Just after earning an offer from North Carolina at their camp over the summer WR Jarius Morehead said he favored the Tar Heels. Now the picture isn't quite as clear.
Morehead still has a good idea of who he likes and maybe who he
doesn't like as much. But there are more schools in the mix and
instead of one favorite he now has three.
"(North) Carolina, State and Clemson are at the top and that's not
in any order. With Carolina and State I like the coaches a lot. I
like Coach Kap at Carolina. He's a good guy to be around and I like
the campus. It's a good atmosphere around there.
"Coach White at State is great. He's like one of my old coaches I
used to hang around all the time. You really click with him. It
would be great to get recruited by him and then have him as a
Clemson could be the dark horse contender. The Tigers have not
offered but Morehead has a bit of a history with the school even if
not with the coaches. Morehead said he grew up as a Clemson fan so
if they offer they could push for the drivers seat.
Morehead added that NC State and North Carolina have his "highest
interest" while Clemson is behind those two in part because they
have not offered.
Morehead likes what he's seen out of NC State so far in 2013.
"I think they're doing pretty well so far. I haven't watched TV
because I'm usually working on the weekends but I'll watch the stuff
they send me and it looks like they're doing good."
Florida State, Clemson, Wake Forest, Georgia Tech, Duke and Indiana
have let Morehead know that they know about him and will be in
further contact down the road.
Eastern Guilford is undefeated through three games and Morehead has
around 200 receiving yards and two touchdowns in spite of facing
double and triple teams. Since he hasn't been able to get breathing
room on deep routes Eastern Guilford's quarterback has been
targeting Morehead on screens and short passing routes.
