North Stanly defensive tackle CJ Clark has been added to N.C. State’s already loaded recruiting class of 2019.

Clark posted Monday on his Twitter account that he was committing to the Wolfpack. Clark’s commitment gives Pack coach Dave Doeren 10 in-state commitments.

Clark, listed at 6-3 and 303 pounds, is a four-star prospect, according to 247Sports, and the No. 10 ranked player in the state. He is the No. 20 defensive tackle in the nation.

Clark picked the Wolfpack over North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Georgia. Clark was in Chapel Hill on Saturday at UNC’s Freakshow event as the Tar Heels made one final push.

As a junior at North Stanly, Clark racked up 79 tackles (37 solo) and nine sacks. He had a monster junior season, collected 130 tackles (105 solo).
