Hokies Taking Westover Senior For Visit


Jul 11, 2007

The Virginia Tech Hokies will be the last visit for Lorenzo Williams of Westover High School in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

Williams, who is the No. 28 prospect in North Carolina, already claims offers from Duke, Virginia, and Wake Forest, and several sources have said that Wake Forest is his favorite. Williams stands at 6-2 and 179 pounds, and he told Rivals.com that he is expecting possible offers from Virginia Tech, Clemson, NC State, and North Carolina in the near future.

Williams said he likes the Hokie defense and their coaches, and he also said they have a great program - something we all know.

Williams' favorite, though, appears to be the Demon Deacons in Winston-Salem. The Deacs won the ACC title last year and represented the ACC in the BCS Orange Bowl. Williams said he has a good relationship with the coaches at Wake Forest and he likes the way their program is going.

Here's the million dollar question... How much does family matter? Williams has a

Butch Davis, Tarheels Land Another QB


Jul 11, 2007

Any North Carolina fan knows about the highly anticipated Mike Paulus arriving on campus this fall to play quarterback for the Heels, but UNC is already looking ahead to another quarterback in Braden Hanson.

Hanson, a 6-6, 193 pounder from Charlotte Latin High School, verbally committed to Butch Davis and the Heels on Tuesday. Hanson said he called all the different schools, including North Carolina, to let him know about his decision on Tuesday.

Hanson is the No. 13 prospect in the state, and the No. 11 pro-style quarterback in the nation. It has long been known that Hanson was ready to get recruiting out of his way this summer, but many felt he would commit to Missouri. His family has a lot of connections in Missouri and he even took another unofficial visit there recently.

Charlotte Latin recorded a 13-1 record last season, ending with an NCISAA State Championship. Hansen passed for 2,695 yards and 39 touchdowns last season.

Robinson Target of ASU, But is he Interested?


Jul 11, 2007

Appalachian State has been targeting several North Carolina prospects, but Brandon Robinson may not be so receptive of their interest.

Robinson, a 6-1, 165 pound cornerback from Charlotte Christian, has his heart set on going to a division one program, and there are programs interested. According to Robinson, he attended the NC State camp in Raleigh this year, and the Wolfpack coaches were impressed. Robinson went on to say that NC State would probably make him an offer at the end of the summer.

Robinson also attended camps at Duke and Wake Forest where coaching staffs were also impressed.

Robinson has received one offer from Liberty, but is being recruited very hard by ASU and Elon. Robinson said if it doesn't work out at a big ACC school, he wouldn't have any problem attending one of those three schools. Of those three, it appears App State is at the top of his list.

What about the "Big Four" schools? Which one is his favorite?

Well, it appears

Mountaineers Checking Out Richmond Quarterback


Jul 10, 2007

Derrick Wiley looks to be staying in his home state of North Carolina. Wiley is being looked at by Appalachian State, East Carolina, and NC State - all for different position.

Right now, Wiley is the quarterback at Richmond Senior High School, but that could all change in college. App State is looking to take Wiley as their next quarterback, but that would mean Wiley would be a back-up. Armanti Edwards is entering his sophomore season at ASU, and they are looking for someone to put behind him so they can learn and take over when Edwards graduates.

Wiley has expressed interest in ASU. A few weeks ago, Wiley was in Boone working with Lonnie Galloway, the Mountaineers' WR Coach. WRAL has learned that ASU is almost certainly going to offer Wiley a scholarship, at least there is a "99 percent" chance.

So, what does NC State and East Carolina see in Wiley?

NC State's head coach, Tom O'Brien, called Wiley and told him he wanted to use him as a wide receiver.

R.J. Mattes, a 6-6, 260 pound offensive tackle from Robinson High in Concord, NC, has taken a series of campus tours this summer, and his last visit will be at Appalachian State.

While in Boone, Mattes will attend a team camp for the Mountaineers. Mattes said he attended team camps at Clemson, NC State, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. Mattes also said he will have his listed narrowed down to five teams within "two to three weeks." There are a series of schools Mattes wasn't able to visit because of his busy schedule, but Mattes said he won't eliminate those schools just yet.

Other schools that have made offers for Mattes include Duke, Louisville, Miami (FL), Virginia Tech, and Wake Forest.

There are no reports as to which way Mattes may be leaning.

According to Rivals.com, R.J. Mattes runs the forty in 5.08 seconds, benches 265 pounds, squats 405 pounds, and has a GPA of 3.5.
