I was told today by a reliable source that Jeremy Atkinson will not sign a basketball scholarship offer from Barton College but has signed to play with Louisburg College.
Atkinson, who scored 2,001 points during his Fike career, told me a week ago he was planning to sign with NCAA Division II Barton but apparently has changed his mind in favor of Louisburg of the National Junior College Athletic Association ranks. I guess he's hoping to land a Div. I scholarship in two years.
Look for Tom Ham to have a story on this as well as a story on all the changes in the Fike athletic department this summer.
