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."
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.
