North Carolina was the first school to verbally offer New Jersey athlete Brandon Napoleon, so the Tar Heels have a special place in his heart.
Napoleon, a 6-foot, 175-pound athlete from Jersey City (N.J.) St. Peter's Prep, recently visited Chapel Hill and spoke with Rivals.com about his experience.
"I actually just came back from North Carolina's junior day last week," Napoleon recalled. "It was great down there. The campus was beautiful.

"Coach (Butch) Davis is a great guy. He's very passionate about football. I loved everything about it."
Despite that high praise Napoleon said he isn't ready to name a favorite. He's still waiting to see what some other schools plan on doing.
"I just got invited to Miami's junior day but I won't be able to attend that," he said. "I might go to UConn's junior day, and possibly Maryland, West Virginia and Virginia Tech. I'd like to go to all of them."
Some schools have told Napoleon he will have the opportunity to prove himself at quarterback, but he could be moved to cornerback if that doesn't work out well.
Last fall he completed 61 of 100 passes for 950 yards. He also rushed the ball 32 times for 300 yards.
