Four join N.C. State football team

Four new players – including two transfers – have joined N.C. State’s football team for classes for the spring semester and will participate in spring practice, the school announced Friday.

David Akinniyi, a defensive end who chose to transfer to N.C. State after Northeastern University announced in November that it was dropping football, heads the list. He was a three-year starter and made 40 tackles with 12.5 tackles for loss in 2009.

Mikel Overgaard is a 6-foot-6, 280-pound offensive lineman who spent the last two years in junior college at Snow College in Utah.

The two other new players originally signed with N.C. State in 2009. A.J. Ferguson is a defensive end from Southport, N.C., who spent last season in prep school at Fork Union Military Academy.
Deion Roberson, a defensive end from Tucker, Ga., who suffered a severe ankle dislocation on the second play of his senior season in high school in 2008, also has enrolled.
