Great senior year pays off for Means

Its been quite a senior campaign for Malcolm Means (Lewisville, S.C./Lewisville).

This fall, the two-way standout rushed for 1,043 yards and 10 touchdowns, caught 28 passes for 580 yards and 7 more scores and recorded 28 tackles, 5 tackles for loss, 4 sacks and 4 interceptions.

After Christmas, Means received a qualifying test score, according to the Spartanburg Herald-Journal. Previously only holding scholarships from FCS programs such as South Carolina State and Youngstown State, N.C. State stepped up and offered the 6-foot-1, 190-pound prospect.

Means then turned in a fine performance at the Shrine Bowl. Thursday, he committed to play in the Atlantic Coast Conference for the Wolfpack, multiple sources report.

Shortly after Means received his N.C. State offer, Lewisville coach William Mitchell told the Herald-Journal, "Obviously, this news has jump-started his recruiting with the big schools... We will see what else comes along but Malcolm has worked very hard on and off the field and has been a fine representative of the Lewisville High School community."

The Wolfpack's 2013 class has experience several additions and subtractions since the hiring of new head coach Dave Doeren. They currently have 19 verbals.
