“There’ll be some Division I talent on display,” Greenville coach David Crane said Wednesday during a press conference at Tommy’s Ham House. “There will be a number of guys there with offers.”

Boiling Springs has senior offensive lineman Noah Green, who has committed to Clemson, as well as quarterback Daniel Thompson, who has committed to Elon.

Greenville wide receiver Jalen Wilkes has offers from Elon and Charleston Southern, said Crane, whose team will oppose Mauldin.

“Mauldin plays in one of the toughest regions in the country, and Coach (Lee) Taylor’s done a great job over there,” Crane said.

Carolina coach Reuben Wright said his team is rebuilding somewhat after the graduation of Louisville recruit Zach Cannon and other skill-position players.

“We’ve got two good running backs in Tracey Scott and Quincey McCauley,” Wright said. “We’ll be looking for them to carry a little bit of the load in the running game this year.”
