NCF On The Trail: East Carolina Pirates

SUGAR HILL, Ga. -- With the world’s busiest airport down the road, quarterbacks from across the country flocked to the Atlanta Elite 11 regional camp on Friday at Gary Pirkle Park, including several highly regarded passers from outside the Southeast.

Part of that group was Indianapolis Decatur Central’s Tommy Stevens. The 6-foot-4, 190-pound Stevens traveled more than 500 miles, but it was worth every mile because he proved he has the tools to compete with the best of the best.

HAVELOCK, N.C. – Senior running back Derrell Scott (Havelock, N.C./Havelock) committed to Tennessee in front of a packed auditorium on Monday.
For some programs, losing a record-setting player could make the following season a tough one.

At Havelock, however, the future remains bright for the three-time defending 3A state champions.

Not only does the winner of 47 of the last 48 games return Michael Bowman, ranked No. 146 in the ESPN Junior 300, but also two of the top sophomores in the country.

It was supposed to be a normal week for 2014 quarterback John Wolford (Jacksonville, Fla./Bishop Kenny), who has been committed to East Carolina since September. He thought his recruitment was over and he would just prepare for the next stage in his career.

Tim Yocum PhotographyThe chance to work with Bill O'Brien at Penn State could change John Wolford's mind about his commitment to ECU.
That all changed, though, with a phone call from the Penn State coaches on Wednesday.

“I hadn’t been talking to them at all, it all just happened last week,” he said. “They saw my film and I talked to Coach [Bill] O’Brien and Coach [Tony] Midget. He came down on Wednesday and then I talked to O’Brien that night and he offered me.”

Wake tops state rivals for WR Barbour

August, 10, 2013
8/10/13
1:01
PM ET
Three-star wide receiver Jaylan Barbour (Monroe, N.C./Monroe) has ended the recruiting process and will play for Wake Forest, according to the Enquirer-Journal.

Duke and East Carolina also were squarely in the mix for Barbour's verbal. Appalachian State, Charlotte, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina and West Virginia were his other scholarship offers.

"I had been thinking about it lately, and I decided to call and tell them I was coming there," he told the Enquirer-Journal. "I visited last weekend, and I really enjoyed the campus. The coaches showed me a lot of love. I thought about it a lot this week."

"I liked that everything's within walking distance," Barbour added. "I observed a practice, and everybody was working hard and getting along. ... I finally got my decision off my chest, and I'm good now."

Barbour arrived on the scene as a sophomore when he caught 44 passes for 861 yards and 10 touchdowns. The 5-foot-10, 164-pound prospect missed time last fall due to an ankle injury but still hauled in 42 balls for 521 yards and 3 scores.

Before his junior year, Barbour posted an electronically timed 4.97 40-yard dash, 4.49 20-yard shuttle, 27.3-inch vertical and 59.28 SPARQ at a Nike event.

The Demon Deacons' class now holds nine pledges.

S Mike Rogers picks UCF, not done yet

August, 2, 2013

PM ET
According to the Orlando Sentinel, three-star safety Mike Rogers (Smyrna, Ga./Campbell) has committed to UCF.

"The campus was really nice," he said. "But what called my attention was the coaches and everything and the academics. They were really focused on school work and football. They make sure you get a degree and do something you love at the same time. That caught my attention."

However, Rogers added that he hasn’t completed “shut down” the recruiting process. Charlotte, Cincinnati, Clemson, East Carolina, Georgia Southern, Georgia State, Mississippi State, Missouri, Old Dominion, Ole Miss and Syracuse also offered the 6-foot, 180-pound defender.

He’s the 12th 2014 pledge for the Knights and their top commit on the defensive side of the ball.

Rising senior Taariq Shabazz (Kennesaw, Ga./Mountain) committed Friday to play for Duke, according to multiple reports. Defensive line coach Rick Petri was his primary recruiter.

Shabazz selected the Blue Devils over scholarship offers from Cincinnati, East Carolina, Georgia State, Southern Miss, UCF and Vanderbilt. Georgia Tech and Michigan State showed interest.

This spring, he registered an electronically-timed 4.90 40-yard dash, 4.80 20-yard shuttle, 31.2-inch vertical, 33.5-foot power throw and 74.58 SPARQ at at Nike Combine.

The 6-foot-2, 228-pound prospect, who will be evaluated soon, is commitment No. 13 for Duke.
