Independence, Rock Hill South Pointe players commit

*Patriots safety/cornerback Jeremy Inglesi has commited to the Phoenix. Inglesi is 6-foot and 185 pounds, and his Independence position coach, Josh Kranish, thinks Elon landed a solid player.

“Jeremy has great instincts for the ball and the play and seems to get himself in great positions to make plays,” Kranish said. “He is an effort guy who runs his motor full speed.”

*South Pointe center/offensive lineman Jacob McQueen committed to Gardner-Webb Saturday. McQueen, who is a solid 6-foot-4, 260-pounds, has been playing center this season in preparation for his likely position in college.

*QUOTE OF THE WEEK: From North Iredell coach Shannon Ashley, as he described one of his players for our football database, senior LB Ben Haynes.

“He’s our leading tackler,” Ashley said. “He’s missed one play since he was a sophomore. If he gets hurt, teams will score 100 points on us.”
