Jessica Jackyra, 2010 graduate, Apex girls soccer
Jackyra, a first team all-conference selection this year, has joined Athens Drive's Rachel Collins and signed with USC-Upstate for girls soccer.
Collins and Jackyra were teammates at Triangle Futbol Club. Jackyra projects as a defender although she was one of the Cougars' top goal scorers in each of the past two years.
Max Povse, rising senior, Green Hope baseball
Povse turned some heads at the USA Baseball Tournament of Stars by striking out six of the 20 batters he faced and holding an ERA below two. With his 92-mph fastball — which had left him this past season due to injury — back, Povse's recruiting interest could pick up.
As of now, Povse said he has only offers from UNC-Greensboro and Liberty. He has also visited Appalachian State. Expect things to pick up once colleges can make phone calls in the month of July.
Anthony Colantino, rising senior, Green Hope baseball
Colantino also got invited to the Tournament of Stars. Although he wasn't give much notice or playing time, being a part of the event could bring in more teams.
Colantino, who said he had been contacted by Liberty, hit .417 this past year for the Falcons and was second on the team in fielding percentage.
Justin Manning, rising senior, Holly Springs baseball
Judging by the teams that have contacted Manning, he could be a catcher or pitcher on the next level.
As of now, UNC-Asheville is the only school to make an official offer, but like the other baseball players on the list, it could change after playing in the Tournament of Stars this past weekend.
