NC State's Jaylen Samuels has lofty goals for 2016

EMBED </>More Videos

NC State's jack-of-all trades is one of the ACC's most dangerous weapons.

Jaylen Samuels touched the ball 121 times last year for the Wolfpack, 65 catches and 56 rushing attempts. It all added up to 965 all-purpose yards and 16 touchdowns -- big numbers.

And yet many fans and folks were left wondering why he didn't see a lot more of the ball in big games.

With a new offensive coordinator in town and a new jersey number that befits his status as a top player, Samuels is not shy about what he plans on accomplishing this year. Given adequate opportunities, it wouldn't be smart to bet against him.


"Just to have this No. 1 on my back, it's an honor to wear it for NC State," Samuels said.
