Beilinson Makes First UNC Trip

Dan Beilinson made his first visit to North Carolina on Saturday.

"It went pretty well," the 6-foot-5, 230-pound tight end from Morrisville (N.C.) Panther Creek said. "… They showed me around, toured the place, [and] talked to some of the coaches."

Beilinson's visit began later than most visitors, because of his basketball practice, and ended sooner than most, because of his father's birthday celebration. However, he was on campus long enough to tour UNC's football facilities and spent time with the coaching staff.

"I saw where they work out, the training room – pretty much got to see how the football players live at UNC," Beilinson said.

UNC's offensive coordinator John Shoop, who recruits the Morrisville area, spent the most time with Beilinson.

"He talked a lot about how they use their tight ends," Beilinson said. "He told me the amount of catches they've had, the amount of yards they had, and the formations run and how they use the tight ends."

UNC's offense utilizes two types of tight ends – a ‘Y' tight end and an h-back. Beilinson was told he projects as a ‘Y.'

UNC is among the few schools seriously recruiting Beilinson that hasn't verbally offered him a scholarship.

"They talked about how I would fit in and they talked about how they use their tight ends, but they didn't talk about if they would offer or not," Beilinson said.

Beilinson has collected scholarship offers from Arizona State, Duke, NC State, and Vanderbilt, and is also receiving significant interest from Florida, Notre Dame, Oregon, South Carolina and Wake Forest.

"I haven't really had time to think about [recruiting]," Beilinson said. "As a matter of fact, just yesterday my basketball season ended. I'm probably going to start thinking about narrowing down my choices."

Beilinson also figures to work on his summer schedule very soon. He plans on attending several one-day camps, but isn't sure of any definite destinations.
