Lyas and fellow freshmen WR Erin Collins and LB Isaiah Moore were suspended, while two others -- WR Antoine Thompson and DE Kevince Brown -- have been dismissed from the team completely. These disciplinary measures stem from an investigation into an on-campus in July in which three sexual assaults were reported. There was also reportedly marijuana and alcohol at the party.

NC State suspended freshman RB Erin Collins for the season-opener against South Carolina.

Following an investigation into an on-campus party in which three separate sexual assaults were reported, Moore was one of three Wolfpack freshmen suspended for the opener. Fellow freshmen WR Antoine Thompson and DE Kevince Brown have been dismissed altogether. Scout.com ranked Collins as the No. 3 all-purpose back in the state of Florida during the past recruiting cycle.

NC State dismissed freshman DE Kevince Brown.

In a statement, HC Dave Doeren said that Brown and freshman WR Antoine Thompson (also dimissed) "made poor decisions that don’t align with the values of our program and each has been handled accordingly." These dismissals come about after an investigation into several incidents of alleged sexual assault which occurred earlier this summer -- though it is important to note that NC State said that the dismissals themselves were not in regard to those sexual assault allegations. Brown (6'5/230) was a two-star recruit in the 2017 class.

NC State dismissed freshman WR Antoine Thompson.

Fellow freshman defensive end Kevince Brown was also dismissed. The punishments come one month after an investigation was launched into allegations of multiple sexual assaults that allegedly occurred at an on-campus party, though the university stated they "are not regarding allegations of sexual assault." The school mentioned that alcohol and marijuana were present at the party. Thompson, a four-star recruit, was one of the crown jewels of the Wolfpacks' last class.

NC State redshirt sophomore WR Jakobi Meyers is feeling comfortable in his position switch from quarterback.

Meyers (6'2/181) initially made the transition from quarterback to wide receiver in the final week of August camp last year. He went on to record a 13-158-2 receiving line for the past campaign. Said Meyers, "I will always love being a quarterback, but at the end of the day, I love playing more than watching. I don’t care where I’m at. I could kick, and I’d want to play over watching."

NC State senior QB Ryan Finley referred to sophomore WR Kelvin Harmon as a "grinder" who "worked his butt off this summer."

At the end of the 2016 season, Harmon (6'3/190) was named to the Athlon Sports All-ACC Freshman team. He earned those honors on the strength of a 27-462-5 receiving line. Harmon averaged 17.1 yards per reception for the campaign. "I’m really excited to see what we can do this year," Finley said. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom ranks Harmon as the No. 163 wideout for college fantasy purposes.

NC State senior DT B.J. Hill "offers next-level size and quickness and flashes power," according to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

"Hill is rated as a late-round pick by a number of scouts, but I completely disagree," Pauline wrote. "I’ve seen Hill bull-rush double-team blocks, penetrate the line of scrimmage and constantly make plays on the ball. I fully believe he’s worthy of being a third-round pick at this point." Hill enters his senior campaign with more career starts (31) than any other Wolfpack defender.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline says NC State redshirt junior T Tyler Jones "displays terrific footwork and lateral range in pass protection as well as explosion as a run blocker."

"Jones also shows a lot of skill blocking in motion, which may be a necessity as he barely measures 6-foot-3 and could eventually be kicked inside to guard on Sundays," Pauline wrote. The 6-foot-3, 300-pound Jones allowed just one sack in the final 11 games of the 2016 campaign.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline writes that NC State senior DT Justin Jones "offers potential as a conventional defensive tackle or three-technique lineman."

"Jones explodes off the snap, plays with great leverage and penetrates the line of scrimmage to make plays in the backfield or outside the box," Pauline wrote. In his first season as a starter last fall, Jones ranked seventh on the team in tackles. After the campaign, he was named an honorable mention All-ACC performer by the league’s coaches.

NC State senior edge rusher Bradley Chubb reminds Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline "of a better version of Derek Barnett."

Barnett was selected No. 14 overall by the Philadelphia Eagles in April’s draft. "Chubb is a long-framed pass rusher who plays with a large degree of athleticism," Pauline wrote. "He’s fast off the edge, easily changes direction and catches ball handlers from the backside. Rarely off his feet, Chubb plays with terrific fundamentals and does a solid job against the run. Occasionally stood over tackle, he makes plays in space when necessary." The analyst believes Chubb could be a top-12 pick in the spring if he has another strong season. Chubb logged 22 TFL and 10.5 sacks last fall.

Rivals analyst Adam Friedman notes that NC State has found unexpected success recruiting the state of New Jersey.

During the outlet's history, the Wolf Pack have signed just seven prospects out of Jersey. Two of those came in the 2017 cycle (Louis Acceus, Josh Fedd-Jackson) and HC Dave Doeren is showing no signs of slowing down during the current cycle -- they currently have three pledges from the state, highlighted by four-star QB Devin Leary, who ranks as Rivals' No. 10 pro-style quarterback in the class.

NFL.com analyst Lance Zierlein believes NC State senior edge rusher Bradley Chubb may have enough athleticism to be considered as a 3-4 OLB for teams that "covet size and power on the edge."

Zierlein ranked Chubb as the No. 9 edge rushing prospect to watch. "Productive face-up rusher with great bloodlines but a lack of explosive qualities as a rusher," he wrote. "Chubb lacks the burst and hips to race and bend the edge as a rusher, but he might have the ability to post quality sack totals if he can improve his hand usage and maximize his power." Chubb logged 22 TFL and 10.5 sacks during a monster 2016 campaign. "Chubb plays with plus body control and is able to play strong through contact in the running game. His motor will not be an issue," Zierlein wrote. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom slotted Chubb into the late first-round in a 2018 mock draft.

NC State senior DL Kentavius Street runs a 4.58 forty, produces a 40-inch vertical and squats 700-pounds.

Street's frame will be labeled as a tweener, since he stands at 6-foot-2 and 283-pounds. He started 11 games at defensive end in 2016 and 10 on the interior in 2015. Outside to inside players can be coveted by the NFL, especially top end athletes who create disruption.

NC State senior H-back Jaylen Samuels sees himself as an NFL running back who could split out for mismatches and catch the ball like Ty Montgomery.

For the Wolfpack, Samuels is a do-everything offensive weapon who has been described at various times as a TE, WR, FB or H-back. We haven't really considered the 5-foot-11, 236-pounder an NFL running back prospect previously, but we've learned not to underestimate him. In three years on campus, he already has 126 catches, 700 rushing yards and 31 total touchdowns. Last year, Samuels logged a 55-565-7 receiving line with 189 yards and six more scores. The Pack intends to get him the ball more this fall. "He’s got great vision as far as being able to accelerate through the holes. And he knows what speed he needs to be at to get to the hole," OC Eli Drinkwitz said.
