CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The two biggest names competing in Sunday's VTO Sports Prep 100 camp at Mallard Creek High are at completely opposite ends when it comes to their recruitment.
Will Grier, the No. 43 prospect for 2014 in the 247Composite, gets coached up during Sunday's VTO Sports Prep 100.
Will Grier has settled on a school.
Trevion Thompson hasn't even narrowed his list of possible choices.
On Sunday, Grier, a standout at Davidson Day (N.C.) and the No. 2 pro-style quarterback in the 247Composite, committed to Florida in December. The 6-feet-3, 180-pounder, who won QB MVP honors at the event, recently picked up an offer from Auburn but maintained he is "very comfortable" with the Gators.
"I don't think I would have made [a commitment] unless I knew 100 percent that's where I need to be," Grier said.
On the flip side, the 6-feet-2, 177-pound Thompson, a 2014 prospect at Durham (N.C.) Hillside that also had an extremely solid showing in camp, appears to be a long way from picking a team.
Thompson, who claims no leader, is the No. 6 receiver in the 247Composite and No. 57 overall recruit.
Asked who was recruiting him hardest, he replied, "Clemson and North Carolina."
According to Thompson, those two schools definitely are factors, but he didn't give away much else.
Four-star receiver Trevion Thompson lived up to his billing Sunday.
Thompson recently visited the Tar Heels, who are only 15 minutes from where he lives, and plans to return sometime soon.
Both the Tar Heels and Tigers have said early playing time is likely. Their offenses are appealing, Thompson added.
What's next for Thompson regarding college visits?
"We have some trips planned," he said. "We're going to Notre Dame for a seven on seven. I'm going to Ohio State and West Virginia. I'm going to Clemson again. And I'm going to Florida. But I'm not sure when."
Grier is hopeful Thompson's interest in the Gators rises. The two touted players connected a lot during one-on-ones Sunday, and got to chat a little bit during breaks in action.
"He has great hands," Grier noted.
5 STAND OUT FOR DURHAM RB
Donte Thomas-Williams, a four-star running back from Durham (N.C.) Hillside, said his current top five includes Clemson, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Notre Dame and Ohio State.
Trip McNeill is one of the top offensive linemen in the Carolinas.
He recently visited both Clemson and Georgia Tech, and had a good time during each stop. The Yellow Jackets are trying to make a push, Thomas-Williams said.
"They're starting to recruit me harder," Thomas-Williams said. "The same day we went to Clemson, we went to Georgia Tech junior day. It was pretty cool. They told me I would be a B-back if I went there. They said I wouldn't average less than a 100 yards a game. They run the ball like 90 percent of the time. For a running back, that's love."
Look for Thomas-Williams to visit Clemson again soon to check out a spring practice.
N.C. OL STILL VERY OPEN
*Offensive line MVP Trip McNeill of Mocksville (N.C.) Davie County has seven offers with Appalachian State being the most recent. McNeill said he has no leaders at the moment.
He recently visited Duke, North Carolina and N.C. State. McNeill plans to make a return trip to Duke on Monday.
"I've been [to Duke] a fair amount," McNeill said. "I'm building a real good relationship with them. They're trying to get a bunch of big guys to come through."
According to McNeill, Appalachian State, Duke and N.C. State are recruiting him the hardest.
*Mike Stevens, one of Grier's receivers at Davidson Day, said Kentucky offered last weekend. Stevens also plays cornerback.
"I've been talking to Coach [Derrick] Ansley," Stevens said. "He's ready to get me in on a visit. He's excited about my film. He said all the coaches were fired up. I'm going to visit this spring."
*Isaac Stewart, a linebacker from Matthews (N.C.) Butler, claims offers from Charlotte, Louisville and N.C. State. Right now, the Cardinals and Wolfpack stand out. He recently visited N.C. State and said he likes its "style of defense." According to Stewart, he also is hearing some from Clemson.
*Receiver Collin Lisa of Alpharetta (Ga.) Chattahoochee claims a handful of offers. He visited Charlotte on Saturday and thinks it could be next to pull the trigger. Next week, Lisa will head to both Bowling Green and Toledo.
*Cornerback Elijah Bulger of Fayetteville (N.C.) Douglas Byrd, who won defensive back MVP honors, is still searching for offer No. 1. He said N.C. State and South Carolina are showing interest. Bulger will visit the Wolfpack on March 23.
*Tyler Powell, a 6-feet-3, 240-pound defensive end/tackle from Midlothian (Va.) Cosby, was easily among the best overall performers Sunday (he earned the DL MVP award). I felt like I did pretty well," Powell said. "I had one one-on-one where I wasn't as dominant as I wanted to be." Powell currently has offers from Old Dominion, Temple and William & Mary. Maryland is another program from which he has been hearing.
