Chuck Amato's strength as N.C. State's football coach was recruiting. He was especially wired into the state of Florida. Second-year Wolfpack coach Tom O'Brien came from Boston College, but he hasn't stopped recruiting in Florida.
James Washington, a running back from central Florida, committed to O'Brien and the Wolfpack this week, according to the Orlando Sentinel. The paper also has a list of recruits from the state to major colleges.
