QB Bo Baldwin of South Aiken missed much of his junior season with a broken hand and that may have slowed his recruitment. Baldwin is receiving interest from USC, Georgia, North Carolina, Rutgers, Alabama, LSU and PItt among others. He recently attended a junior day at Georgia February 16th. “I really liked it a lot,” said Baldwin. “I got to meet with the coaches. I really like their offense and coach (Mike) Bobo. Georgia would be a good place to go.” This spring he plans to attend several spring practices including USC and North Carolina. “I may go to (USC’s) spring game,” he added. His trip to UNC will not be his first. “I like the school,” said Baldwin. “They’re similar to Georgia in that I like their offense and the new coaches.” Baldwin will participate in an Under Armour combine in Charlotte next month and says his hand doing well. He does not have any favorites.
TE RJ Tyler of Wagener-Salley picked up his first offer last Wednesday from Appalachian State. He continues to hear from USC and NC State. “I am really happy about it,” Tyler said. “They told me they looked at my film and really liked me. They want me to come up this spring and see if I like it there.” He will attend the spring game in Boone. His only visit thus far was to an NC State junior day last month. “It’s really nice there,” he said. “The facilities are really nice and I liked the coaches and all.” As for where he stands with the Wolfpack. “I don’t really know as far as an offer goes. I think they’re still evaluating me.” Tyler has no other visits planned. He did not name a leader.
OL Donnell Stanley of Latta will make his second visit to North Carolina in two weeks Saturday when he makes an unofficial visit for the Duke basketball game. Stanley visited Chapel Hill February 24th and met with head coach Larry Fedora. This past Sunday he was at USC for the Clemson baseball game. He did not meet with Gamecock offensive line coach Shawn Elliott in person but he did talk to him on the phone. “He apologized for not being at the game,” said Stanley’s mentor Chris German. “He was checking to make sure everything went well.” Stanley arrived just before gametime and left in the seventh inning, so he didn’t have a chance to talk with any of the USC baseball coaches. He plans to return to USC for a spring practice, and he plans to get up to Clemson for a spring practice as well. Stanley continues to remain open about his decision and does not have favorites.
TE Jeb Blazevich of Charlotte will visit Georgia Thursday as he begins the tour of his final six schools. He also will visit over the next few weeks Clemson, Alabama, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Ole Miss. He plans to make a decision after these visits and before June.
