Charlotte 49ers football recruiting update

The Charlotte 49ers continue to round up prospects as national football signing day approaches Feb. 5.

The 49ers have signed a junior college transfer this week, received a commitment from a local high school player and are also bringing in a quarterback from another Football Championship Subdivision program.

Charlotte, which went 5-6 in its first season in 2013, signed tight end Richard Murphy of Butte (Calif.) Junior College. Murphy was most valuable offensive player of the California junior college championship game in December. Murphy (6-foot-3, 245 pounds) caught five passes for 143 yards and a touchdown.

The 49ers signed two transfers from Butler (Kan.) Community College in December: defensive back Branden Dozier and linebacker Nick Cook.

Charlotte got its 20th high school commitment, the most recent coming from Monroe defensive back Tre’Shun Wynn, a three-star prospect. Wynn also had offers from East Carolina, Duke and Appalachian State.

Finally, a source confirmed that freshman quarterback Garrison Duncan is transferring to Charlotte from Delaware State. Duncan, who played at East Forsyth High, didn’t play for the Hornets last season and will have to sit out 2014. He threw 1,505 yards and 17 touchdowns and rushed for 1,410 yards as a high school senior.
