Offer No. 1 is in for a rising 2011 offensive tackle on the East Coast. The 6-foot-7, 265-pounder pulled the scholarship from the ACC earlier this week.
"I got an offer from North Carolina on Monday," Washington (D.C.) Ballou offensive tackle Jamar Lewter said. "I was excited about it.
"North Carolina has a good football program and I'd be interested in going there. I visited there back in October. It was good. I got to walk around the campus and see different things. They have a good academic program too."
Numerous other colleges are taking an interest in Lewter.
"Pittsburgh, Penn State, Miami, Maryland, Virginia and Rutgers have shown an interest. Miami wants me to visit next week after our championship on Thursday."
With interest picking up, does Lewter like anybody?
"I grew up a fan of Virginia Tech," he said. "I was born down there and I like everything about it. Their football team is good and it's great that they are a technical school, cause I'm interested in that."
The junior prospect went on to breakdown what he wants in a college.
"I'm not totally sure what I want to major in. I've thought about communications or business," he said. "I do know I'd like for my mom and parents to come to the games, but distance is not that big of an issue for me."
Lewter and Ballou wrap up the season on Thursday in the Turkey Bowl against H.D. Woodson.
"We're the underdog in this one and want to prove them wrong," he said. "I think I've played well this season. At first I was a tight end and then moved to tackle. I'm adjusting. I'm real fast on the line and my height is good, but I'm working on perfecting my kick slide and getting stronger."
