Foggie has a Breakout Season

Coming into the 2012 season, Juwan Foggie had high expectations. The High Point (N.C.) Central wide receiver lived up to them and is now several college football programs are pursuing him.

"We had a good season this year," said Juwan Foggie. "We didn't expect it to end in the first round, but overall, we did good."

"I led the conference in receiving," he said. "I played decent, but I could have played better."

Foggie felt like he improved this season.

"I learned how to read coverages better this year and how to make adjustments. It helped a lot because I was getting double-teamed more."

His high level of play did not go unnoticed. Several schools are now recruiting him.

"The most recent schools to show interest are Tennessee, Georgia, ECU, Vanderbilt, and Virginia Tech," Foggie said. "North Carolina, N.C. State, Ohio State, and Wake Forest are also still recruiting me."

"There isn't any school in particular I would like hear from, but I would like to hear from some schools in the Big 12."

While Foggie is waiting on his first scholarship offer, a pair of in-state schools are recruiting him the hardest.

"I think N.C. State or UNC could be the closest to offering," said the 6-foot-2, 190-pound Foggie.

"N.C. State mentioned offering when I visited last Saturday. I talked to Coach (Mike) Reed, the recruiter for our area, and he said that they wanted to evaluate me a little more. He said he wanted to keep me in-state to play college football."

"North Carolina hasn't mentioned offering, but I think just want evaluate me more also. They said they want me to go to one of their camps this summer."

The junior enjoyed his trip to Raleigh.

"I really enjoyed my visit to N.C. State," he said. "I just enjoyed being at the game and the atmosphere. The stadium was also really nice."

He hopes to take a few more visits in the near future.

"I know I'm going to get up to ECU soon, and I'm also going to try to get up to Ohio State," said Foggie.

Foggie ended the season with 61 catches for 965 yards and seven touchdowns. High Point Central finished with a record of 9-3.
