North Carolina was the first school to verbally offer Jersey City (N.J.) St. Peter's Prep athlete Brandon Napoleon.
Since that time Rutgers and Indiana have also offered scholarships to the 6-foot, 175-pound prospect, and things have been heating up with several other schools.
The Tar Heels have made it clear that Napoleon is a high priority and the New Jersey prospect is excited about his trip to Chapel Hill this weekend.

"I'm going to one of the spring practices and another junior day at North Carolina tomorrow," Napoleon reported on Friday.
"I've been talking to coach (Allen) Mogridge a lot. I've also talked to coach (John) Shoop, the (offensive coordinator and) QB coach.
"I love the school. It's a great school in a great conference. It's still my favorite choice. The campus is great."
In spite of the fact that UNC leads don't expect Napoleon to make a decision this weekend.
"I'm not going to be making a decision while I'm down there," he said. "That's probably going to be made in September."
Napoleon added that he plans on visiting UConn and Virginia Tech in the weeks ahead.
