Boca Raton’s Bishop to NC State 

By Jason Lieser

North Carolina State’s hold on Pahokee cornerback Jarvis Byrd is questionable right now, but Wolfpack has secured a verbal commitment from Boca Raton safety Brandan Bishop.


“He’s very happy about his decision,” Boca Raton coach Eddie Giersbrook said. “It’s a great place for him to go to school.”

Bishop had over 100 tackles for the Bobcats this year and led them back to the post-season. He is 6-1, 200 pounds.

“He was unbelievable this year,” Giersbrook said. “The improvement from his junior year was incredible.”

Bishop picked North Carolina State over Purdue, Colorado State, FIU, Troy State and other offers.
