Morehead Likes Pack, Heels Early

Eastern Guilford (NC) junior wide receiver Jarius Morehead likes NC State and UNC early with Clemson lurking as a darkhorse.

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 coach."

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.
