Recruiting fans in the Cumberland County area will get a special treat Friday when one of the state's top uncommitted prospects comes to town.

Seventy-First will play a Wilmington Hoggard squad at Loyd Auman Stadium that features 6-foot-7, 300-pound offensive tackle T.J. Leifheit.

Leifheit has received scholarship offers from more than 30 major programs, but Hoggard coach Scott Braswell said Tuesday that list is now down to three schools - LSU, North Carolina and Southern Cal.

Braswell, who coached the Vikings to a state title in 2007, has plenty of experience with high-profile recruits. Most recently that involved offensive lineman Jonathan Cooper, who signed with North Carolina in February 2008.

Justin Dixon might be playing college football in North Carolina after all, just not for the Tar Heels.

Dixon, who graduated from Smithfield-Selma high school last year, signed on to play football with UNC earlier this year. However, after failing to qualify academically, the star linebacker was forced to consider other options - including spending time at prep school or enrolling at a different FBS school.

In the end, Dixon chose the latter.

A spokesman with the East Carolina football team confirmed to WRAL that he will begin classes at ECU on Tuesday.

Dixon was one of the most heralded signees in UNC's 2009 class. Rated the ninth-best inside linebacker in the nation by, the 6-foot-1 playmaker was considered a four-star recruit.

Though Dixon is scheduled to begin classes Tuesday, ECU spokesman Tom McClellan said the NCAA Eligibility Center is still reviewing his eligibility status. Therefore, there is no word yet on when, or if, he will be able

Apex defensive end Nick Martin was awarded a roster spot on the Liberty football team, according to Nick's father, Allen.

Martin played defensive end at Apex last season where he recorded 36 solo tackles, 10 tackles for loss, 20 assists and eight sacks. He was also a team captain and was named to the honorable mention all-conference team.

The two year starter for the Cougars is expected to play outside linebacker and special teams for Liberty.

Martin will join Apex teammate Kevin Fogg at Liberty, and he is the eighth player from last year's Apex squad to make it to the next level.

Liberty ended the season ranked #14 in the nation in the final Football Championship Series poll. Apex finished last season with a 10-4 overall record, placing second in the Tri-Eight Conference. The Cougars advanced to the third round of the N.C. High School Athletic Association's 4-AA playoffs before losing to Wake Forest-Rolesville.
