RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina State defensive end Bradley Chubb says he’ll return for his senior season instead of entering the NFL draft.
In a statement released by the school Wednesday, Chubb said it was “the best thing for me” to return and pursue goals of being a first-team all-Atlantic Coast Conference player as well as an all-American.
Chubb’s return is a big boost for the Wolfpack’s defensive front. He had 22 tackles for loss to rank fourth nationally as well as 10½ sacks.
In a statement, coach Dave Doeren called Chubb “a game changer and a difference maker” for the Wolfpack (7-6), who beat Vanderbilt in the Independence Bowl.
