Date:

NC State redshirt sophomore WR C.J. Riley (undisclosed) was taken to the locker room during the first quarter of Saturday's game at Clemson.

How serious Riley's issue is, and whether or not he'll be able to return, is unknown at this point in time. On the season the redshirt sophomore has caught 11 passes for 118 yards and a touchdown, but eight of those catches were made in wins over James Madison and Georgia State.

North Carolina State redshirt senior G Terronne Prescod was selected a Pro Football Focus mid-season All-American.

Prescod (6'5/338) has been dominant in his senior season, and has posted the highest PFF grade of any offensive lineman at 90.6. He's one of two Wolfpack offensive lineman who is on this list, joining center Garrett Bradbury. Prescod wasn't on many lists to begin the year, but his ability to help as a run and pass blocker is sure to improve his stock going forward.

NC State redshirt senior LB Germaine Pratt was named the Reese's Senior Bowl Defensive Player of the Week for his performance on Saturday against Boston College.

As Senior Bowl executive director Jim Nagy points out, Pratt (6'3/240) was everywhere on the field on Saturday in the win; making 13 tackles with a sack in the victory over the Eagles. Nagy notes Pratt has the versatility to play the run and get to the quarterback, and there were plays where he showed both "short closing burst and long makeup speed." Pratt missed the 2016 season with a shoulder injury, but assuming the medicals check out, the senior linebacker has an NFL future, as Nagy calls him a potential "next level starter."

NC State redshirt freshman RB Nakia Robinson will transfer.

Robinson had hoped to carve out a significant role behind RB Reggie Gallaspy, or perhaps even start over him, but instead he got pushed down the depth chart as true freshmen Trent Pennix and Ricky Person hopped him. Robinson will look for a better opportunity elsewhere.

NC State senior RB Reggie Gallaspy II rushed for 104 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries in Saturday's 28-23 win over Boston College.

Gallaspy (5'11/235) scored both touchdowns in the first half from one and three yards out. He has now scored a touchdown in every game this season and has seven on the season. The power back consistently rumbled for chunks of yards (4.2 YPC) with his longest run being only 22 yards. After a bye next week, he won't have much room to run against Clemson the week after.
Oct 6 - 5:36 PM

NC State junior WR Kelvin Harmon caught nine passes for 128 yards and a score in a 28-23 victory over Boston College on Saturday.

Harmon continues to dominate as QB Ryan Finley's No. 1 WR and this is his third 100-yard receiving game in five contests this season. His touchdown came from 34-yards late in the third quarter to give the Wolfpack a commanding 28-3 lead. Harmon now has a 33/534/2 stat line through five games this season and continues to boost his draft stock. Harmon will have a chance to shine in the national spotlight against Clemson on October 20th.
Oct 6 - 5:28 PM

NC State redshirt junior WR Jakobi Meyers hauled in 10 passes for 99 yards and a score in a 28-23 victory on Saturday over Boston College.

Meyers rebounded after sitting out a game against Georgia State and only recording a 6/59/0 stat line in the two contests after. This is just his second-best game of the season however after exploding for 14/161/0 in their opening game against James Madison. Meyers is still the second fiddle among pass-catchers behind Kelvin Harmon and will continue to fill that role for the rest of the season. Meyers will have to step up in a tough draw against Clemson on October 20th after a bye.
Oct 6 - 5:18 PM

NC State senior QB Ryan Finley completed 25-of-34 passes for 308 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in Saturday's 28-23 victory over Boston College.

Finley didn't have his best game with two interceptions but was very efficient otherwise. His two favorite targets, Kelvin Harmon and Jakobi Meyers, combined for 19 receptions, 227 yards, and two touchdowns. His first touchdown was from four yards out to Meyers and his second was from 34-yards away to Harmon. This final score was misleading as Boston College had a commanding 28-3 lead with just 2:57 left in the third quarter but allowed three straight touchdowns to end the game. After a bye week, Finley and company will have their toughest test to date against Clemson on October 20th.
Oct 6 - 5:08 PM

NC State and ECU have agreed to a contest for Dec. 1 to make up for their respective Hurricane Florence-canceled contests.

NC State had its game against West Virginia canceled due to Florence, while ECU had its game against Virginia Tech canceled likewise. Knocking out two birds with one stone by scheduling this new game, the 12th on the schedule for both teams. The Wolfpack will have hosting duties for this one. The only complicating factor that would put this freshly-minted contest in jeopardy would be if the 4-0 Wolfpack -- currently ranked No. 23 in the country -- make a surprise run to the ACC title game.
Oct 2 - 3:36 PM

Draft Network's Joe Marino believes North Carolina State senior OL Garrett Bradbury has "early starter upside."

Marino goes as far to say that he will talk about this game when being interviewed as an NFL prospect. He continued saying "Late in the 2nd quarter, NC State committed to the run game and Bradbury created a ton of space. Whether it was working laterally along the LOS to open and seal running lanes or working to the second level as a vertical blocker, Bradbury was the catalyst for the Wolfpack’s 176 rushing yards on Saturday." Marino is bullish on the 6-foot-3, 300-pound prospect and believes he will be selected on Day 2 in the upcoming draft.
Sep 30 - 11:40 AM

NC State senior QB Ryan Finley completed 4-of-6 passes for 91 yards and two touchdowns when facing pressure in Saturday's 35-21 victory over Virginia.

Finley's stats under pressure adds up to an impressive 144.2 passer rating. He spread the ball out consistently, finding eight different receivers and had no interceptions. Finley will look to continue his success against Boston College next Saturday.
Sep 30 - 10:54 AM

NC State sophomore WR Emeka Emezie brought in five passes for 90 yards with a touchdown in a 35-21 victory over Virginia on Saturday.

Emezie also brought in a two-point conversion. His touchdown was an impressive job of adjusting to the football to take the ball away from a Virginia defender from 16 yards to give the Wolfpack a 10-7 lead with just under five minutes left in the second quarter. There are a lot of talented wideouts in the Wolfpack system, but Emezie (6'3/208) has been heavily involved the past two weeks. He should be again next Saturday against Boston College.
Sep 29 - 4:01 PM

NC State junior WR Kelvin Harmon caught six passes for 94 yards and a score in a 35-21 victory over Virginia on Saturday.

Harmon and Emeka Emezie both went over 90 yards in this one, and both were able to find the end zone in the relatively easy win. Harmon's score was a 16-yard touchdown from the right arm of Ryan Finley that put the game out of reach, making it 35-14 in the middle of the fourth quarter. The 6-foot-3, 214-pound wideout has already brought in 24 passes for over 400 yards this year, and the score is the first of the year. He'll have a chance to keep it going next Saturday against Boston College.
Sep 29 - 3:56 PM

NC State senior QB Ryan Finley completed 22-of-32 passes for 257 yards and three scores in a 35-21 victory on Saturday over Virginia.

More of the same for Finley, and that's a good thing. The senior slinger found eight different receivers in this one, but his top target was Kelvin Harmon, who caught six passes for 94 yards and a score. He also found Cary Angeline and Emeka Emezie for scores, and he didn't turn the ball over. Finley and the 4-0 Wolfpack will face Boston College on Saturday.
Sep 29 - 3:43 PM

NC State freshman RB Ricky Person ran for 108 yards on 14 carries in a 35-21 victory over Virginia on Saturday.

Welcome back, Mr. Person. The highly-recruited freshman was outstanding in his first game back since the opener against James Madison -- against an ACC defense, no less -- and was a key factor in NC State picking up the victory. He had a long run of 38 yards, but he made several other quality runs that kept the chains moving, with Ryan Finley finishing off drives with three scoring passes. Expect Person (6'1/210) to get more and more involved in the offense going forward. A fun match-up comes next Saturday against Boston College.
