WR North has four offers, more coming

Offers are beginning to stack up for Charlotte (N.C.) Mallard Creek wide receiver Marquez North. The 6-foot-3, 205-pounder sits at four offers at this time.
"So far I have North Carolina, NC State, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest," he said. "I think Clemson is going to offer me soon and Florida.
"Clemson wants me to come down for a game and Florida came to see me play against West Charlotte. They really like me and the coaches are stressing really hard over me."
A few other schools including East Carolina, Florida State, Georgia and Virginia Tech are starting to move in.
"Virginia Tech actually came to see me practice earlier this week."
To date, North has visited a few schools.
"I've been getting a lot of invites and I'm probably not going on anymore until after the season," he said. "I have been to North Carolina, Clemson, Georgia and South Carolina.
"I liked Clemson's atmosphere. I liked how the fans were so involved in the game. I also like their offense."
The jumbo wideout has helped his team to a 10-0 record through the regular season.
"I'm doing well, I have either 10 or 11 touchdowns and I'm pretty sure I am close to 600-yards receiving.
"Last year I was playing quarterback, so this is my first year at wide receiver. I've put a lot of hard work in and it's paying off. I'm still working to be the best I can be though. I'm just working on my footwork still and improving on coming in and out of my cuts."
