10 49ers football prospects to watch

Although their first season is still two years away, the Charlotte 49ers are already recruiting players. Here’s a list of 10 prospective 49ers -- some of whom Charlotte has already offered scholarships to, others the 49ers are interested in and others who are interested in the 49ers -- along with their schedules.

Is there not a rule that you cant talk about recruits until they sign with the school?


Alex said...

It's not against the rules for the MEDIA to discuss recruits; it's against the rules for the university or its representatives to discuss recruits. Figure out what you're talking about before you spout off.

Zac"H" Blair is at Gray with Brandon Golson, a LB that was at Louisville before transferring and rumors circulated he was going to Charlotte by big east sources.

Golson isn't at Gray. Tryng to find him (might be at another prep school in the area and confirm the Charlotte rumor).

The SoCon would be a 100% win-win for the UNC 49ers. After 50 years of floating around aimlessly with no real ID this large UNC campus could finally visualize real stability and security. Its a no brainer.

SoCon is the only way to go for all sports for the University of North Carolina Forty Niners athletic department as the 2nd oldest conference in America since 1921.

The alltime membership history of the SoCon lists like a membership of whos who in colleges and universities in the southeast and eastern coast of America and parts of other regions.
ACC SEC and Big East were birthed out of the SoCon.

8:35. You are a no brainer. We don't care about the history of the Southern Conference. That would only be of consequence should we invent a time machine and go back to join in 1952. As to a lack of identity, you aren't helping by referring to UNC 49ers. Cut that crap out.
