Weekend Recruit Scoreboard

Inside Carolina tracks the performances of UNC's football recruits each weekend.

  • Tommy Branch: He scored on a three-yard run. -- News & Observer
  • Keith Marshall: He rushed for 50 yards on 20 carries -- News & Observer
  • Romar Morris: He returned a kickoff for a touchdown and despite losing "a bundle of yards to penalties" rushed for 137 yards and three touchdowns.

    "No one in their right mind kicks off to Romar," Salisbury coach Joe Pinyan told the Salisbury Post. "But we put him back there deep, anyway, because it means automatic field position when they kick it out of bounds or short."

    "I expected them to kick it away, but then I saw that ball coming to me," Morris told the Salisbury Post. "I about let it go out of bounds, but then I decided to pick it up. It was a good choice."

    "When Romar gets to the outside," opposing coach Jason Rollins told the Salisbury Post, "it ain't pretty." -- Salisbury Post
  • Travis Riley: He rushed for 105 yards and a two-yard touchdown on 22 carries. However, he left the game in the fourth quarter with a knee injury. -- Independent Tribune
  • Christian Russell: He rushed for 125 yards, including a 29-yard touchdown run, on 19 carries and had a 14-yard reception.-- Fayetteville Observer
  • T.J. Thorpe: He scored touchdowns on a 90-yard reception and a 70-yard fumble recovery. On the touchdown reception, he "broke a pair of tackles, stiff-armed another defender and scampered 90 yards up the sidelines in front of the Jordan bench." He had two total receptions for 101 yards. -- The Herald Sun
  • Marquise Williams: He had 346 all-purpose yards (205 passes and 141 rushing) and had a hand in all four of his team's touchdowns. He tossed touchdown passes of 28 and 36 yards, and scored on runs of six and three yards.

    "That quarterback is amazing," opposing coach Bill Geiler told the Charlotte Observer. "[Mallard Creek offensive coordinator Aaron] Brand has done a great job with that quarterback... They were the better team, and that quarterback is remarkable."

    "This feels great," Williams told the Charlotte Observer. "We've executed well and practiced hard all week. And I said, 'After all this, I gotta get a win over Independence before I leave Charlotte, North Carolina.'" -- Charlotte Observer
