CB's favorites: Deacons, Devils, Hokies...Heels

Southern Durham CB A.J. Marshall, one of the state’s best defensive backs, has narrowed his choices to Wake Forest, Duke and Virginia Tech, with North Carolina fourth, said his coach, Adrian Jones.

“He’ll probably make a decision toward the end of July,” Jones said.

Marshall, who is a 5-foot-11½ rising senior, continues to move up recruiting lists after a junior season that included five interceptions and 15 pass breakups.

*And North Carolina, N.C. State and South Carolina have all lost out on Jakar Hamilton, a talented 6-2, 190-pound DB from Georgia Military College. Hamilton played his high school football at Strom Thurmond in Johnston, S.C.

One of the top juco players in the country, Hamilton had offers from the schools listed above among others, but has narrowed his choices to Alabama or Georgia. He said he would announce his decision July 11.

Interestingly enough, Marshall also punts for his team. Cool to see a kid willing to do whatever it takes to help his team.
