'I Really Would Like To Go To N.C. State'

One of North Carolina's biggest sleeper prospects, Javon Brumsey, has stood with one scholarship offer – East Carolina – since the summer. However, interest from another in-state school continues to increase making the possibility of a second offer very likely.

"N.C. State has been coming on strong," said Javon Brumsey. "I went to the last game when they played Virginia Tech. I was really impressed. They are one of my top schools that I really want to go to."

During his stay, Brumsey, a 6-foot-5, 190-pound wide receiver from Elizabeth City (N.C.) Northeastern who owns a legit 4.45-forty, received the latest on a potential Wolfpack offer.

"My recruiting coach [Manny Diaz], he said they need wide receivers, but they are trying to wait towards the end of the school year," said Brumsey. "They are trying to get the best, so they are trying to see how everybody does during their senior year."

Brumsey, who plans to attend N.C. State's bout with Eastern Kentucky this weekend, also unofficially visited East Carolina for the Pirates victory over Duke. Like his visit to Raleigh, Brumsey "had a good time" in Greenville and hopes to attend another game in the future.

As expected, the two aforementioned schools are high on Brumsey's list of favorites with N.C. State currently garnering the leadership position.

"Out of all the schools I really would like to go to N.C. State," said Brumsey. "East Carolina has offered me so they are still big in my mind.

"N.C. State, they have a really good football program, and I've always really liked them. And I have family in the Raleigh area.

"Basically, the same thing with East Carolina – I like their team and they act like they are really interested in me."

The Pirates continued to show that interest this past Friday when members of the coaching staff attended Northeastern's 54-21 defeated of rival Pasquotank County. Brumsey opened up the night's scoring with a nine-yard touchdown reception.

Northeastern is currently 4-0 with their eyes firmly set on a NCHSAA 2A State Title. On the year, Brumsey has caught 23 passes for 333 yards and five touchdowns.

Brumsey Note: Brumsey made his mark this spring at the first Shrine Bowl combine, held in Snow Hill, North Carolina. He checked in at 6-foot-5, 188-pounds and ripped off an impressive 4.43 40-yard dash. He also recorded a 4.43 shuttle and a 27.5-inch vertical jump, but perhaps the most astounding mark was the 17 reps of 185 pounds Brumsey did on the bench press.
