Melton Names A Favorite

A sleeper came up with the announcement of a new head coach at High Point Andrews (NC) in athlete Mario Melton, who already has two offers - and a favorite school Deacon fans can live with.

"I have an offer from Wake Forest and Duke. Wake is talking about wide receiver, but they are recruiting me as an athlete," says the 6-foot-2, 190 pounder, and he certainly likes the Deacs. "I can commit right now or any time, but I am just not ready to do that. They are are a pretty good school, and close to home."

Melton says that with Wake Forest in the lead, three other schools are still recruiting him and in his top-four.

"I like North Carolina State, but they do not have an offer for me this year. Clemson and North Carolina are up there as well."

Melton led Andrews to a berth in the state 2-AA semifinals before the season was nullified due to attendence discrepancies with other players.
