Singleton Hoping for UNC Offer

In spite of his verbal commitment and the lack of a North Carolina offer, Kendrick Singleton will officially visit UNC this weekend.

"I just got my itinerary so I'm definitely coming down this weekend," Singleton said. "The offer is something they're going to talk about on the visit. They said that they like me – of course since they recruited me at two schools – but they are waiting on some things to happen.

"I usually don't make visits without an offer, but I guess I'm going to make an exception. The coaches [at UNC] have always been real deal with me – you know sitting down and telling me how it is. I said I wasn't going to take any more visits, but I was talking about going to North Carolina and North Carolina is a place I've always liked since I was little. Everybody knows about the Tar Heels."

The majority of UNC's current staff recruited Singleton and earned his commitment while at Southern Miss. Presently, the 6-foot-1, 190-pound wide receiver from Glen St. Mary (Fla.) Baker County speaks regularly to Tar Heel assistant coaches Blake Anderson, Walt Bell, and Dan Disch. Most recently, Singleton spoke to Disch on Sunday.

"[Disch] said that North Carolina is a place that I'll fit in and that it's a great place for me to be," Singleton said. "He said they have some receivers there, but since the coaching change they're looking for more [receivers]. So I'm just waiting on the offer."

Despite positive feelings towards UNC, Singleton is unsure of what would happen if the Tar Heels end up offering this weekend.

"It's hard to say," Singleton said. "I really don't know. But I hope they offer. I went to Middle Tennessee and fell in love with the place. This Sunday, I will have all the answers to all the questions."

After official visits to Florida International, Iowa State, Middle Tennessee, and Troy, Singleton switched his commitment from Southern Miss, a school he never even unofficially visited, to MTSU.

All four schools that Singleton officially visited, plus Boston College, offered Singleton a scholarship recently. He declined an official visit invitation to Boston College, though.

"[Boston College] is in the ACC, but it's a little bit different," Singleton said. "I don't think I would fit there."
