Eugene: Pack QBs a 'luxury"

GREENSBORO - N.C. State running back Jamelle Eugene said having first-team All-ACC player Russell Wilson and promising redshirt freshman Mike Glennon at quarterback is a "luxury" that the Wolfpack hasn't had in a long time.

"It's great," Eugene said Sunday at the ACC media kickoff. "We've been struggling to have one (capable quarterback) for the last few yearas. We had a guy here or there. And kinda. And not really. And now we have one certified (Wilson) and another who looks just as good (Glennon)."

Eugene said Glennon's arm is comparable to Wilson's.

"They can both throw it, easily, probably 70 yards," Eugene said. "They can throw the rock, and they can throw a nice, tight spiral. Their accuracy is great. They have two kind of different deliveries. Russell is free lance and Glennon is textbook, but they both have great arms."

I've been an NC State fan since I was a little kid and even when they had Rivers they were missing defense...Then when they had Defense they were missing offense. So I'll take a wait and see approach. Sounds promising however.
