Edmunds Has 'Great' UNC Visit

Trey Edmunds took a break from his basketball season and made a return visit to North Carolina a few weekends back for the NC State basketball game.

"[UNC] is just a school that's really interested in me and it's a great school [and] a great environment," Edmunds said.

"It was a good trip and good adventure. The atmosphere [of the basketball game] was great. There as a good turnout for the basketball game. It was a great game."

Besides the basketball game, Edmunds, a 6-foot-2, 200-pounder from Ringgold (Va.) Dan River, spent time with UNC's coaching staff and several current players.

"Basically, the coaches were telling me they're building up a good program and they have great plans for the future and they would like me to be a part of it," Edmunds said.

UNC, as well as Maryland, Virginia, and Virginia Tech, have verbally offered Edmunds a scholarship. The schools have told him he could either linebacker or running back on the collegiate level.

"They're saying they would like to see me in action in camp," Edmunds said.

Edmunds stars at both positions for Dan River. He ended his junior season with 1,324 yards and 13 touchdowns rushing, and 124 tackles on defense.

Edmunds has made visits to all four scholarship offering schools. After his basketball season concludes, he plans on resuming with unofficial visits.

Besides the late January visit, Edmunds has attended a football game (versus Virginia Tech) and camp at UNC.

Edmunds doesn't claim any favorite schools.

"I'm not in a rush," Edmunds said. "Whenever it happens, it happens. I don't have a set date for [a verbal commitment]. I'm not pin-pointing it to a certain date. Whenever I feel comfortable and my family feels comfortable that will be the day it happens."
