NC WR Could Commit Soon

Southport (NC) South Brunswick wide receiver Scott Long was only able to play in one and half games during his junior season due to an knee injury. The 6-foot-3, 197-pound playmaker was named to the All-Conference and All-County teams as a sophomore. The injury has not stopped the interest coming from college recruiters.

"The rehab is going great. I'm at 100-percent. I went to the NC State camp and ran a 4.5 time and I had a 37-inch vertical, so it's not giving me any problems," Long said. "When I went to the Duke camp they had their doctors look at it and they said my knee was great. I've been at full strength for about a month now."

"Clemson, NC State, Auburn, Wake Forest, Louisville, North Carolina, and Nebraska are on me pretty heavy. I get mail from other schools, but they aren't recruiting me as heavy as those teams are. Right now I have an offer from Louisville, and the Wake coach said they would send out my offer when they get back from vacation."

Duke and Clemson are still evaluating Long for a scholarship which may come after a few games this year.

"They are wanting to see how my injury is holding up and see a couple of game films before they will offer."

Long won't wait too much longer on the offers as he now has a clear leader heading into to July.

"Wake is my leader. The coaches are standing behind me and told me that no matter what happens this season I will still have an offer from them. I was real impressed with everything at Wake when I went there," said Long. "Clemson and NC State are up there right behind Wake."

When does Long plan to make a commitment?

"I'm not going to wait too much longer. I plan on committing before the season or shortly after my season starts."
