"Connor did a great job kicking up there their one-day camp Saturday," says Tom Barth, Connor's father who was in attendance. "North Carolina had mentioned they would offer after they saw him in person, and they did that. I think all they wanted to do was pout him under some pressure kicking with other good kids out there."
The plan was to wait even after his leader offered to see what other schools had to offer, but with Notre Dame out of the picture, there was just one choice.
"Since Notre Dame decided they were not going to go after a kicker this year that took them out," Tom Barth said. "He has been watching UNC for a while, and it is just a perfect fit."
Barth made 16-of-18 field goals without a tee at a recent North Carolina combine.
