Winston-Salem (N.C.) Mount Tabor vs. High Point (N.C.) Central
On Friday night, Mount Tabor went on the road and won a hard-fought first road playoff game against High Point Central 15-12. Mount Tabor tight end Lucas Wilson played well. Wilson, the top tight end in the state, is not flashy, but very effective. He showed his versatility lining up at wide receiver on several plays. Wilson runs good routes and has soft hands. The 6-foot-5, 227-pound Wilson will need to add weight and get stronger. However, with his work ethic that should not be a problem when he gets to college. While Wilson said a few weeks ago that he was down to Air Force, South Florida, and Tennessee, he visited North Carolina State on Saturday. It will be interesting to see how his recruitment plays out.
High Point Central safety Germaine Pratt was very impressive. The 6-foot-3, 195-pound junior is a big hitter in the secondary. He can really run and is solid in coverage. Pratt appears to be just scratching the surface on how good he can become. He has offers from North Carolina, North Carolina State, Notre Dame, Virginia, and Wake Forest. Look for that list to grow significantly over the next several months.
