Mortensen back from UNC visit

While he is not ready to announce which schools have offered him, Landmark Christian (GA) quarterback Alex Mortensen could have a leader after a visit over the weekend.

"The trip to North Carolina was awesome," says the 6-foot-2, 180 pounder who showcased his arm in a rain-shortened Auburn Nike Camp. "I love the North Carolina coaches. They seem to be my type of guys."

Signs point to Alex committing early, and sources indicate he could do so before the end of next week. However, Mortensen is not ready to announce just yet.

"I do not know when I will decide. It could be at any time."

Alex is a top priority for several teams, but he has visited many top schools with his father, ESPN NFL analyst Chris Mortensen, whose value at analyzing the coaches could aid his son's decision.

One of the South's top quarterback prospects and one of the top players from the state of Georgia, Alex was named All-State last season as a junior after throwing for 2,270 yards, 25 touchdown passes and only 6 interceptions (151/241). Over the last two seasons, Mortensen has thrown for 3,428 yards, 37 touchdowns and 16 interceptions while compiling an 18-5 record. Alex has just turned 16, and was ranked as the number 25 player overall in Georgia by TheInsiders' Scott Kennedy.
