Fredericksburg (Va.) Chancellor 2014 offensive tackle Steven Moss pulled his first scholarship recently. The 6-foot-5, 270-pounder landed the offer from an ACC program and visited the school this past weekend.
"NC State confirmed they have offered," Chancellor assistant Chris Lam said of Moss. "He had a good visit down there and said the facilities were as nice as he's seen. He liked the weight room and had a good time.
"I know he enjoyed his time with Coach Willis, O'Brien and their offensive line coach."

The fact the first offer is in was thrilling to Moss according to his coach.
"He's ecstatic," he said. "Since all the attention has come about he's just kind of trying to suck everything in the best he can. He's taking it very serious and he's just very excited about the whole process."
Moss plans to head out on a few more visits soon.
"He's planning to go back to NC State for their spring game," he said. "I know he wants to get down to Virginia Tech during spring practice perhaps during spring break or for their spring game."
Meanwhile, what sticks out about Moss as a player?
"He's just a very big kid, a big strapping kid that is athletic and moves well in space," he said. "He runs with his feet and was a physical kid for us this year. The biggest thing I can say is that you don't find too many offensive linemen who have that nasty in them, he has the nasty in him. He's got a chip on his shoulder and will put you down in the dirt as many times as he can.
"His biggest quality is that, he has that mindset that he's going to knock you down again and again every game. Plus, he just turned 16, so he played last year at 15. His body is still changing and he is working hard in the weight. He is a big, strong, fast athletic player."
