Linebacker Drew Davis will play his college ball close to home, signing with NC State, after switching his commitment from Minnesota in January. The 6-foot-4 and 240 pound senior registered 150 tackles his junior season.
"I'm looking forward to going and getting in there, just competing for a spot, I just want to be on the field," Davis said. "I'm looking forward to working hard and being a part of the team."
Broughton running back Chris Mangus committed to Virginia Tech over offers from Clemson, NC State, East Carolina, Memphis, Virginia, Duke, Minnesota and Wake Forest.
"Being able to play at the next level is a blessing, being healthy and having fun," Mangus said. "Just having a great four years in college and just be the best that I can be."
The 5-foot-10 and 175 pound back runs a 4.46 second 40. As a junior Mangus notched 1,173 yards and 13 rushing touchdowns.
Defensive back Jabari Crenshaw signed to play at Wingate University in North Carolina. The 5-foot-8, 165 pound senior also played on the offensive side of the ball, but had 34 solo tackles, 20 assisted and six interceptions.
"Playing football at college and in high school is a totally different thing, and I'm just ready to play at the next level," said Crenshaw.
