Football Recruiting: In-State Recruiting Heats Up For Avery Edwards


The in-state recruitment battle for Avery Edwards is getting tight and heated. North Carolina, North Carolina State, Duke, and Wake Forest all have extended offers to Edwards and all are fighting hard to recruit him.

Edwards is a three-star, 6’5″, and 220 pound tight end from Raleigh, North Carolina. Every coach of the major schools in the Triangle area of North Carolina have their eyes on him. Most importantly, in a tradition of rivalary, Larry Fedora of North Carolina and Dave Doeren of North Carolina State are going after him just as their two teams would go after each other on the gridiron.

He has received offers from all of the four in-state ACC schools, but North Carolina seems to be his favorite. He talks often and highly of the Tar Heels and Coach Fedora.

Edwards cites the enthusiasm of Chapel Hill and their coaching staff are very appealing. He also loves their fast pace of play and loves the excitement it brings to fans and the team.

He also has offers from Louisville, Pitt, and Virginia.

Edwards will return to Chapel Hill in just a few weeks to attend the North Carolina home game when the Duke Blue Devils come across town for their final game of the season.
