The Butkus Award released it’s list of finalists today. One glaring issue I see is the lack of Nate Irving. I know, I know, I’m an NC State fan and therefore am subjected to bias. However, the stats just don’t add up on this one? You’ll see below that Nate should be the second favorite to win and definitely in the top 5.
This spring the Wolfpack welcomed back to their linebacking corps a huge missing piece from the puzzle last season in Rs Jr Nate Irving. Today’s addition will breakdown the linebackers…this is a group of players NC State fans should be very excited about as they boast depth, speed, experience and youth…a rare combination. This group will need to able to both take the pressure off the young secondary and get to the QB in order for the Wolfpack D to take a step forward.
