S.C. DT Takes in UNC Junior Day

Jaylen Miller's attendance at North Carolina's Junior Day on Saturday was capped off by a meeting with Larry Fedora.

"We were talking about academics and how important it is to keep your grades up," Miller said. "We talked about UNC as a whole and what it has to offer."

Miller, a 6-foot-2, 263-pound defensive tackle from Gaffney (S.C.), and his parents saw plenty of what UNC has to offer during UNC's Junior Day, which included a tour of the facilities, lunch by the Bell Tower, and spending time with the Tar Heels coaching staff.

"I was impressed by the atmosphere because everybody was outgoing," Miller said. "Everybody felt like family. It just felt great being there."

The highlight of Miller's visit was a tour of the Loudermilk Center for Excellence, a 30,000-square foot facility which provides classrooms for teaching and tutoring. It is the largest of its kind in the ACC and fifth largest in the nation.

"The size of it was impressive," Miller said. "You had room to roam around. It was just so open."

Although he doesn't claim any favorite schools, the visit definitely left an impression on Miller.

"Before this visit, I didn't know that much about North Carolina," Miller said. "But now that I know all this about North Carolina and met Coach Deke [Adams], I feel comfortable with North Carolina.

"Throughout the entire campus you didn't feel out of place. You felt welcomed everywhere you went."

Division I-AA Alabama State and Furman are the only two schools to have offered Miller so far, but he's receiving interest from just about every school in the ACC and SEC.
