The Top Ten still available high school football players from the Carolinas from Stan Olson of the Charlotte Observer and Charlotte Observer.com at Click Here.
The list includes Keenan Allen from Northern Guilford and David Amerson from Dudley, both who have yet to sign. Very important information for those who follow the college recruiting circuits and a great job of breaking down by Stan Olson.
Here’s his remaining Top Ten that haven’t signed:
MARCUS LATTIMORE, Duncan (S.C.) Byrnes, RB: Possibly the best running back in the country. Considering: Auburn, North Carolina, Oregon, Penn State, South Carolina. He’ll choose: South Carolina. The home state tug will be the deciding factor.
KEENAN ALLEN, Northern Guilford, S/WR: The smoothest athlete in N.C., Allen could play anywhere. Considering:Alabama, Clemson, Oregon. He’ll choose: Clemson â€“ although Alabama also has a shot. Oregon is too far away for family and friends.
JOHN FULTON, Manning (S.C.), CB: Expect him to be a shutdown corner wherever he winds up. Considering: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, LSU, South Carolina, Virginia Tech. He’ll choose: South Carolina â€“ in a tight squeeze over Alabama.
ETHAN FARMER, Tabor City S. Columbus, TE/DT: A likely defensive tackle in college, with excellent quickness. Considering: Alabama, Clemson, North Carolina, N.C. State, Penn St. He’ll choose: North Carolina â€“ in a close one over Clemson.
MUSTAFA GREENE, Irmo (S.C.), RB: The Carolinas’ second-best running back, sorting through his suitors. Considering: Clemson, N.C. State, South Carolina, Rutgers, Tennessee, West Virginia. He’ll choose: Rutgers. Sometimes they just want to see the world.
JUSTIN PARKER, Beaufort (S.C.), MLB: A tackling machine with great sideline to sideline speed and 17 offers. Considering: Clemson, Nebraska, N.C. State, South Carolina, Wake Forest, others. He’ll choose: Clemson â€“ his leader all along. Unless the Gamecocks’ late push pulls him to Columbia.
DAVID AMERSON, Greensboro Dudley, S: Smooth and polished, with a nose for the ball. Considering: Clemson, North Carolina, N.C. State, Notre Dame. He’ll choose: Notre Dame â€“ over the Wolfpack; his visit to South Bend blew him away.
KAREEM MARTIN, Roanoke Rapids, DE: Good speed and quickness for his 6-foot-6, 229-pound size. Considering: Clemson, Duke, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Virginia Tech. He’ll choose: North Carolina. They are all close right now, so expect his state university to win this one.
P.J. CLYBURN, West Iredell, S/WR: A tremendous return man who will likely handle that job and play safety at the next level. Considering: Arkansas, East Carolina, Kentucky, Illinois, North Carolina, N.C. State, South Carolina. He’ll choose: East Carolina. The Pirates steal a good one in-state.
NICK JONES, Duncan (S.C.) Byrnes, WR/KR: Good 4.4-second speed and shiftiness; a slot receiver or return man in college. Considering: Auburn, Michigan, North Carolina, South Carolina. He’ll choose: Auburn. The Tigers play the same style of spread offense as Byrnes, and he will be a good fit.
