Charlotte lands in-state LB Starnes

Linebacker Jordan Starnes (Norwood, N.C./South Stanly) has committed to play for emerging FBS program Charlotte, multiple sources report.

The 6-foot-3, 225-pound Starnes posted on Twitter: "proud to be a part of #NinerNation."

Programs such as Georgia Tech, North Carolina State and Wake Forest also recruited Starnes but, at this time, his only firm offer was from the 49ers.

Charlotte has 10 public commitments for this recruiting cycle.
