Even though Raleigh (N.C.) Wakefield lost in the second round of the state playoffs, wide receiver Jordan Fieulleteau is not discouraged after a season that saw him achieve an impressive amount of personal success.
"We did pretty well," said Fieulletau. "As a team I would like to go further in the playoffs and compete for a state championship next year. I'll remember all the bonds that I have with all the seniors that are leaving. We played together through our childhood and we have a lot of good memories."
Fieulleteau has one early offer from North Carolina right now, but he is hopeful that he will receive more as he moves through his recruiting process. Duke, East Carolina, N.C. State, Rutgers, Georgia Tech, Maryland and Alabama have also shown serious interest in the 6-foot-3, 200-pound wide receiver.

"I really like North Carolina," said Fieulletau. "I haven't talked to Coach Fedora yet but he seems like a good coach and from what I've seen. He's a great offensive coach."
Fieulleteau knows that this is just the beginning of his recruiting process, but is hoping for more interest from one specific conference.
"I would like to have more looks from SEC schools but it's still early in the process," he said.
Wherever the recruiting process takes Fieulleteau, his family will play a big part in the process.
"My dad passed away when I was younger, so it's just me, my mom and my twin brother, Justin," he said. "My mom will probably be the biggest factor in my decision because we are all really close and we've stuck together through tough times. She told me wherever I choose to go she'll move there to be closer and come see my games."
Academics are also very important to Fieulleteau and he says he wants to major in journalism.
On the field, Fieulleteau finished his junior season with 86 receptions for 1,200 yards and 24 touchdowns.
