FAYETTEVILLE, NC - Fayetteville State adds Hoke County High School football standout Darrius Wirt to its National Letter-of-Intent list. Wirt is a 6-3, 275lbs offensive lineman who played a vital role in turning the program around in Raeford NC.
"Darius is physically developed and mature. He is strong, powerful and athletic. He looks like he has been in college for three or four years already. He is another guy I think can come in and play early," says Head Coach Lawrence Kershaw.
Darius has been noted to be a great kid who works hard and is Hoke County's best offensive lineman. The Bucks ran the ball a lot behind Wirt's position.
Hoke County finished the 2012 season with a 10-3 overall record and lost to Jack Britt High School 17-10 in the second round of the NCHSA Class AA State Playoffs.
Fayetteville State is expecting a handful of NLI signees from the high school ranks for this up-and-coming season. Last season, the Broncos had 36 freshmen and 12 sophomores listed on its roster.
