Tar Heels are visited by top defenders

North Carolina had visits from two of the nation’s top defensive players Wednesday and today, according to a source close to the situation. At the school to talk with coaches, see the campus and have their questions answered were OLB Khairi Fortt and DE Alfy Hill.

Hill, a 6-foot-4, 222-pound strongside end with 4.52-second speed from West Brunswick High in Shallotte, has been close to committing to the Tar Heels for some time but still isn’t quite ready to make a final decision. A national Top 100 player, he is also considering N.C. State and a number of other schools among his 30 or so offers.

Fortt, who is 6-2½ and 221 pounds with 4.55 speed, is from Stamford (Conn.) High. He has the Tar Heels among almost 30 offers, but said recently he currently has no favorite. He also also been to Penn State, Rutgers, Auburn and Syracuse.

Is North Carolina the only school in this state who is recruting football players?

No, Appalachian State is doing pretty well at that too :)
