And Thursday, Randleman's Juval Mollette put pen to paper and signed a football scholarship with the University of North Carolina. Mollette chose the Tar Heels over his other finalists...Clemson, Ohio State, Tennessee and Virginia Tech. He had 63 catches for 1031 yards as a sophomore and 56 catches for 661 yards as a junior.

Ardrey Kell’s Mason Veal has grown into standout player

Ardrey Kell High offensive lineman Mason Veal was all-state as a junior, has committed to play college football at North Carolina and ESPN ranks him a four-star (out of five) national recruit. In North Carolina, he’s the state’s No. 16 overall college prospect. Veal has certainly evolved from an awkward seventh-grader who disliked football. “My original sport was baseball,” said Veal, now a dominating 6-foot-6, 290-pound senior left tackle. “I thought I was the next Mark McGwire." (Charlotte Observer)

2014 Fayetteville Observer's Top 50 Recruits: No. 9 Mason Veal

Veal is just what you’d expect from a guy whose father also played college football. He’s intelligent, plays with savvy, has excellent technique and knows the meaning of hard work. I especially like the way he fires fast and low out of his stance. Handles run and pass blocking equally well. Just needs to get stronger to reach his college potential. (Fayetteville Observer)

Tennessee pitches recruit Shy Tuttle with photoshopped Beyonce cover

That's a tweet from five-star defensive tackle Shy Tuttle. Bey apparently not only knows who Shy Tuttle, a high school football player, is, also, she has strong opinions about where he should go to college. Also, she's walking really, really, really close to Shy, a fact which we will not tell Jay-Z about. (SB Nation)

Weekend Football Recruit Scoreboard

North Carolina wide receiver commit Juval Mollette caught three touchdown passes on offense and intercepted another pass for a touchdown on defense, leading Randleman to a 42-21 win over Southwestern Randolph. Tar Heel running back recruit Bryce Love ran for two touchdowns and 150 yards as Wake Forest beat Panther Creek (coached by UNC football alum Sean Crocker) 23-6. Find out how UNC's other top recruits fared in this week's edition of the Weekend Football Recruit Scoreboard. (Inside Carolina)

2014 Fayetteville Observer's Top 50 Recruits: No. 10 Juval Mollette

Mollette reminds me of current UNC receiver Quinshad Davis. He’s a tall, lean receiver who knows how to use his height and body to shield defenders. Mollette has big hands and displays a nice burst of speed when he turns upfield after making the catch. He’s stronger than most receivers at the same age, which has helped him become a solid blocker downfield when needed. (Fayetteville Observer)

Tommy Hatton is 'center' of attention

Once out of high school, Tommy Hatton will be back at center next year, on scholarship to play at the University of North Carolina, as a member of one of the finest recruiting classes in the nation. Hatton said he was one of nine four-star athletes who have committed to the school in hopes of breathing further life into a rising program. Despite his inexperience at his future position, Hatton has been rated as the No. 2 center nationwide by ESPN's experts. (NorthJersey.com)

Johnson announced his decision via Twitter. Rivals.com ranks Johnson as the No. 41 cornerback in the nation and No. 59 overall player in Texas. He originally committed to the Sooners back in February and held offers from Arkansas, TCU, Texas Tech and others. (Dallas Morning News)

University Christian School, is still waiting to hear from the NCAA Clearinghouse regarding his qualifying status. Regardless, UNC’s admissions won’t clear him, according to Inside Carolina sources. Allen has been released from his UNC Letter of Intent and is free to pursue a different college. (Inside Carolina)

Improved Anthony Ratliff-Williams out to lead Butler to fourth NC 4AA championship appearance

Butler High’s senior quarterback added a few things in the offseason. Anthony Ratliff’s parents were married, and he added a name to honor them. He’s now Anthony Ratliff-Williams. He also packed on 15 pounds of muscle and now measures 6-foot-2, 205 pounds. Most of all, Ratliff-Williams has added responsibilities to his role as the face of one of the Carolinas’ top football programs. Ratliff-Williams regularly studies film of guys such as Chris Leak and Joe Cox and Marquise Williams, who will be his teammate at North Carolina next season. (Charlotte Observer)
