N.C. State’s record-setting offense went out with a whimper in the Gator Bowl loss on Monday night. The next time the Wolfpack offense will take the field, it will have a completely different look.
Receiver Jakobi Meyers, a fourth-year junior who has already graduated, joined the exodus on Tuesday by declaring for the NFL draft.
“I came to N.C. State a kid chasing two dreams,” Meyers said in a statement released by the school. “I’m leaving a man with one dream fulfilled and hopefully another on the way. I would like to thank Coach Doeren, Coach McDonald, my teammates and all the staff here at N.C. State for helping me get to this position.”
Meyers set a single-season N.C. State record with 92 catches for 1,047 yards. Like the rest of N.C. State’s offense, Meyers was quiet in the 52-13 loss to Texas A&M in the Gator Bowl. Meyers had three catches for 19 yards despite the fact that Texas A&M entered the game ranked No. 111 in pass defense and without receiver Kelvin Harmon, who decided to skip the game.
