NC State is currently in the middle of spring camp, and it's an important one for several current players on the roster. None more so than Jordan Poole, who's looking to make the most of his redshirt freshman year with a spot on the two-deep open at linebacker this fall.

Poole sat down with Alex Wilkinson of Pack Pride for 21 questions about his love for NC State, the work he's put in under Coach Thunder, expectations for the 2022 season, rapid-fire questions and much more!
