The contact period has kicked off in recruiting and that means college coaches are making their way to high schools. Fort Washington (Md.) Friendly linebacker Eteyen Edet has already had a couple coaches meet with him and has even scheduled his first official.
"North Carolina came by and I set up my first official with them the first weekend in January," he said. "They let me know they want me to come with my family and just kept it real from the start."
Edet is reported to have an offer from North Carolina State, but still hasn't seen the paperwork.

"I still don't know what the issue is," he said. "Nobody has sent me papers and that means I haven't gotten offered in my book. I'm on the market looking at every school. I'm not closing the door on anyone, Division I-AA or Division II. Whoever steps up I'll ride with."
Plenty of Division I schools are coming by.
"North Carolina came already," he said. "Syracuse is coming this week. Michigan State should be coming back soon. Minnesota has been talking a lot too along with Illinois."
Many schools appear to be waiting for Edet to finalize his college scores which should be worked out in the next couple weeks.
This season, Edet helped Friendly to a 9-1 record.
"The season is done," he said. "We didn't get into the playoffs. We had to forfeit seven games. That ruined my senior season.
"I had a pretty good year. I finished with over 100 tackles, five sacks, two interceptions, one forced fumble and two recoveries. I improved on my quickness, speed and movement from sideline to sideline. My strength increased a lot too. We have a saying that everybody gets blocked, but you don't stay blocked and that's what separates the playmakers. I was able to shed a lot of blocks this year."
