Zonovan Knight, Southern Nash’s star running back, is headed to Raleigh. 

The rising senior, who decommitted from Duke earlier this season, announced on Twitter on Monday afternoon that he will be joining N.C. State for the 2019 season. 


Knight was named the Telegram’s All-Area Offensive Player of the Year this past season. Knight rushed for 1,877 yards and 27 touchdowns. The running back has his sights on the Firebirds’ all-time career rushing mark, needing just 1,139 yards to become the all-time leading rusher at the school.
