RALEIGH — There have already been some good surprises for NC State football this offseason.

Despite finishing with a disappointing 8-5 record and ending the 2022 season with a lackluster 16-12 loss to Maryland in the Duke’s Mayo Bowl, the Wolfpack have grabbed some key elements from the portal of transfer, retained one of his best defensemen and is now looking to add a big-name quarterback.

On Dec. 31, NC State received a New Year’s gift when linebacker Payton Wilson announced he would be returning for a fifth season. The 6-foot-4, 240-pound Wilson finished the season with 82 tackles, including 12.5 for a loss and 4.5 sacks. His retention will be a boon to a defense that has lost two other starters from its core linebackers in Isaiah Moore and Drake Thomas, who left early to declare themselves for the NFL Draft.
