Hardesty considering seven

Running back Montario Hardesty has already taken one official visit to Nebraska and he seems ready to set up others. What schools is the North Carolina back looking at?
"Nebraska, Tennessee, Clemson, Virginia Tech, North Carolina, NC State and Notre Dame are the schools I like right now," said Hardesty. "It's up in the air between any of those schools."
The 6-foot-0, 190-pound back from New Bern, N.C. has led his squad to a 6-0 record and the No. 2 ranking in the state.
"I've already taken an official visit to Nebraska and I had a nice time," he said. "I don't think I know any other dates for sure yet. I should be going to Tennessee for their game against Notre Dame, and I think I'll end up going to a game at Virginia Tech and make that an official. I'd also like to go to Clemson for their game against South Carolina. But I don't think any of that is official yet."
Just about the whole state of North Carolina is abuzz after North Carolina's big and controversial win over NC State on Saturday. Did Hardesty see the game?
"No, it wasn't on for most places but I did get to see the highlights. It seemed like it was a great game. But I'm looking at both schools, so I'm not really pulling for one or the other yet. I just want to find what school is right for me, wherever that is."
