Notes: Looking for a player that is flying under the radar but could have a huge year and emerge as a big-time recruiting target? Check out Scotland County standout Adrian Jones.

Jones is claiming offers from Clemson, East Carolina, UNC, and N.C. State, but his recruitment has yet to take off due to his academics. He is hard at work looking to improve the situation, but there is no doubting his talents on the gridiron as he can do it all.

Last year, Jones passed for 1,000 yards and six touchdowns. He also rushed for 748 yards and four more touchdowns.

Coach Quote: "Athletically, Adrian is as gifted as any player that we've had here. As far as ball skills and doing things on the field he's very, very gifted.

"I don't know if I can tie him down to one position. He's going to help himself in recruiting, because he's can project to play many positions. He might be a running back, he might be a receiver, [or] he might be a DB depending on what you need.

"He's just very athletic and has great skills. He receives the ball extremely well; he runs the ball well; he's a strong guy; he's the 100-meter champion in our conference as a sophomore so he runs well.

"He can just project to play so many positions, is gifted athletically, and when he has the ball in his hands he can be fun to watch." -- Scotland County Head Coach Mark Barnes

Scouting Report: "Looks like a track kid playing quarterback with excellent speed but seems to be missing some wiggle in the open field and power in a crowd. Can be a high target based on just pure speed an acceleration alone. Long strider and good hands could help move to wide receiver. Good vision and feel for the game. Patient in following blockers, hits the corner well." -- Scout.com Recruiting Analyst Miller Safrit
