Elizabeth "Lizz" Layne of Jordan High has received an offer from UNC-Wilmington, according to Falcon women's basketball coach Ty Cox. The offer is Layne's first from a Division 1 school.

A rising sophomore, Layne averaged ten points per game and seven rebounds per game during her freshman year, finishing second on the team in both statistical categories. The 6-foot-1 forward was a PAC-6 All-Conference selection.

In May, Layne made it to the third day of the USA Basketball 17U National Team Trials in Colorado, surviving two cuts and becoming one of the final 70 remaining players from a group that began at 145.

Several other Jordan players are getting next-level interest. According to Cox, Jordan senior and reigning PAC-6 Player of the Year Salita Greene is weighing offers from 12 Division 1 schools, including N.C. Central, Elon, Campbell, Coastal Carolina, N.C. A&T and Appalachian State.

Heritage athlete Jeff Gemmell made a verbal commitment to play college football at UNC-Charlotte on Monday afternoon, according to Heritage Husky head coach Jason McGeorge. 

Gemmell, a 6-foot-3, 216-pound rising senior will play linebacker for the 49ers. He had received interest from other schools as a defensive end and a tight end as well, and will continue to play various positions for Heritage during his upcoming senior season.

"He went to the prospect camp on Friday," McGeorge said. "After camp was completed, Coach Adams called him and offered him a scholarship. He thought about it over the weekend and just felt very comfortable with the staff and program.

"He is very excited and relieved to have this process completed before his senior season."

Gemmell also had offers from Army, Charleston Southern and Gardner-Webb.

During his junior season, Gemmell recorded 90 tackles and nine sacks on the defensive line on his way to being named to the 4-A Cap-8
