DT Porter on the verge of blowing up

Charlotte (N.C.) West Charlotte defensive tackle Curtis Porter may very well see his stock explode in the coming months. According to Joseph Johnson who handles his recruiting, the 6-foot-2, 334-pounder is garnering his share of interest and may of the colleges are on the verge of offering.
"He has no offers yet," Johnson said. "Give it a month and once these teams meet him in person they'll offer him. He's a character kid. Coach Fulmer at Tennessee went crazy about him and Duke is very interested too. They are holding an offer just waiting on his test scores.
"The one thing about him is that nobody has seen his tape. Virginia's coaches are talking, Notre Dame is interested, Virginia Tech and North Carolina are looking too. They all want to see his tape. He's going to camp this summer with Jheranie Boyd and I'm telling you, he'll have a few offers."
What makes Porter stick out?
"He is unbelievably freakish strong," he said. "He plays with a chip on his shoulder and will knock you out. His motor reminds you of Chris Long and he has great aggressiveness and is extremely powerful. He had a lot of pancake blocks. He was just throwing guys that are bigger than him.
"He's a good character player. He's a leader and a good student that studies hard."
Porter carries a 3.1 GPA so academics won't hold him back from any schools. Once that first offer rolls in, look for many others to follow.
