Offers piling up for Dalton

CLEMMONS, N.C. -- West Forsyth's season ended last week when the Titans lost to Matthews (N.C.) Butler in the third round of the state playoffs.

  Jalen Dalton has become one of the junior prospects on the South.

  "I think I have 15 or 16 offers offers," said the 6-foot-6, 230-pound Dalton. "I think the last school to offer was Penn State."

  The Nittany Lions join Alabama, Clemson, Duke, East Carolina, Florida State, Georgia, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Penn State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest and West Virginia as schools that have offered Dalton.

  The last few schools he visited were North Carolina and N.C. State.

  "I visited North Carolina for the Miami game," Dalton said. "It was a great visit. (Defensive line) coach (Keith) Gilmore told me to watch Kareem Martin.

 "I went to N.C. State for their game against UNC. It was great and the environment was good. The coaches told me to watch the defensive line and that they could use my height."

  Which schools are standing out for 2015 four-star prospect?

  "Definitely North Carolina, Clemson, N.C. State and Florida State," he said. "I don't really have an order right now, though. Those schools have just been showing me the most interest."

  Before those aforementioned visits, Dalton took trips to South Carolina and Clemson.

  Next, Dalton will start planning offseason trips.

   "I'm not sure where I'll visit," Dalton said. "I'm going to sit down with my parents and (West Forsyth) coach (Adrian) Snow and talk about it soon." Top Stories
