Last week, I spent some time in the Triad region of North Carolina. Below are some news and notes on some of the top prospects.
Kernersville (N.C.) East Forsyth has one of the top programs in North Carolina. The Eagles have a lot of talent all over their roster, but two players in the 2016 class have a chance to be major recruits. Chrishon Springs, a 6-foot-1, 205-pound outside linebacker, has already heard from Clemson, Georgia, UCLA, Nebraska and Ole Miss. The other sophomore is 6-3, 320-pound offensive guard Qorticha Glenn Jr., who has already heard from Duke and Georgia. Both players were varsity starters as freshman.
2015 Randleman (N.C.) wide receiver Juval Mollette continues to add scholarship offers. The 6-4, 195-pound four-star prospect holds offers from Duke, East Carolina, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Tennessee, Virginia and Wake Forest. Along with the schools that have offered, numerous others are showing significant interest. He will visit N.C. State tonight when they host Clemson. He claims no favorites at this time.
2015 Lexington (N.C.) North Davidson defensive tackle Shy Tuttle has over 20 scholarship offers. The 6-foot-3, 315-pound four-star prospect has already visited Clemson this year and had a really good trip. Next, he will visit N.C. State tonight and North Carolina on Sept. 28. Tuttle also said he would like to visit Georgia, LSU, Ohio State, Penn State and Tennessee before the end of the season.
2016 Mocksville (N.C.) Davie County running back Cade Carney has early offers from North Carolina, N.C. State and Wake Forest. He is also attracting interest from Clemson, Duke and East Carolina. Last fall as a freshman, the 5-11, 190-pound Carney rushed for over 1,900 yards and 17 touchdowns.
2015 Denver (N.C.) East Lincoln quarterback Chazz Surratt is a prospect on the rise. The 6-2, 200-pound Surratt recently picked up his first offer from North Carolina and N.C. State could be next. He is also hearing from Notre Dame and Penn State. Last year, Surratt helped lead East Lincoln to a state championship.
Huntersville (N.C.) SouthLake Christian has quickly become one of the top private high school programs in North Carolina. Leading the way is 2016 running back Robert Washington and 2016 wide receiver Connor O'Donnell. The 5-10, 192-pound Washington already has offers from Akron, Arizona State, Louisiana-Lafayette, Mississippi State, North Carolina, N.C. State, Ole Miss, Syracuse and UCLA. The 6-foot, 170-pound O'Donnell has offers from Akron, Mississippi State and UCLA. Both players really like Michigan and the Wolverines showing a lot of interest at this time. They visited Ann Arbor last weekend
