"Friday I got there, went and ate dinner with the coaches. Hung out with my host, Jermaine Strong, he's real cool," Guyton said. "Saturday, I woke up and ate breakfast. I toured the campus and learned about the academics. We ate dinner with the coaches again and then later on that night, I went to see a show that they have on campus with Jermaine. I really enjoyed the show."
The Heels are recruiting Guyton as a wide receiver and he got the chance to meet with one of the more prolific players at that position during his trip.
"I met their freshman WR Hakeem Nicks," he said. "UNC is recruiting me as a receiver. They have six coming back on scholarship and four walk-ons."
Guyton also talked about some potential facilities expansions that could be on the horizon for North Carolina.
