Charlotte (N.C.) Chambers four-star Kevin Concepcion has been wrestling with his college decision but the day of his announcement is finally here. At his team's game on Saturday against Raleigh (N.C.) Cardinal Gibbons, the star receiver announced his commitment to N.C. State, picking the Wolfpack over North Carolina.

IN HIS OWN WORDS...

"I took my officials and I talked to a few of the guys from each schools," Concepcion said. "Me, Hollywood (Daylan Smothers), Lex (Thomas) , and some of the other guys were all up there and bonding. I really liked it."

RIVALS' REACTION...

Concepcion is an explosive, tough receiver with great route running skills and reliable hands. He does a good job creating separation and makes it easy for the quarterback to get him the ball. Concepcion has plenty of speed too. He has a lot of traits that should make him a favorite target for whichever quarterback is under center.

N.C. State head coach Dave Doeren, receivers coach Joker Phillips, and many current players and commits worked hard to make sure they landed Concepcion's commitment. North Carolina had been pressing Concepcion for a commitment and hosted him for a bunch of visits but it wasn't enough in the end.
