Miami, N.C. State, Virginia, and South Carolina are also hot on Sykes. However, any school seriously interested in landing Sykes better act quickly. His current top three favorites include the schools who have either verbally or officially offered.
"I like Virginia Tech, Wake, and ECU," said Sykes. "They are showing me the most interest and I like their schools' academic wise.
"Probably, right now, Virginia Tech [is my leader], because of their history in athletics."
Sykes will hold out on making a final decision until midway through his senior football season. He wants to be able to weigh all of his offers and options before he settling on a school.
Thus far, Sykes has camped at East Carolina and Wake Forest, and is scheduled to attend Virginia Tech's one-day camp on July 9th.
One of the few bright spots on a 1-win team, Sykes caught 23 passes for 400 yards and three touchdowns.
