Lincoln-Way West’s Justin Witt picks North Carolina State

SHARE Lincoln-Way West’s Justin Witt picks North Carolina State

Lincoln Way-West offensive lineman Justin Witt gave an oral commitment to North Carolina State this week.

The 6-6, 265-pound offensive lineman traces his comfort level with the Wolfpack staff back to when he was a freshman.

“At the time, I was only 6-foot-5, 220 and they told me that he would give me an offer if I get bigger and stronger in the weight room,” said Witt. “My junior year, I got bigger and stronger and he stuck to my word and gave me the offer and a lot of coaches wouldn’t have done that.”

Witt is a three-star according to Scout Recruiting and knew that N.C. State was the place he belonged after taking a visit to Raleigh.

“I took my time, went up for a visit and I was happy with the place, loved the campus, loved the coaches and loved everything about it,” Witt said.

Scout national recruiting analyst Allen Trieu has covered Witt since he was a freshman.

“I like Justin a lot,” said Trieu. “He’s a good athlete and he’s played all over the line, but has the frame and skill set to play left tackle in college, which, we don’t get a ton of those guys every year. He has to keep getting stronger, but you should see a 6’6, 300+ pound kid out there starting at NC State within a few years.”
