Mullins Wide Open

East Wake lineman Aleric Mullins traveled from Missouri to North Carolina to play high school football. His offer sheet reflects that as schools from the Midwest and North Carolina dominate his list of suitors.

"I moved from Missouri to North Carolina because the situation was better for me," Aleric Mullins said. "I thought the competition might be a little better plus I have family in the area."

Mullins offer list includes Oklahoma, Nebraska, Missouri, Arkansas, N.C. State, and North Carolina.

"I don't have any favorites," he said. "I'm pretty much wide open. I think I will make a decision sometime in the middle of the football season."

Right now Mullins is not favoring one location over the other.

"It doesn't matter to me where (location wise) I play so long as the school is the right fit for me. I'm looking at the coaching staff, the team, and academics in choosing a school. I want to major in education and maybe be a teacher some day."

Aleric (pronounced AL-err-ik) attended camps at East Carolina (team camp) and UNC. He enjoyed the time he spent in Chapel Hill.

"I learned a lot while I was there," Mullins said. "I spoke with Coach [Kenny] Browning and Coach [John] Bunting. They seemed to really like me and said they would love me to play there. They think I am really coach-able and would fit in with what they are trying to do." Aleric does not intend to camp anywhere else this summer."

Mullins said he's looking forward to his senior season.

"I think we have a chance to be very strong this year and challenge for a championship."
