Six UT players unanimously say they'd want to play for Carolina

Tennessee gets a lot of NC and Charlotte area HS players. Coradelle Patterson is from Rock Hill and I recall him saying last year he was a Panthers fan growing up and he would love to play for us.

 

Look at their roster. All 3 QBs are from NC or the Charlotte area. They also snagged one of the top players in the state last season in Marquez North (Mallard Creek) who was a hard UNC target. They also got Maryland transfer and former Ardrey Kell RB Justus Pickett (who was a student of my Mom there too). 

 

Georgia, Tenn, and the Gators seem to have their hands deep into the NC HS football recruiting scene and if there's a top prospect here, one of these three schools will usually land him. 

 

I am a documented UNC and ECU fan - but when it comes to the SEC I will always pull for the Vols. My aunt has season tickets. I usually will pull for UGA vs most SEC teams based on the fact that they get a lot of the NC kids. Todd Gurley, who IMHO is the best RB in college FB, along with Keith Marshall are both from the triangle. 

 

Oh, and F*ck Flordia.

UT = University of Tennessee (hence 'Vols')

two of the best players in the history of the Program, Leonard Little and Heath Shuler, are both NC natives.

Arguably the best QB in the history of UF is a Charlottean. Maybe you remember the awesome LB Brandon Spikes when he played for the Gators? He is from Shelby.

 

Gators just signed an absolute stud QB from Davidson Day and they signed the #1 recruit in the state 2 years ago in DJ Humphries. Both had scholarship offers from every top program in the country. 

 

The starting safety for the Crimson Tide, Vinny Sunseri, is Sal Sunseri's boy who played a couple years of HS football in Weddington. 

 

As I stated earlier, IMHO the best RB in college football, Todd Gurley, is from the Raliegh/triangle area. 

 

 

NC is and always will be a basketball state. However, NC HS football is criminally underrated as well as Charlotte area HS.

Didn't Sunseri play at Providence?

NC HS Football is so under rated because all of our kids leave the state. If we could get kids to stay in SC and NC we'd have national title contending college football teams all the time. So much good talent leaves SC and NC.

1. Say what you will about him as a person or NFL player, there exists no debate as to who the best QB in UF history is.

 

2. I'm not sure what this post is trying to accomplish. I agree that NC has good high school recruits though.

Sal Sunseri coached here under Fox.

Gantt used to say Sunseri swore so much he had to look up stuff he said to see if it was printable.
