North Carolina's Top 50 Prospects: #21-30
After attending numerous camps and combines in addition to watching film and talking to high school coaches, Pack Pride has it's breakdown of the top 50 players in the state of North Carolina. Today we look at No's 21-30. 30. LB Phillip Williamson...6-2, 210 pounds...Jordan High School The Durham area has become a hotbed of sorts for college recruits and Williamson is one of the latest to continue that trend. While he does have the size that should allow him to grow into a college linebacker, he is limited somewhat by a lack of speed. Williamson does boast above average athleticism considering his frame and was a solid pickup for UNC. 29. RBJela Duncan...5-10, 200 pounds...Mallard Creek High School Duncan is a very solid running back who impressed us during one on one drills at the Shrine Bowl invitation only workout held earlier this month. He has a nice combination of size and speed and runs hard. Duncan reports roughly a half dozen offers with Duke showing the most interest currently. NC State has not been heavily involved up to this point. 28. ATH Tysean Holloway...5-11, 180 pounds...Asheville High School Holloway is a very solid athlete that could get a look at running back or safety on the next level. As a junior he rushed for nearly 1,900 yards and 29 touchdowns. Holloway currently holds offers from UNC and Georgia Tech and says that he plans to enroll in college next January. The Wolfpack has not shown much interest through the first half of the recruiting year. 27. S Josh Sessoms...6-3, 180 pounds...Southern Nash High School Sessoms is a long, rangy athlete with a lot of physical upside. Although thin now, he should be able to pack on enough weight to emerge as a contributor in the Wolfpack secondary in a few years. He chose NC State over an offer from Virginia Tech and has remained solid for the Wolfpack. 26. LB Dahman McKinnon...6-0, 195 pounds...South View High School Virginia Tech has made a living off of landing unknown prospects and turning them into bona fide stars and McKinnon seems to fit that mold. An extremely productive player in high school, McKinnon will need to fill out but boasts the frame and speed to grow into a standout player for the Hokies. 25. TE Anthony Rook...6-3, 230 pounds...Greenville Rose High School Rook boasts a good frame and his projection at H-Back once he gets to Wake Forest in 2012 should be a good fit. While not the most athletic, Rook has a high motor and plays hard. He'll need to continue to work on his overall agility and strength but will mesh well in the Deacon's system. Wake Forest and NC State had offered as well. 24. TE Terrance Knox...6-2, 244 pounds...Concord High School Knox may be one of the more under rated prospects in the state. He has a very nice combination of size and speed and like Rook before him, should be a nice addition for UNC in the H-Back role once he gets to college. In addition to the Tar Heels, Knox also received offers from Louisville and Wake Forest. 23. WR Kevin Jones...5-11, 175 pounds...Middle Creek High School Were it not for academic questions, Jones would likely have many more offers and be rated much higher on this list. He is one of the state's quickest prospects and shows a nice blend of route running and pass catching ability. NC State reportedly offered after seeing him at camp as a junior but any firm scholarship will be contingent upon Jones qualifying. The Pack has been his leader off and on for much of the year. 22. OL Bryce Kennedy...6-2, 285 pounds...Pinecrest High School Kennedy is another sleeper of sorts that hasn't drawn the attention of some of the other higher profile linemen in the state. However, while still considered raw, Kennedy has a ton of upside both physically and in his development as an offensive lineman. Duke, NC State, UNC and South Carolina have been four of the main contenders but most consider South Carolina the team to beat. 21. WR Jody Fuller...6-0, 205 pounds...Sun Valley High School If you go by film alone, Fuller is one of the most impressive looking prospects in the state. In person, he's still a very solid player on the high school level but physically, appears that he may be better suited at another position. He does have decent speed and very good size but may just need time in a strength and conditioning program to realize his full potential. He committed to South Carolina earlier this summer.
