I want to apologize to my coaches, teammates, NC State University and Wolfpack Nation for my actions last weekend. That behavior does not represent who I am as a person and who we are as a team. I sincerely regret it and I look forward to making up for my mistakes!— 11 (@payton_wilson21) December 17, 2019
