Quarterback Cameron Sexton has received as much attention as just about any player in North Carolina this recruiting season. Has he started to narrow things down at all?
"I'm not ready to start to talk about committing or anything like that, but there are a few schools that I think have kind of seperated themselves from the rest," he said. "I'd still like to take some visits, enjoy my senior season and just see how things go, rather than rushing things."
So who does the 6-foot-1, 171-pound dual-threat quarterback from Laurinburg (N.C.) Scotland County favor?
"Well you have to start with the two in-state schools that just about everyone from this state looks at -- UNC and NC State. Carolina has a great football tradition, and a lot of people are talking about NC State as an up-and-coming team.
"Virginia Tech is still really impressing me, because of the offense they like to run and I like their coaches. I was a little shocked back when Florida State offered and that still means a lot to me. They're up there with the top programs in the country, so throw them in there."
Are there any others he likes?
"I've said all along that Miami is a school I'd be interested in, but they haven't shown the interest in me that I'm looking for. I can't hold out hope forever, so if they aren't going to offer I'll move on. But hopefully they'll see some film of me this year and decide to offer. Clemson and West Virginia have been up there for a while too, but West Virginia might not be as high as they were.
Sexton runs the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds, but has the throwing ability of a traditional drop-back passer. He's rated the No. 12 player in North Carolina and is one of the top dual-threat quarterbacks in the country.
