The Mallard Creek High School [Charlotte, N.C.] junior wide receiver spoke with CUTigers shortly after wrapping up his trip to Tigertown.

"It went well. I really enjoyed it," he said earlier this week.

North further detailed what he did on the Junior Day trip.

"I went down there and I was talking with the coaching staff, I got to know them more on a personal level. They offer a lot, academically and athletically. That's what I liked about it," he said.

Danny Pearman, who recruits the Charlotte area for Clemson, spent a lot of time with North while he was on campus last Saturday.

North has plans to visit Georgia and Ohio State. Both schools have offered the 6-foot-3, 210-pound wide receiver. He visited N.C. State last week.

As of this week, 17 schools have offered.

"I have a top-five. It's Clemson, Georgia, [North] Carolina, [N.C.] State and Ohio State," North said.

There is no specific order to the schools he listed.

North ended his junior season with 36 catches for 922 yards and ten touchdowns. He also rushed 18 times for 410 yards and three scores, and returned three kickoffs for touchdowns.
