B. subvelutipes…

is likely. As this type ages, the colors on the stipe fade and the ID becomes more difficult. There are a few other eastern NA red-pored Boletus species that deserve consideration. For instance, B. luridiformis. Cap surface on subvelutipes often bruises black. I think this reaction is more prominent in younger specimens.

The pores seen here look a bit brownish. So B. vermiculosus and B. vermiculosoides are a couple others to consider. Once again, age is a factor, as pore color may either darken or fade.
