HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. -- Last fall, Will Eason had a great freshman season. Unfortunately, 2016…
Eason Camps at OSU
5-foot-8, 180-pound rising junior Will Eason had what could have been a season-ending injury back in August. The cornerback has since recovered nicely, and has seen his recruitment pick up. "I broke my collarbone the first game, so I missed most of the season. I came back for the State Championship game and started," said Eason. Although he only played in two games, he still managed to impress schools. "Akron offered me right after the season ended. I like everything about them. They're in Ohio, which is a lovely state. They play in the MAC, which has pretty decent competition. It's all positive," he said. The Southlake Christian (N.C.) junior says that an in-state school has also been in contact with him. "North Carolina's coach told me he wants to see a little more from me this summer. I'll get back up there again this summer and they'll see how the first three games of my junior season. I talk to Coach (Dan) Disch, he's my position coach. Our relationship is really good. Sometimes I just call him just to talk. We might not even talk about football," said Eason. The cornerback says there are several other schools picking up interest in him. "Syracuse, Tennessee and Boston College have been talking to me. BC is on me hard, they might be my next offer," he said. Over the weekend, Eason made his way up north to attend Ohio State's camp. "It went really, really well. I talked to Coach (Kerry) Coombs for the first time two days before the camp, so I didn't really have a great relationship with him beforehand. He said he was really looking forward for me to come out there. After camp, he said he liked what he saw and wants me to give him a call," said Eason. Eason has also attended camps at North Carolina, Duke, Tennessee and North Carolina State. While the cornerback still has awhile to go before making his commitment somewhere, he does know what he's looking for in a school. "I'm looking for great academics first, because that not just what I'm going to look for but also what my mom is looking for. Secondly, does that place fit me? Can I imagine myself living there for the next four years of my life," he said.
