Fieulleteau is on the road


Jordan Fieulleteau has taken to the road.

The junior wide receiver from Raleigh (N.C.) Wakefield has been to three North Carolina games, went to Duke last weekend and will visit North Carolina State this weekend as his recruitment starts to pick up speed.

“It's going good right now,” the 6-foot-3, 200-pounder said.

Fieulleteau has one scholarship offer, from NC State, and is hearing from several schools, including North Carolina, Duke, East Carolina, Rutgers, Florida and Maryland.

The Gators offer a chance to live a lifelong dream, as Fieulleteau rooted for Florida from afar while growing up. The attention from Florida is still a bit startling.

“It was just crazy because I would have never thought they would (recruit me) but with the season I'm having so far, I feel blessed and felt like the hard work paid off,” said Fieulleteau, who has 79 receptions for 1,100 yards and 23 touchdowns through 11 games this season.

Florida hasn't offered a scholarship yet but has said they'd like Fieulleteau to attend a camp in Gainesville next summer.

If Fieulleteau is offered a scholarship and commits to Florida, it would continue a trend of North Carolina prospects leaving the state to play college football.

“Maybe they want to play for a championship team,” Fieulleteau theorized when asked why so many in-state prospects leave the state. “The in-state schools haven't been competing for championships.”

As a member of the 2013 class, Fieulleteau has the benefit of waiting to see what happens with the NCAA's investigation of North Carolina before he makes his decision. Moreover, he's in no hurry to make any decision anytime soon.

“I'm wide open right now,” he said.
