Laurinburg (N.C.) Scotland County quarterback Cameron Sexton is kicking himself this week. That's because the 6-foot-1, 171-pounder missed his unofficial visit to watch North Carolina upset Miami because of Halloween.
"What a missed opportunity," said Sexton. "I watched the whole game on TV and couldn't believe it. I was talked out of going on my visit by my friends because it was Halloween weekend and there were a lot of things going on. It was a big mistake."
Sexton, who is ranked as the No. 7 dual-threat quarterback in the country, lists UNC along with NC State, Virginia Tech, Florida State and Clemson as his final five.
"The UNC win was very good for the program," he said. "It's not that they can beat a Miami every year, but it shows they have the ability to compete and I think it makes things easier because hopefully coach Bunting will stay now."
Sexton has already taken official visits to Clemson and Florida State and wants to set an official to Virginia Tech. He doesn't need to take official visits to either North Carolina or NC State.
"I've been to each around 10 times," he said. "I wish I had gone to North Carolina this weekend though. The offense looked great and I'd love to play in an offense like that. I'm going to see them play this weekend when they host Virginia Tech."
Sexton doesn't have a leader?
"Not at this time," he said. "After my Virginia Tech visit I'll sit down and decide."
