Travis Hughes from Kempsville High (Virginia Beach, VA.) announced his verbal commitment to play for North Carolina in December but that is not holding Miami and Maryland back from recruiting the five-star linebacker.
"Al Golden is coming to see me. He wants me to come down to Miami. I knew him from Temple. I like how he is a defensive minded coach."
According to Hughes, it is too late for him to consider a program he knows little about.
"I have so much going on. I feel like it's too late for me to go down there."
Maryland's new head coach Randy Edsall visited Hughes this week. Maryland is near and dear to Hughes' heart considering the fact that his brother is a Terp.
"Edsall is a great coach. I love Maryland. Coach Don Brown and Maryland are like family."
Despite the last-minute pitch from both Miami and Maryland, Hughes says that he is a Heel.
"I feel very comfortable with UNC. If everything goes well before signing day (in reference to NCAA investigations), I will stay with Carolina. I don't think anything will happen."
Hughes will take an unofficial visit to Chapel Hill with his younger sister and father on January 28 for the UNC / NC State basketball game.
