Kamron Summers is one of the top athletes to keep an eye on from North Carolina in the Class of 2012 and he visited both NC State and North Carolina this past Saturday.
Pack Pride caught up with the 5-11, 180-pound prospect from Lenoir (NC) West Iredell this weekend and it seems as though both trips went well.
Summers is being recruited as a defensive back by the Wolfpack, and free safety more specifically. This past fall at West Iredell he registered 60 tackles while intercepting five passes and breaking up nine others. He also helped out on offense and as a kick returner on special teams.
What did he think of what he saw in Raleigh?
"Everything was cool," he said. "It went alright. It was my third or fourth time being there. I went there for a game and I went to the last junior day they had before the bowl and I watched their practice.
"This time we had a tour of their facilities and walked around the locker room. We talked to the head coach and had position meetings."
Summers said it was good to talk with the coaches one-on-one but not too much new occurred. All he knows is the Pack is pretty interested at this point. It's tough to read too much into things beyond that.
"I'd say they have a medium-to-high interest in me," he said. "They pretty much just said the standard stuff."
How did things go down the road in Chapel Hill?
"I visited Carolina, too, and we just took a tour. It was nice, too," he said. "I've also visited Wake."
While it's too early for Summers to single out one school as sticking out above the rest he does have several in mind that have left a positive impression on him.
"I'd say I like State, Carolina, Wake Forest, Clemson, Kentucky and UCLA," Summers said.
