Charlotte linebackers draw recruiting interest

Charlotte Christian’s linebacker talent doesn’t end with Durham. Both Ty Linton and Kelby Brown have also received scholarship offers from Bowl Subdivision programs. The 6-2, 200-pound Linton worked at outside linebacker and running back last season for the Knights. He made 68 tackles and 6.5 sacks on defense to earn private-school all-state honors as a junior. Linton also produced 1,200 all-purpose yards and scored 12 touchdowns. Duke, Miami (Ohio), North Carolina, Syracuse, Vanderbilt, Virginia, Wake Forest, West Virginia and Wisconsin have all offered scholarships to Linton, who had been clocked at 4.49 seconds in the 40-yard dash.
