Bo Hines, North Carolina State’s leading receiver this past season as a freshman, will transfer to Yale pending acceptance, according to a Yale source.
Hines, a 6-foot-1, 190 slot receiver, made the announcement he was transferring via Twitter on Saturday.
“I must do what I believe is best for my future not only as a student-athlete, but also as a human being,” Hines tweeted.
Hines has been granted a release from North Carolina State according to the Charlotte Observer. Hines finished with 45 receptions for 616 yards and one touchdown. Hines led the Wolfpack with three catches for 79 yards in a win over Central Florida in the St. Petersburg Bowl on Friday and had eight catches for 103 yards, including a 54-yard touchdown against Florida State earlier this season.
The addition of Hines should help fill the void left by the program’s all-time leader in receptions in Deon Randall along with Ivy League Offensive Player of the Year, running back Tyler Varga. He will join an offense that led the nation in total yards (571.5 ypg) and that ranked third in scoring (41.1 ppg). The Bulldogs (8-2, 5-2 Ivy) finished third in the Ivy League last season.
