With 14 players committed for the class of 2011, NC State hits the recruiting home stretch this…
Five Star OLB Back from UF
The nation's fourth ranked outside linebacker is Stephone Anthony. Anthony, a 6'3 and 230-pound linebacker with speed to burn stopped in Gainesville on his way back to North Carolina. "The trip was good," Stephone Anthony said. "I am glad my parents enjoyed it. My parents got to get down and see who the coaches are and the guys that I might be with for the next couple of years. They were able to talk with the players and coaches and we all went to see coach Muschamp first." The new head Gator had a great conversation with not only Anthony but both of his parents. "He was talking with us about how excited he is to be the new head coach at Florida. Coach Muschamp told us about the guys he is bringing in and the kind of people they are. He told us about the new system and how I would have a chance to come in and compete for a starting spot. It was real exciting because the players down at Florida are very drawn to him and they are all excited. When he told me I would have a chance to come in and maybe start its very exciting." Anthony wasn't able to spend much time with other recruits or current players but did spend quality time with some Gators in Orlando. "It was great to see the Florida guys in Orlando and they are real fun to be around. Pop Saunders might be the funniest of all of them he is real cool and all of them are fun to be around. The day I was leaving those guys were getting all moved in and checked in and stuff like that. I did not get a chance to hang out to much with the recruits because I was leaving as most of them were coming in." All the questions the Anthony family had were answered on this trip. "The questions my parents had were all answered. We wanted to see what type of guy coach Muschamp is and we got a feel for what is going on down in Gainesville." Anthony will take three more official trips with Clemson, Virginia Tech and then closes it out at North Carolina State. He will make his decision on National Signing Day. Some lucky team is getting a great player on and more importantly off the field. Five Star OLB Stephone Anthony.
