday on Signing Day. The jewel of the crop was offensive tackle Robert Crisp -- who comes to campus from Raleigh's Athens Drive High School.
Coach Tom O'Brien says he wants to build "an NFL line, like we did at Boston College."
Scout.com rates Crisp as a five-star recruit and says he's the nation's fourth-best prospect at offensive tackle.
The recruiting service Scout.com rated N.C. State's class in the middle of the pack in the Atlantic Coast Conference and 41st nationally.
Another signee, Durham receiver Anthony Creecy, is a four-star prospect according to Scout.com.
