Four of the 10 players in North Carolina rated as four-star prospects by scout.com play at Triangle-area high schools. Three are uncommitted and the fourth, Princeton’s Johnny Frasier, is committed to Florida State, but he is taking official visits to other schools.
Frasier visited Florida last week for its game against Louisiana State and told Mike Clark of scout.com that he is more interested in the Gators now, but he still is a solid Florida State commitment. He also has made an official visit to Tennessee. Clark expects him to take official visits to LSU and Alabama and maybe to South Carolina.
“Johnny, like every other committed player, can change his mind right up until signing day,” Clark said. “Florida State knows that he is visiting other schools and Johnny knows Florida State is recruiting other running backs.
“He is making sure that he is making the best decision for him, which is what every recruited player needs to do.”
Never miss a local story.
The other three top area players – Garner running back Nyheim Hines, Durham Hillside offensive tackle Emanuel McGirt and Wake Forest running back Bryce Love – are narrowing their lists.
“I don’t know if many people in the area realize how good Johnny, Nyheim and Bryce are,” Clark said. “Johnny arguably is the best running back prospect in the country and Nyheim and Bryce are right there with him.”
It is amazing to have all three at one time.
