Nine N.C. players invited to U.S Army combine

We already told you that RB Jalen “Scoot” Simmons of West Charlotte High has been invited to the U.S. Army National Underclassmen’s Combine Jan. 7-9; now eight more North Carolina athletes have been selected as well.

Also picked—in alphabetical order—are Juston Burris of Raleigh Broughton; Justus Hoffman of Raleigh Millbrook; Ryan Magnum of Raleigh Leesville Road; Montese Overton of Winterville South Central; Jordan Pineda of Watauga; Jeremy Reynolds of Greensboro Dudley; John Scott of Knightdale and Jarrod Spears of Angier Harnett Central.

The combine is part of a week of events tied to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, Jan.9 at the Alamodome in San Antonio.

All I can say is the selection committee must have a lot of connections in Raleigh.
