Lincolnton High wide receiver Sage Surratt will play his college football at Harvard.
Surratt, a 6-foot-4 senior, announced his choice on Twitter Tuesday night. A two-sport high school star in football and basketball, Surratt told the Observer last month that he had decided to play football in college and had narrowed his choices to five schools: Harvard, Indiana, North Carolina, South Carolina and Yale.
Surratt, 18, could’ve joined his brother, Chazz, at North Carolina. Chazz is a freshman quarterback with the Tar Heels. The brothers had played the past three seasons together at East Lincoln. Sage Surratt transferred to Lincolnton last summer.
Sage Surratt is the state’s all-time leader in receptions with 295. Surratt’s 4,542 career yards ranks second in state history behind Independence’s Mohamed Massaquoi (4,876). Surratt’s 59 career touchdown receptions ranks third behind Linson (60) and Massaquoi (76).
Surratt’s brother, Chazz, is the state’s all-time leader in total offense and touchdown responsibility.
