Northeastern has three more getting looks

Linebacker Jamieon Moss out of Elizabeth City (N.C.) Northeastern made his decision last week for East Carolina. However, Northeastern is home to a number of other prospects to watch for 2013 according to head coach Antonio Moore.
One of those getting a strong look is 6-foot-0, 180-pound defensive back McKenzie Etheridge.
"He's supposed to visit Old Dominion soon," he said. "William & Mary is talking to him as is Appalachian State. If he runs a good time coming up, you'll see a lot of people on him cause he is really good.
"He was all-state and MVP of the state championship game."
Moore broke down his ability.
"McKenzie is just a complete athlete," he said. "He plays cornerback and safety for us. He's a lockdown corner and can go man-to-man. He can go man on opponent's best player and had 11 interceptions as a junior. He had nine as a sophomore."
Meanwhile, Moore has a lineman to watch too in Derek Moore.
"He played last year and is 6-foot-5, 320-pounds," he said. "Over the course of this year, he's really, really gotten better. A lot of people are showing interest and he's trying to get on the scene."
As far as his ability, Moore went in-depth.
"At 6-foot-5, 320-pounds he has good feet and a real good 20-yards," he said. "I would say he needs to improve his 40 time, but he's got upside with that frame. Like all of our players, they are 3.0 or better. These are smart players."
Rounding out the group is defensive end Kenneth Melton.
"He runs track and is an athlete," he said. "He's got a bunch of I-AA's interested. He ran really well at James Madison.
"His biggest asset is his speed and strength at that size. He's so fast and strong and his legs are long. Being 6-foot-4 with his speed and a smart kid too, he's got big upside."
