While the Patriots may not have had the big-name recruits of some schools, a Pats’ trio has already accepted scholarship offers.
Courtland Carson, a 6-foot, 193-pound linebacker, will attend the Air Force Academy. He was an all-Mecklenburg County second-team defense selection.
And Elon picked up two Patriots, snagging 6-1, 180-pound defensive back Jeremy Inglesi and 5-9, 160-pound wide receiver Kierre Brown. Brown was one of the fastest players in Mecklenburg County.
This may have been Independence coach Tom Knott's best coaching job--the Patriots reached the state title game and likely won't have a single senior receiving a BCS offer.
