LeMay wants to see UT

The Tennessee coaching staff is already in on several top-flight prospects in the Class of 2013. Sign in or subscribe now to read about this North Carolina product.

A name quickly gaining more and more interest in the recruiting circuit in the Class of 2013 is wide receiver Uriah LeMay.

The 6-foot-1, 188-pounder lines up for one of the top high school teams in North Carolina and he has a long list of schools that have offered a football scholarship, including Tennessee.

"(Tennessee) looks to be a promising SEC powerhouse with how well they are playing with such a young group," LeMay told InsideTennessee.com. "From what I've looked up and who I have talked to, they seem to keep everything real with their players."

Other schools hoping to gain the David W. Butler High product's signature that have a verbal offer on the table are Arkansas, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisville, Miami (Fla.), Penn State, Purdue, Rutgers, Vanderbilt and Virginia Tech.

Cheap parlor tricks won't work on this prospect as his older brother is Christian LeMay, who went through the recruiting process as a four-star prospect before signing with Georgia.

Uriah LeMay is his own person and plans on making a decision with the education of his brother's experiences but strongly suggests that he'll go with whichever school fits him the way Georgia fit Christian.

Uriah was in attendance to see Clemson's home win over Auburn and at the Georgia Dome to see Boise State defeat Georgia.

LeMay said he wants to attend a game in Knoxville this season.

"I do plan on making it down to a game this year, just waiting for the game to be a little early in the day so we are able to make it back for church the following day and not be drained," he said.

After going 16-0 and capturing the NCHSAA Class 4-AA state championship in 2010, Butler lost its season opener this year 28-20 to Mallard Creek. The Bulldogs have since rebounded to win six straight by averaging 56.5 points per game.

Butler quarterback Riley Ferguson has completed 85 of 119 passes for 1,608 yards and 26 touchdowns. He has interest in Tennessee but no offer. LeMay has been on the receiving end on 23 of those passes for 466 yards. Another Bulldog, linebacker Peter Kalambayi, who also has a Tennessee offer, has 60 tackles.

LeMay did not say the trio consider themselves to be a package deal.

"It's been talked about but nothing is for sure yet," he said.

On a side note, the Matthews, N.C., resident said he and his family were once close with former Florida coach Urban Meyer when they lived in Gainesville before moving north when he was in fifth grade.
