Tar Heels land official visit from all-American DT

All-American defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd has arranged an official visit to North Carolina; he’ll go to Chapel Hill on the weekend of Dec. 11. Which means that you can expect to see him engulfing a seat on the front row in the Dean Dome for the Tar Heels’ basketball game with Presbyterian on Saturday night, Dec. 12.

Floyd, of Philadelphia’s George Washington High, would be a huge (literally, he’s 6-foot-3 and 310 pounds) catch for UNC; he’s a national top 50 prospect on everyone’s list. So far, he has taken official visits to Florida, Ohio State and Southern Cal, and he’s been to Penn State unofficially.

South Carolina
is also in the running for Floyd, who has not said he has a leader at this point. And the Gamecocks remain the favorite to get his fifth and final official trip. He hopes to announce his choice at the Army All-American Game in January.
