Lots of locals will be playing in college games this Saturday, so send us your list as we get set to head to college level of football for this week…DJ Reader(DL/Grimsley) is still at it down at Clemson and it is easy to forget about him since he is out of state, but he is still a key Tiger…..Might get to meet up with Stadniks from South Carolina this season, as they are both on the OL for the Gamecocks…..

Saw Jarcob McCann(Northeast Guilford HS) on the roster for Appalachian State as a Tight End for the Mountaineers as they head out to Montana on Saturday….Also with APP you have WR/KR Tony Washington(High Point Andrews) DB Kevin Walton(Grimsley) and DL Adam Scott from Northwest Guilford…And we have mentioned others(DavidSon/RB-WG) prior to this post….

Charlotte has Mark Petitt(Western Guilford) ready to start at linebacker and they also have Larry Ogunjobi(DL Ragsdale, Luke Sonricker(WR/Ragsdale), Brandon Banks(DE Southwest Guilford) and others from our area…Charlotte vs. Campbell and RB Dalton Dillon(Northwest Guilford) on Saturday….East Carolina set to take on Old Dominion and we should still have a few Guilford County kids on the Pirates’ roster…Isn’t Rocco Scarfone(Northern Guilford) still with them…And what about the Jonathan White kid from High Point Central???

Walt Sparks ought to be ready to go for Richmond, as the long-snapper and at LB….Brother Duncan Sparks should be about ready to suit up for Lafayette…Richard Hayes(Dudley) III might be ready to get his shot as a DB at Furman….Justin Johnson(QB) and Will Johnson(K) from High Point Centtral, on their way with Winston-Salem State, we hope and Ricky Lewis Jr. is just about ready to finish up is days at N.C. A&T….

John Spain(LB/Page), Thuc Phan(RB/Page) and Akeem Langham(DB/High Point Central) are all making plans for a big season at Elon….

Got to keep a long look-out out for James SummersQB/Page) at Hinds Community/Junior College) down in Mississippi…..

Lots of names off of the top of my head and send us more, send us others that you are aware of, that might be playing college football this season and they all would be from Guilford County…..Send us list of favorites and we will profile Greensboro and Guilford College locals as they prepard to do battle next week….

Takes a good while to get this lists together even coming from the far fetches of my mind, so spread the word and encourage others to add to the list of locals….

Was thinking of couple of more, while on the exercise trail, and they were Ed Britt(DB/Page) at Presbyterian and Blake Hickman(LB/Page) at UNC-Pembroke….

Others from Ragsdale:
DT Winston Craig will play as a freshman at Richmond.
Brian Nowkolo DE at Furman
RB Marquez Eleazor at Guilford
CJ Gilchrist at Fayetteville State
LB Billy Stone at Hampden Sydney
OG Tyler Ritter at Hampden Sydney
*****Good list here and Ragsdale really has them out there in the college football land…Can anybody top the Tigers?*****

Malik Hampton-Prioleau(Nortehrn Guilford) DE is with with NC A&T…..
John McBeth(Nortehrn Guilford) is at Western Carolina and I think John started up there as a freshman last year…

Not sure if anyone can confirm this, but I heard that Daniel Downing(Northern Guilford) was at Coastal Carolina and he trasferred to the University of North Carolina and he was looking to try and make it as a walk-on on the Tar Heels football team…Good luck to Daniel if that is the case and Reid Baxter(Northwest Guilford) is also at North Carolina trying to make the squad as a walk-on….

DB Jeremy Reynolds for Texas Tech University
LB Denzel Jones will up for NC A&T

  • regap said,

    Jacob Green (Page) DE at Old Dominion

  • footballguy said,

    McFly, McCain, and Harris are not even on the depth chart. Gabe King??? What happened to him/ Where is James Scales?? The Linemen twins from Western are second on the depth chart at South Carolina for the Ole Ball Coach.

  • McFly said,

    @footballguy: I’m not sure where you are looking. McCain is listed as 1st team RUSH and Harris is 3rd team X-reciever. Gabe King is also at Cal (2nd NG)and Scales was dismissed from the team at Oregon back in January. I don’t know if he transferred somewhere else.

  • footballguy said,

    I was looking at a spring depth chart. I just found a new one. Maurice Harris should be higher than he is. If he stayed at QB he would be starting for someone. Lets see is he gets some playing time.

  • tigers said,

    Keith Tankersly from Ragsdale at Winston Salem State

  • Go Big Blue said,

    It should not be hard to remember DJ Reader at Clemson. He was only on TV every Saturday last year as a true freshman and will continue to get more playing time on the D-Line as a sophomore this year for the top ten ranked Tigers.

  • footballguy said,

    Judging from the type of offense that Carolina wants to play, Reid Baxter may not fit. IN addition, he was really not D1 material. Baxter was a good HS Football player, but that was it.

  • footballguy said,

    Also, Daniel Downing at UNC. Same situation. Did good on the HS level, but D1 was out of the question. Good scout team/practice player, but that it is. If you look at the types of players in College Football today you wil lsee that they are tremendous athletes at every position, especially on the D1 level. If a player goes to a smaller school such as UNC-Charlotte, A&T, Western, ..etc..You have better chances to play. I would rather go to a smaller school to play and get better, than to go to a big school for the sake of a big school and disappear.

  • Andy Durham said,

    We had already mentioned Ebron in a previous North Carolina post and have him in another today with Smith HS in the headline….Smith, at least with Ebron, has been getting their props….

    Rameses Rojas at Guilford College is another former Smith player that found his way on to the college football scene….

  • Smith High Gets No Respect said,

    Thanks!

    BLS has at least 8- 10 kids play college football.

    Not sure they play this week but Garrison Herndon–Ragsdale—is playing at Wingate U.

  • tigers said,

    Was there another QB from Ragsdale that is playing college ball? Is it Coleson Herndon? And I think a Romer is playing college ball too

  • NWGHS parent fan said,

    Luke Heavner from Ragsdale (QB) is playing at UNC as a wide receiver.
