Report: Atkinson signs with Louisburg

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.

  1. This is his best bet if his ultimate goal is to play D1 basketball. He has the size, strength, and athletic ability, but needs work on his lateral speed and ball control. Two years at Louisburg could help him with that. Wilson wishes him the best and who knows, in 3 years we could be watching Jeremy play in the ACC Tournament. Good luck, Jeremy.
