Carolina Day School junior Mac Gourlay has committed to play collegiate soccer for NC State University.
"The first time I stepped on campus, the coaches were super-welcoming," said Gourlay. "I love the staff. The players were welcoming as well. To play in the ACC against the best players in the country everyday is great. It doesn't get any better than this."
Mac has been at Carolina Day since the seventh grade and matured into someone who could play multiple years in the U.S. Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program. Mac was part of an ODP tournament in Italy last summer.
The NCISAA 2-A all-state and All-Carolinas Athletic Association midfielder has been named to the Citizen-Times All-WNC team each of the past two seasons.
