NC State adds high-profile WR transfer from ACC rival
NC State made a big addition in the transfer portal on Saturday night.
The Wolfpack earned a commitment from Clemson receiver transfer Dacari Collins. He left the Tigers’ program mid-way through the 2022 season after falling out of their receiver rotation.
Here’s Collins’ commitment announcement:

Collins caught just one pass for eight yards this season before leaving the team. However, he caught 16 passes for 221 yards as a true freshman in 2021.
He’s a former 4-star prospect who has the ability to play an impactful role in NC State’s offense as early as next season. Receiver is a position that NC State has struggled to develop in recent years, and Collins could go a long way toward fixing that issue in 2023.
NC State will have a new-look offense next season. The Wolfpack brought in longtime offensive coordinator Robert Anae to call the plays. MJ Morris is expected to be the team’s starting quarterback next season after showing plenty of promise over the second half of his true freshman season in 2022.
Collins will get a chance to play against his old team in Raleigh in 2023. The date for that game is still to be announced.
NC State will face Maryland in the Duke’s Mayo Bowl later this month.
