WR Scott Long
6-3, 195, 4.33
South Brunswick High School
Southport, North Carolina
The 6-3, 195 pound speedster, who runs a 4.33, left Clemson very impressed. "I went on a recruiting trip to Clemson this weekend. I just got back. I was really impressed," said Long.
The offer list only includes one team at the moment but expect that list to grow quickly over the next few months for this superstar receiver.
"I have an offer letter from Louisville. North Carolina, Clemson, North Carolina State, Boston College, Miami, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Notre Dame are all showing interest."
When asked if he had any early favorites, Long responded, "I was really impressed with Clemson. They are near the top of the list. I really like Carolina. North Carolina and Clemson are probably my top 2 right now."
Coach O'Cain is recruiting the South Brunswick High star for the Tigers. "He is a really nice guy. I talked to him for a long time on Saturday."
Saturday's visit to Clemson wasn't the first trip for the talented receiver. "I went on an unofficial visit last October. That was my first time. I toured the facility and watched them play North Carolina."
Long has all the physical skills to be an outstanding receiver at the collegiate level. "My strengths are my hands, my speed and my power. I have a lot of strength and I have the ability to run after the catch."
The North Carolina standout expects to be one of the leaders for his team this season. "This year I will be stepping into a leadership role of us. I want to work on those leadership skills. I will probably be getting a lot of extra coverage this year. I want to work on releasing with guys in my face."
When does the prize recruit expect to make a decision? "It just depends on who offers. I know that if I get an offer out of the top 2 or 3 schools on my list then I may commit early. If I get an offer from them then I might go ahead and commit."
We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding receiver from North Carolina, right up through signing day 2004.
