North Carolina Recruiting Notebook

Will Grier

News and Notes on some of North Carolina's top prospects.

Grier Breaks National Record

Davidson (N.C.) Day quarterback Will Grier broke the national record for passing yards in a game on Friday night. The junior quarterback threw for 837 yards and ten touchdowns in Davidson Day's 104-80 win over Harrells Christian. On the season, the 6-foot-3, 185-pound signal-caller has thrown for over 5,300 yards and 64 touchdowns. Grier has scholarship offers from East Carolina, Florida, Louisiana-Lafayette, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Wake Forest. Davidson Day will play Christ School for the NCISAA Division II State Championship this Friday.

Mitch Goes Out with a Bang

Although Raleigh (N.C.) Wakefield quarterback and South Carolina commit Connor Mitch's high school career ended Friday night, he went out in style. The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Mitch threw for 645 yards and five touchdowns in a second round playoff loss to Garner. It should not be overlooked that his favorite target and North Carolina commit Jordan Fieulleteau had 306 yards receiving.

Hood Continues his Incredible Season

Charlotte (N.C.) Catholic running back Elijah Hood rushed for over 300 yards again on Friday night. He finished with 315 yards and four touchdowns in the Cougars second round playoff victory over Weddington. In the past three games alone, the 6-foot-1, 215-pound Hood has rushed for 935 yards and ten touchdowns. He has over 2,600 yards on the season and is just few yards shy of breaking Catholic's single-season rushing record. Hood recently said Clemson, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Virginia are schools that are standing out. Charlotte Catholic will host Kannapolis (N.C.) A.L Brown on Friday in the third round of the 3AA playoffs.

2014 Prospects: Stock Up

DeAndre Thompkins has seen his recruitment pick up over the past couple of weeks. The Swansboro (N.C.) star has seven offers – Appalachian State, Duke, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Old Dominion, Penn State, and UNC-Charlotte. The 6-foot, 175-pound Thompkins is one of the most explosive playmakers in the Tar Heel State, regardless of class. Look for him to continue to pick up offers over the next several months.

Kentavius Street is one of the more intriguing prospects in the state's junior class. At 6-foot-4 and 260 pounds, Street has the athletic ability to play defensive end or linebacker. Over the past month, numerous schools have started to pursue him. The Greenville (N.C.) Rose star has offers from Clemson, Duke, East Carolina, Maryland, North Carolina State, Tennessee, and Virginia.

Lorenzo Featherston picked up his third offer last week from Clemson. The Tigers join North Carolina and Tennessee as schools that have offered the 6-foot-7, 215-pound Greensboro (N.C.) Page defensive end. He is a prospect to keep an eye on in the future.
