Huss defensive end Devin Harrell commits to North Carolina A&T

GASTONIA, North Carolina – After setting the school record for sacks and helping the Huss football team to one of its best seasons in decades, Devin Harrell will be moving on to play football at the next level.

Harrell verbally committed to play Division I football at North Carolina A&T next season. He went on an official visit to Greensboro on Friday, Jan. 13 and shortly after made his choice to play for the Aggies. Harrell will sign his National Letter of Intent to make the decision official on Wednesday after school at the Hunter Huss High School library.


“I loved it man,” Harrell said of his impressions after the visit. “It’s a nice school, nice environment. They have a good coaching staff there that can make me a better player and person.”

As a senior this fall, Harrell finished the year with 21 sacks on his way to being named Big South Conference defensive player of the year. He and fellow senior defensive end Amari Torrence (15 sacks) dubbed themselves the “Bash Brothers” and terrorized opposing quarterbacks in the backfield all season.

That defensive line was a key piece of a historic season for the Huskies. Huss went undefeated in the Big South and the Huskies won their first conference championship since 1996. The Huskiees went on to beat Parkwood and R-S Central in the first two rounds of the playoffs before falling to eventual state champion Shelby on the road in the third round.
