Independence WR Likes NC State

Pack Pride introduces Independence High School wide receiver Javon Rembert.

Independence High School in Charlotte, NC is one of the state's best when it come to producing division one quarterbacks and wide receivers. Just to get on the field as a skill player is an accomplishment in itself at Indy and one player that will be looking to raise his stock and continue the pipeline of Patriots moving on to division one football is WR/CB Javon Rembert.

At 5-8, 180 pounds and 4.6-second speed in the 40-yard dash, Rembert helped Independence to a perfect record and another state championship in 2006. Rembert lined up at wide receiver and kick returner for the Patriots. He is also a track standout for Indy, participating in the 4x100, 4x200 and 200-meter dash. Rembert boasts a personal best of 23.00-seconds in the 200-meter dash.

Rembert was recently invited to NC State for junior day and the Pack are a program he's extremely high on at the current time.

"The facilities up there are wonderful," said Rembert. "All of the facilities they showed us looked nice. They also have a really nice program. We had a chance to go a meeting with the quarterbacks and receivers and they were shoing us some of their plays. That was a really nice segment and they gave me some good feedback."

While Rembert will be working hard during the summer and next season to earn his first scholarship offer, he does have four teams at the top of his early wish list.

"Right now I like NC State, South Carolina, Virginia Tech and Tennessee," he said. "I would say that everyone is pretty much equal right now."

If and when those scholarship offers begin to come, the rising senior says he knows what will be the most important factor in his college decision.

"I really want to go to a place where I fit in and I would like to be able to play early," he said. "I'd really like a chance to get some early playing time.

Rembert transferred to Independence High School from Chesapeake, Va as a sophomore.
