2012 Prospects

• Forest City Chase defensive tackle Carlos Watkins (6'4/290) will make his decision tonight after his game. He is down to Florida and Clemson. Watkins has not even told his coach which school he will be committing to. I believe he will ultimately commit to Clemson, but in a world of 17 and 18 year olds making decisions, anything can happen.

• Asheville running back Tysean Holloway (6'/190) will take his official visit to Duke this weekend. If everything goes as planned, he will to commit to the Blue Devils during the visit.

• Shelby Crest safety Rhaheim Ledbetter (5'11/190) is 100 percent committed to Florida. He will take his official visit on November 26, when they play Florida State.

• Charlotte Phillip O. Berry Linebacker Nick Dawson (6'3/230) has a top three of Clemson, North Carolina, and Louisville. He does not have a leader and will make his decision at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in January.

• Greenville Rose tight end Anthony Rook (6'4/235) remains firmly committed to Wake Forest. He will be in Winston Salem this weekend for the Florida State game.

2013 Prospects

• Georgia Tech offered Scout 100 member Greg Gilmore (6'4/275). The Yellow Jackets are the seventh school to offer the South View star. Tennessee, Clemson, East Carolina, North Carolina, North Carolina State, and South Carolina have also offered the defensive tackle.

• Stanford has offered 2013 Matthews Butler linebacker Peter Kalambayi (6'3/230). That is offer number 10 for the Scout 100 member.

• Tennessee is the latest to offer 2013 Matthews Butler wide receiver Uriah Lemay (6'3/203). The junior now has 15 offers.

• N.C. State has offered 2013 Charlotte Mallard Creek wide receiver Marquez North (6'3/207). He also has offers from North Carolina, Wake Forest, and Vanderbilt.

• Kannapolis A.L. Brown wide receiver Keeon Johnson (6'3/195) has been offered by N.C. State, North Carolina, Duke, and East Carolina.

• Shelby Crest defensive end Dane Rogers (6'4/230) has been invited to both the Under Armour and U.S. Army Combines. He currently has no offers, but I expect that to change. He is getting mail from all over the southeast, but said Clemson is recruiting him the hardest.
