Matthews (N.C.) Butler already has three prospects with offers on defense. On the opposite side of the ball, the team features two wide receivers to keep an eye on in 2008 in Mickey Brewer and Jarrett Boykin.
The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Brewer is getting plenty of looks according to his head coach Mike Newsome.
"He doesn't have any offers yet, but that will happen," he stated. "A lot of schools are looking at him from South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia. I know the new staff and UNC absolutely loves him, but he doesn't have any favorites.
"The real problem is he's a very good baseball player too. He's a potential draft pick and may go that route."
What makes Brewer stand out on the field aside from his size?
"Last year he pulled in 59 receptions for 1,220 yards and 15 touchdowns for us," Newsome said. "He has unbelievable hands, catches the ball really well and has deceptive speed. He'll outrun everybody to the endzone and then he has great jumping ability too.
"In college, I could definitely see him be a great hybrid tight end. He could probably bulk up to 250-pounds and still keep his speed."
On the other side of the field, 6-foot-1, 190-pound Boykin is still a bit under the radar.
"He didn't start at the beginning of the year because of Mickey and our other guys, but once teams see his film he'll spark a lot of interest," he said. "Jarrett has great size, ability and some of the best hands I've seen. He catches the ball extremely well, runs good routes and played well in big games."
Playing in just seven games, Boykin recorded 22 receptions for 476 yards and three touchdowns.
"He has an untapped ability that we haven't even gotten to yet," he said. "On top of that, he's a great character kid for us around the school as is Mickey."
