President Meets New UNC DL Coach

During his visit to North Carolina on Saturday, Gimel President was formally introduced to newly hired defensive line coach Joe Robinson.

"We went over film," President said. "He's a real good coach. I like him a lot. I learned a lot from him [Saturday]."

President, a 6-foot-3, 230-pound defensive end from Mt. Pleasant (S.C.) Wando, and his parents arrived Saturday morning, stayed the night in the area, and then headed home Sunday.

"I got there early on yesterday morning," President said. "I got to visit the whole school [and] the whole campus. I got to see the academic center and they told us about the new part they're about to add to the stadium. They talked about graduation rates."

Throughout his time on campus, President had at least a brief conversation with every member of UNC's coaching staff.

Saturday night, President was treated to the UNC-Duke basketball game.

"It was nice," President said. "It was loud – real loud. The fans were real loud and supportive."

Ten schools have offered President – Central Florida, Clemson, Maryland, UNC, NC State, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Florida, Tennessee, and Virginia Tech.

In approximately two weeks, President is hoping to establish a favorite schools list. He says he thinks UNC will make the cut.

Besides UNC, President has visited Clemson and South Carolina.

President, who has visited UNC "a bunch" of times, plans on returning to the school for a spring practice session. He is also working on upcoming trips to both Central Florida and Tennessee.
