Monmouth Junction (N.J.) South Brunswick athlete Jevon Tyree holds nine scholarships at this time. The 5-foot-11, 170-pounder is just coming off an unofficial visit this past weekend and is looking ahead to official visits.
"I just came home from North Carolina, I went ot the game there," he said. "It was good. They won the game and beat Rutgers it was definitely worth it.
"It was my first time there. I don't have an offer from them and they're not as interested as other schools are in me, but we'll see what happens in the future. I can say North Carolina is definitely a nice campus and the football team seems strong. Overall I feel like the college is a positive."

From here, Tyree is looking at official visits.
"I should be taking some after my season to Wisconsin, Connecticut and Georgia Tech, whoever else I'm thinking about later on," he said. "I only have a visit set for Wisconsin, I believe that is my bye week on September 30th (Nebraska).
"I've heard Wisconsin is a nice place and I just really am looking for what school I like and the players I like. I kind of have a feel for their coaches and want to witness everything as I take an official visit."
Tyree went on about why Georgia Tech and Connecticut will land officials as well.
"You know, basically it's because I took unofficial visits there and my brother lives down near Georgia Tech, I liked the school at Connecticut when I went. I'm also considering taking officials to possibly Minnesota and Iowa as well."
So, does anyone lead?
"I'm just putting all the schools on the same level basically, I'll wait to decide until later in the year."
On the field, Tyree helped his team to a 14-7 victory in the season opener on Friday.
"I had nine carries for about 25-yards and the last touchdown, I also had one interception," he said. "They studied me well and locked me down, our running backs did a lot, but overall we had a good team.
"I can tell personally I've improved defensively. I just feel stronger and a little bit faster. I feel a lot more confident in my game, it's better."
