The six foot, two inch tall and one-hundred and ninety pound dual-threat quarterback Zack Darlington from Apopka, Florida has received an offer from North Carolina State.

Last season, Darlington threw for nearly 2,500 yards and twenty-nine touchdowns. He compelted sixty-six percent of his passes and even rushed over 700 yards.

It didn’t take long after that season with a stellar performance for collegiate coaches to take notice.

In addition to North Carolina State, Darlington has received offers from: Arizona, Boston College, and Virginia Tech. Boston College is expected to pursue Darlington heavily as they are looking for help at the quarterback position.

The Wolfpack lost Mike Glennon this year to the NFL Draft after graduation, but do have Jacoby Brissett coming to Raleigh. Brissett is transferring from Florida to NC State, but will not be eligible to play until 2014, the same year Darlington will be arriving should he commit. However being an experience quarterback with some playing time for the Gator, Brissett will more than likely being the starting quarterback come 2014 for the Wolfpack.

Doeren and staff need to be getting ready to hit the recruiting trail for next year’s class. The Wolfpack currently have no commitments.
