McNair plans to take his first junior day this coming weekend to North Carolina.
"I wouldn't mind seeing the football facilities and a basketball game on my trip," he said. "I actually grew up a fan of North Carolina, but I'm open to anyone right now."
What does McNair like about the Tar Heels as he grew up a fan of them?
"North Carolina is just a family school," he said. "People in my family liked them and I was a basketball fan. A couple of my friends have gone there too, Donte Moss and Deunta Williams. Deunta went to White Oak and Donte and I played basketball together since sixth grade. I still talk to them when I see them."
With recruiting rising, what does McNair want in a college?
"I just want a good place where I can get a good education," he said. 'I want a good environment and a good family tradition. I would also like to stay close to home."
The Carolina prospect earned all-conference and all-area honors as a junior after posting 80 tackles and seven sacks as a junior.
