Someone has officially passed National Lampoon's Van Wilder for the most years spent in college.
His name is Bradley Rozner, a college football wide receiver who will suit up for the 2023 season with the North Carolina State Wolfpack. This season will mark his EIGHTH season playing collegiate football.
Fans are already calling him the new Stetson Bennett.

Every highlight I see from Bradley Rozner, I am more and more impressed.
He really could be a game changer for NC State this fall.

With the Rice Owls this past season, Rozner caught 44 passes for 876 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Now with the Wolfpack, the 26-year-old Rozner will look to add more stats to his resume?.
?I'm a big, physical receiver, who can stretch the field vertically, and hopefully make a lot of big, fun, and exciting plays.?

Do you think Rozner has a chance to get drafted into the NFL? He's 26 years old now, but he's 6-foot-5, 200 pounds, and can stretch the field vertically. Those are certainly some traits that NFL teams would like to have. What's funny is that he's older than NFL stars like Justin Jefferson and Jalen Hurts.
I don't know about you, but I'll certainly be watching for him this college football season.
The Wolfpack's season kicks off Aug. 31 at 7:30 p.m. ET on the road against the UConn Huskies.
