2013 LB Leads Way at Vance
Vance Head Coach Phil Culicerto said, "my team has speed" when talking to Simmons on Friday inside his office and he has a fast linebacker in the 2013 class that will head his next prospect list.
Larenz Bryant is a 6-foot-2, 205 pound linebacker with speed and length. He can move and he is already drawing a good bit of attention.
Expect to hear more on Bryant as the 2011 season progresses. He could be one of the top defenders in North Carolina.
Brewer is a 6-foot-2, 220 pound prospect that plays offensive line and defensive end at Vance. He will likely play rush end on the next level.
Corpening is a 5-foot-10, 175 pound athlete with good speed that can play numerous skill positions. Cornerback will likely be his home in college, but he could be used as a slot receiver too.
Latter is a 5-foot-11, 185 pound prospect that plays quarterback right now. That will likely not be his position in college. He can run and the best way to describe him is, athletic.
Charlotte Christian Keeps It Coming
Desmond Lawrence has created an early buzz and he is a 6-foot-1, 175 pound athlete in the class of 2013.
Lawrence was offered by South Carolina after impressing the Gamecock coaches at one of their camps this summer. South Carolina offered him as a corner, but he could also play free safety on the next level.
Charlotte Christian Head Coach Jason Estep said, "Desmond is very athlete, he plays physical, and he has shown me that he could be a very good corner in college. He can play the run, he has very good ball skills, and he has good size."
Lawrence is receiving interest from many schools in the ACC right now.
Moving on to the next class, Jeb Blazevich is one to watch. He is a 6-foot-4, 200 pound sophomore with football in his blood. His grandfather, Ed Tate Parker played football at Ole Miss and his father, Jim Blazevich played football at Northwestern.
Coach Estep likes his versatility.
"If schools want him to play offense, he could be a tight end in college, but if schools like him for defense, I think he could be a good outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme," said Coach Estep. "He is long, he will hit you, and he can do a lot of things well on the football field."
It is early in the recruiting process for Blazevich, but he is already drawing some attention from Clemson and Duke.
