Carrboro QB Adam Bussian to sign with Furman

Carrboro quarterback Adam Bussian has announced that he’ll sign with Furman this week.

A transfer from East Chapel Hill, Bussian started and completed two games last season for Carrboro – throwing a 30-yard touchdown pass against Northwood and a 70-yard scoring strike against Reidsville on the Jaguars’ last offensive play of the season.

Bussian was invited to a number of quarterback camps last summer, including Furman, which extended him an offer that is likely to be the Paladins’ only pick of a QB this year.

Bussian plans to make his decision official during a short ceremony at Carrboro High School at 4 p.m. Wednesday — the first day of the signing period for football National Letters of Intent.

Carrboro running back Trai Sharp, who’s been drawing offers since his sophomore year, will sign with James Madison University at the same assembly.

Chapel Hill also will hold a National Signing Day ceremony at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday for all-state lineman Logan Tisch (Clemson) and tight end Noah Layden (Campbell).

East Chapel Hill calls off outdoor winter track meet

Expecting frigid weather this weekend, East Chapel Hill has canceled its Polar Bear track meet originally scheduled for Saturday.

Temperatures are forecast to be in the 20s Saturday morning, and coaches didn’t want their athletes risking injury in such cold air, Wildcat track coach Jon Beyle said, especially with the N.C. High School Athletics Association indoor championships coming up just a week later in Winston-Salem.
