Aaron McLaughlin commits to N.C. State

On Thursday, McLaughlin made his announcement talking to Chad Simmons of Rivals.

The four-star quarterback had previously committed to Auburn but decommitted in February.

“North Carolina State is the school for me and I know that,” McLaughlin said, per Rivals.com. “They push academics. They have great history with quarterbacks. They push players to be better men, not just football players. I know North Carolina State is the school — it is definitely the school for me.”

Last season playing for Denmark High School in Alphartta, Georgia, McLaughlin passed for 2,018 yards with 17 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He also added 284 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground.
