Heels Playing Cards With Local Prep Stars


Jul 5, 2007

A.J. Blue Names Top Three
A.J. Blue, a 6-3 quarterback from North Gaston High in Dallas, N.C., has announced his top three schools. Blue has only received one official offer, Illinois, but has received interest from other schools. North Carolina tops Blue's list, with NC State and the Illini behind. Blue came very close to accepting his offer from Illinois a few weeks ago, but his mother told him to wait and see what other options arise. NC State and North Carolina are waiting to see how Blue's summer class goes before they determine whether or not they will give him an offer. According to Blue, Illinois is recruiting him the hardest, and he said he would like to go up to Champagne for an official visit soon.

Source: Indy Gets East Lincoln Transfer


Jul 4, 2007

Unconfirmed reports have stated that East Lincoln running back Adrian Forney has decided to leave East Lincoln to play at national powerhouse Charlotte Independence.

First off, let me emphasize the unconfirmed part of the opening sentence. This information is nothing more than a rumor, and no public statement has been made by Forney or either school involved.

One may wonder why Forney would leave East Lincoln, a 2A school, to play at Independence - including myself. Indy has their running back position solidified, and Forney would likely be in a supporting role. If Forney continues to play at East Lincoln, he would be more valued and would carry the ball several times over. No credible source has been able to give me a reason Forney would leave East Lincoln, but an anonymous poster wrote on an NCPreps.com message board that Forney's mother had an issue with something at East Lincoln.

Vols, Blue Devils, and More Targeting NC Prep Stars


Jul 4, 2007

One thing we would like to improve on at WRAL.com is our coverage of high school recruiting. I have covered the competition side of things, but I am going to start covering the high school recruiting side as well. Eventually, we hope to make this a weekly recruiting post.

I have talked to some people who I consider "in-the-know" of high school football recruiting, and several rumors and bits of news have surfaced.

Duke Lands First '08 In-State Recruit, Looks For More
Jay Hollingsworth, a running back from Lee County Senior High School, became Duke's first in-state commit from the class of 2008. Hollingsworth, a 3-star recruit at 5-11, 180-pounds, is sure to pack a punch for the Blue Devil offense. Hollingsworth rushed for over 1,000 yards and 12 touchdowns on 126 attempts last season.

Hollingsworth isn't the only in-state player Duke is targeting, though. There has been growing buzz over Quan Jones in Durham. Jones is a senior
