Name: Chris Fleurmont
Hometown: Bunn, North Carolina
High School: Bunn High School
Position: Tailback

Notes: Chris Fleurmont actually started ahead of Brandon Barnes in 2006. He was the focal point at tailback with Barnes rotating between tailback and slotback. Fleurmont tallied 900 yards and 12 TDs on just 54 carries, and has seen his recruitment pick up.

"I'm hearing from NC State, Virginia, Georgia Tech, ECU, and Hampton," he said. "Those are the colleges recruiting me so far."

East Carolina has expressed heavy interest.

"Coach Howle said some ECU coaches came by to evaluate me," said Fleurmont. "I don't know a lot about them, but I want to find out more. I hear it is a good school, but I have never been there."

"East Carolina is definitely recruiting Chris," said Howle. "They have already been by here to check on him."

Don't expect an early decision from Fleurmont.

"Even when the offers come I don't think I will choose a college real quick," he said. "I want to take my time so I can make the right choice."

Fleurmont Quote: "I think we will perform even better together this year. We know we have the ability to achieve something special if we work together. It will be good for the both of us and our team."

Coach Quote: "Chris actually played over Brandon for us. That should tell you how good he is because everybody wants Brandon. We share the ball here at Bunn a lot, and I really believe Chris is a player." -- Bunn head coach David Howle
