North Carolina hosted one of the best players in the state on Saturday. Was it enough to push the Heels to the top of his list?
"The visit to Carolina was really nice," said running back George Bell. "They're still behind NC State and Michigan, but I was pretty impressed. They've had more 1,000 yard rushers than any other school in the country I think, even though it's been a while. I got the sense that I could be the feature back there and get a lot of carries. It was a tough game (a 38-13 loss to Virginia) but they've got a lot of young guys out there and are getting ready for the future."
The 5-foot-11, 225-pound running back from Fayetteville (N.C.) Jack Britt has an excellent combination of power and speed. He's known for running over smaller defensive backs in the open field, and is a versatile offensive threat. Where else will he visit in the near future?
"I'm going to Virginia Tech this coming weekend, and I'm looking forward to that. They have a great atmosphere and are ranked really high. The next week I think I'm probably going to Miami on my last official.
"I'm glad I'll have taken them early so I can focus on my season and making the decision. I'd like to be done with recruiting by the end of the month. That's what I'm shooting for."
