GREENSBORO, N.C. – Guilford College head football coach Chris
Rusiewicz announced
the intention of five more incoming students to play football for the
Quakers Monday. All five students have made their deposit to the college and
will enroll for classes beginning in August. They make up part of
Rusiewicz’s first recruiting class at Guilford since he took over the
Quakers’ program in January.

Alex Bean (Graham, N.C.) lettered two years under coach Mike McCauley at
Graham High School. The 5-11, 170-pound wide receiver earned honorable

for a team-high 618 yards and five touchdowns for the Red Devils. He also
lettered twice in basketball and once in golf.

Steven Gregory (Hamptonville, N.C.) lettered twice for head coach Monty
Chipman at East Wilkes High School. The 6-0, 185-pound kicker/punter
garnered All-Wilkes County and All-Mountain Valley 1A/2A Conference
recognition and was an honorable mention All-Northwest pick according to the
Winston-Salem Journal. Gregory earned four baseball letters as a shortstop
and pitcher and twice received all-league laurels. He also lettered two
years with the basketball team and intends to study sports medicine at
Guilford.

Jack Haymore (Winston-Salem, N.C.) lettered three years at South Stokes High
School. The 6-0, 220-pound offensive lineman received All-Northwest 1A/2A
Conference twice and was a First Team All-Foothills pick for coach Jonathan
Frasher’s team. He was the Red Raiders’ Most Valuable Player this season in
South Stokes’ game with Surry Central High School. Haymore intends to study
history at Guilford.

Daniel McFaddin (Kannapolis, N.C.) lettered three years under coach Ron
Massey ’80 at A.L. Brown High School. The 5-11, 240-pound offensive lineman
won his team’s Most Improved Player Award in 2010. The Wonders went 13-2 in
McFaddin’s senior season and he was a sophomore on the 2008 team that
reached the North Carolina High School Athletic Association 3AA state title
game. Brown won the South Piedmont Conference title in each of McFaddin’s
three varsity seasons. He was the vice president of Brown’s Beta Club and
also earned a spot in the National Technical Honor Society.

Rod Walker, Jr. (Raleigh, N.C.) lettered two years under at Knightdale High
School and earned All-Greater Neuse Conference honors for coach Robert
Senseney in 2010. The 6-0 wide receiver and defensive back led the Knights
in receiving yards and catches in 2010. He also lettered with the track and
field team and helped Knightdale to two state titles. Walker qualified three
times for the states championship meet and placed fourth in the regional
