Junior receiver Jordan Fieulleteau of Raleigh (N.C.) Wakefield had lofty expectations entering the 2011 season, but even he is surprised by his statistics. According to Fieulleteau (pronounced Fee-all-toe), he has 70 receptions for 1,000 yards and 18 touchdowns in nine games.
"I felt I'd have a pretty good season, but I never thought I'd be doing this good," Fieulleteau said.
In 2010, the 6-feet-3, 200-pounder had approximately 200 receiving yards for the entire year in a backup role.
"I didn't really play that much," Fieulleteau said. "I wasn't as strong, I wasn't as physical and I played behind a senior."
Not only has Fieulleteau matured physically, he also has the benefit of being on the same team as standout 2013 quarterback Connor Mitch, who has thrown for 3,100 yards and 38 touchdowns.
"It helps a lot; we have so much chemistry," Fieulleteau said. "We've been best friends since like the seventh or eighth grade."
Fieulleteau claims an early offer from North Carolina, which he said came during the summer. He also has interest from Duke, East Carolina, North Carolina State and Rutgers.
"UNC is recruiting me the hardest right now," Fieulleteau said. "I'm also getting a lot of mail from Duke and Rutgers. I've gone to three or four UNC games, and ECU, and I'm probably going to the N.C. State-Clemson game (Nov. 19). I'm going to Rutgers next weekend when they play West Virginia. ECU was at a game of ours. UNC told me they'd be at one of our playoffs games. I know N.C. State came to our Wake Forest game."
Right now, one program stands out.
"I like UNC a lot," Fieulleteau said. "I've been there a lot. I know the campus. I know the coaches. It also has what I want to major in - journalism."
