What do you like about each of your favorites?
Jones- NC State- "The thing I like about NC State are the fans. When I went on my visit they were crazy. The people at NC State are just great fans to play for."
UNC- "UNC is a place that I have been wanting to attend ever since I was six years old. I have been a UNC fan for a long time and still am. I'm not a fan just because of the basketball program. The football program has had great players that went to the league."
South Carolina- "USC is just a place that stays packed no matter who they are playing. The fans are always going crazy for those Gamecocks. The stadium is always shaking. All three of these three teams have great fans."
Do you have any particular favorite school?
