Clark: Notes from the road

Recruting analyst Michael Clark spent some time on the road last week. Below are news and notes on some of the top prospects.

Winterville (N.C.) South Central

Shawn Furlow is one of the top 2015 running backs in North Carolina. He has early offers from Duke, East Carolina, North Carolina and Syracuse. The 5-foot-10, 185-pound Furlow is also attracting interest from Clemson, North Carolina State, Tennessee and Wake Forest.

Majestic Jordan is only a sophomore, but is already attracting interest from Duke, North Carolina, North Carolina State and UNC-Charlotte. The 6-3, 190-pound Jordan was a varsity starter last fall and should have a breakout season.

Chesapeake (Va.) Oscar Smith

Five-star defensive lineman Andrew Brown remains firmly committed to Virginia. The nation's top defensive tackle has not scheduled his official to Charlottesville yet, but said it is the only one he plans to take. The 6-4, 295-pound All-American will graduate in December and head to Virginia in January

2014 wide receiver Jaylen Bradshaw committed to Virginia Tech back and June and remains 100 percent committed to the Hokies.

Four-star 2015 defensive end Josh Sweat is up to 230 pounds and is primed for a huge junior season. Sweat currently has 10 offers, but look for that number to double or triple in the next few months.

2015 running back DeShawn McClease had a good sophomore season. However, look for McClease to have a huge junior campaign. The 5-10, 170-pound playmaker will be the feature back for the Tigers. He holds offers from Old Dominion, Temple, UNC-Charlotte, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest.

Suffolk (Va.) King's Fork

2015 cornerback TyQuan Weston is one of the most underrated junior prospects in Virginia. I expect the 5-11, 175-pound Weston's recruitment to really pick up in the near future.

2016 running back Deshaun Wethington was a varsity starter as freshman and should have a great sophomore season. The 5-10, 177-pound Wethignton rushed for over 600 yards last fall and I think that number will double this season.

Although it is very early, freshman DeShon Mitchell is a guy to keep an on. The 2017 quarterback competing for the starting job on Oscar Smith's varsity squad. The 6-1, 160-pound Mitchell has the potential to be a very special player.

Suffolk (Va.) Lakeland

Last fall, 2016 linebacker Jaquan Yulee exploded onto the scene. The 6-2 1/2, 235-pound Yulee already has scholarship offers from Hampton, North Carolina, Old Dominion, Temple, Virginia, Virginia Tech. He will be a national prospect.
