Greenville Rose High football star verbally commits to NC State

The Daily ReflectorDecember 13, 2013 

One week after Kentavius Street’s high school football career came to an end, the Greenville Rose standout declared where he plans to play college football.

Street, a defensive end ranked by as the No. 2 prospect in North Carolina and No. 17 in the country, verbally committed to N.C. State on Friday.

He made two official visits – one to N.C. State and one to Mississippi – and also was considering Louisiana State and Miami, but the 6-foot-2, 265-pound U.S. Army All-American said he was finished with the recruiting process. He said he is “100 percent committed” to the Wolfpack.

“I just came to the conclusion that I couldn’t go anywhere but N.C. State,” said Street, who visited N.C. State last weekend. “I’m closer with the coaching staff than I am with any other coaching staff, so I guess that’s what drew me in.”

The Wolfpack went 3-9 under first-year coach Dave Doeren, but Street said he's excited about the future in Raleigh.

“With the kind of commitment within the program, I know we can do amazing things with the talent we're bringing in," he said.
