NC Linebacker Eyeing The Gamecocks

He's one of the finest linebacker prospects in the Tarheel state and he is homing in on his favorites ...

Michael Briggs is a gameplanning nightmare for high school coaches as he plays both linebacker and fullback. Coach O'Cain is recruiting the Gastonia Ashbrook star at linebacker where he finished his junior season with 7 sacks and 189 tackles.

Briggs currently has no offers, but that should change quickly as he is getting a great deal of attention from North Carolina, Notre Dame, Clemson and others. "My top five are North Carolina, Notre Dame, Clemson, South Carolina and Navy," said Briggs.

What factors will determine where this prized recruit will land? "Definitely the football program and academics. I plan on majoring in either science or Criminal Justice."

Briggs is one to watch over the next few months as he plans to make a commitment before the end of summer.

Briggs plans to camp at North Carolina, South Carolina, Navy and Notre Dame over the next several weeks.
