North Carolina and Wake Forest latest offers for 2020 RB Chris Tyree

Chester (Va.) Thomas Dale running back Chris Tyree is one of the top 2020 running backs in the country and he spoke with Scout about the latest developments in his recruitment.

Although he is only a freshman, Chris Tyree is already approaching double-digit scholarship offers.

North Carolina offered on Tuesday.

"They actually offered me while I was visiting and it means a lot," said the 5-foot-10, 170-pound Tyree. "A bunch of my family are UNC fans, so it was great to go down there. It was my first time in Chapel Hill and it's a really nice place. The campus life is amazing and the facilities are really good. I also like the uniforms. Overall, the visit was great.

"My favorite part was getting to know coaches and they're really nice guys. I spent the most time with (running backs) coach (DeAndre) Smith and he talked about how he loves teaching players. He also told me I had really good vision and that he likes the way I play. It was great talking to him."

Tyree visited Wake Forest yesterday and was offered by the Demon Deacons while on campus.

"The visit was great and the offer means a lot, too," Tyree said. "I like that it's a smaller school, but it's actually a big school within itself. (Assistant) coach (Terell) Dallas was my host and showed us around the stadium and talked about campus life. 

"The things I enjoyed most were meeting all the coaches and looking at their facilities for the team. Besides coach Dallas, I spoke with (offensive line) coach (Nick) Tabacca and (running backs) coach (John) Hunter. They basically talked about how they wanted to build a relationship with me throughout my high school career. I can tell they treat their players like family."

Along with the aforementioned schools, he holds offers from Duke, Marshall, Maryland, Virginia and Virginia Tech.

In regards to upcoming visits, Tyree will visit Maryland tomorrow.

As a freshman in seven games, Tyree carries the ball 101 times for 716 yards and seven touchdowns, caught five passes for 81 yards and returned a kickoff for a score. Defensively, he had 22 tackles, an interception, 11 pass breakups and a fumble recovery.
