Three Independence players are solid commits

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.

If your team has a commitment or two or three we haven't mentioned let, drop me a line at

Well so what if he does not have a BCS commitment. Those kid will do just fine were ever they go. Just cause they went to Independence does not make them D1.
