Ezemdi Udoh of Terry Sanford High School in Fayetteville, NC has committed to the Wolfpack. The 3-star tight end is ranked as the 53rd best tight end in the nation, and 45th best player in the state, according to 247 Sports
Udoh chose N.C. State over offers from the likes of Tennessee. Virginia, Duke, App State, East Carolina and Elon, among others.
Udoh had finished his Junior season with four catches for 30 yards. He also scored on a pair of 2-point conversion plays. Udoh played both sides of the ball in high school, recording five tackles in 10 games at defensive end.
Dave Doeren and his staff have shown a good history taking 3-star recruits and turning them into stars, and with his 6’5″, 225 lb frame, Udoh looks to be a prime candidate for development, especially once he can get to work with Director of Strength & Conditioning Dantonio Burnette.
Udoh shows a nice mix of strength and speed that should translate well to the next level. His ability to make plays in the open field as well as a good blocking ability should make him a key contributor in the future.
Udoh will join a deep position group and will have a chance to learn behind Cary Angeline and Dylan Autenrieth, as well as upperclassmen Adam Boselli and Dylan Parham. Udoh is currently the only tight end in the 2020 class.
