Leesville Road High School's Braxton Berrios could pick almost any college in the country to play football at in 2014, but on Friday evening the rising senior trimmed his list of schools to five.

Using a tweet with a screenshot taken from his phone, Berrios listed his five schools in alphabetical order – Clemson, Kentucky, South Carolina, Tennessee and West Virginia.

Berrios noted in his tweet that any new offers from other schools "will be strongly considered."

At 5-foot-9 and 180 pounds, Berrios is rated a four-star player by Rivals.com. The recruiting website ranks him as the 13th best player in the state of North Carolina from the Class of 2014.

Berrios has dozens of offers, including offers from all in-state Atlantic Coast Conference schools, as well as East Carolina.

Last season, Berrios – who plays both sides of the ball – posted 1,200 rushing yards with 22 touchdowns and 800 receiving yards with 10 touchdowns.

Leesville Road posted a 12-1 overall record last season, winning the Cap 8 4-A Conference title with a 7-0 league record. The Pride lost to Garner in the third round of the N.C. High School Athletic Association 4-AA state playoffs.

Would love to see him @ UNC, but of the 5 on his list...best fit is WVU. He'd be just another good player at the others & would likely get lost in the sea of other good players. If he is willing to work hard, he'd be an instant hero & those fans would embrace him like no other school. He could be their next Tavon Austin under Dana Holgorsen & would likely get more national attention in Morgantown than any of the others on his list. The culture is suchw that the entire state backs WVU football & it's stars. Academics are good, too. If Berrios is looking to attain legendary status & the most national attention with the least competition in an environment that will develop his talents for the next level, then he should give WV SERIOUS consideration. Otherwise, he'll just blend in with every other SEC 4 star. This is a great opportunity for him to shine...to stand out & get the recognition he deserves.

GO TROJANS! :)

Good luck to Berrios....going with the SEC or Clemson is a good move for him.

I'm disappointed that Braxton didn't consider any of the in-state ACC schools. Would have loved to see him wearing the light blue. Great young man, and I wish him the best.
