Harrelson focused on five

While teammate Kerry Boykins is down to three, Chesapeake (Va.) Oscar Smith wideout Todd Harrelson is focused on five schools. The 6-foot-0, 181-pounder is currently in the middle of camp visits.

"I've cut my list to a top five and it is North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia Tech, Northern Illinois and Clemson," he said. "Basically those stick out because of playing time and I like the programs."

Are these five schools solid?

"Those aren't concrete," he said. "They are just the ones I'm most focused on from the offers I have. If something else happens and more schools come in I'll look at those too."

In the past couple weeks; Harrelson added one more scholarship from Michigan State.

As for camps, the Commonwealth prospect took his first visit last week to Chapel Hill.

"North Carolina was good, basically it was like a position camp," he said. "I had been there before for junior day. I mainly went this time to meet the coaches. I talked with Butch Davis and it was a good chance to compete with other top athletes around the area.

"Coach Davis talked to me about his coaching background and how UNC is building up into a great program. He mentioned how he's interested in Kerry and me and thought I did well in position drills. I also talked with coach Shoop and Williams. Coach Shoop discussed his experience in the NFL and how they put players into the next level."

Meanwhile, Harrelson is considering a few other camps.

"I'm going on the 16th to Virginia and after that I'm heading in the middle of the summer to one of Virginia Tech's camps and hopefully Tennessee too.

"I'm hoping I'll then be able to decide before the season starts. If that's not possible, it is ok."
