What Does an Official NC State Offer Letter Look Like?

Brett Friedlander

Fifteen high school football players have already committed to NC State's recruiting class of 2021, with numerous others having received verbal offers to join them.

Until Saturday, however, none of those offers have been official in the eyes of the NCAA. That's because August 1 is actually the first day official scholarship offers can go out to 2021 recruits. 

And Wolfpack coach Dave Doeren wasted little time getting them out.

Social media has been flooded all day with players proudly displaying their Wolfpack offer letters. Here's a look at what they say:

2021 NC State offer sheet

  "Congratulations on being identified as one of the elite football players in the country, At this point in your high school career, you know what your family, friends, coaches and teachers have long seen.

Dave Doeren

Head coach

As is the case with the verbal offers that have have previously been extended, these written offer letters are non-binding.
