Leifheit visiting North Carolina, narrowing choices

Wilmington Hoggard High’s T.J. Leifheit, arguably the best offensive lineman in the state after Chapel Hill High’s Robert Crisp, has been quietly narrowing his college choices.

“He’s at North Carolina’s camp this week, and then he’s going to Florida in a week or so,” Hoggard coach Scott Braswell said moments ago. “He’s getting closer to narrowing it down.”

Braswell said that he believes Leifheit’s short list includes UNC, Florida, Southern Cal, Tennessee and Ohio State.

“After his Florida trip, I think he’s going to stay home and concentrate on high school football,” Braswell said. “Then he’ll take his official visits in the fall.”

Leifheit is a 6-foot-7, 320-pound offensive tackle who is on track to graduate in December. He’ll likely make a verbal commitment a month or two prior to that.
