2014 OL Receives UNC Offer

When Taylor Hearn left Chapel Hill a couple of weekends back, the 2014 prospect departed with one more scholarship offer.

"When I got there, one of the coaches told me that Coach [Larry] Fedora wanted to talk to me," Hearn said. "He called me into their offense and told me that I had a scholarship there. He said that they had watched my highlight video the day before and they really liked it."

Clemson has also offered Hearn, a 6-foot-5, 305-pound offensive lineman from Williston-Elko (S.C.).

Hearn was in Chapel Hill for UNC's ACC Coastal Division match-up against Georgia Tech.

"I had been receiving a lot of mail and a lot of interest from the coaches," Hearn said. "They had been asking me to come up a good bit and we didn't have a game that Friday night, so we just went up Friday after school."

Although the game's outcome wasn't what UNC had hoped for, it left a positive impression on Hearn.

"The game was good," Hearn said. "The campus was nice – very pretty."

Besides his meeting with Fedora, Hearn had conversations with UNC assistant coaches Vic Koenning, his primary recruiter, and Chris Kapilovic, the Tar Heels' offensive line coach.

"They just wanted me to come back for more visits," Hearn said.

Hearn lists UNC along with Clemson and South Carolina as the schools that are sticking out.

"Those schools are showing me the most interest," Hearn said. "The location is big, because I really don't want to go too far away from home."

Between those three schools, Hearn says that he doesn't have a leader.

In addition to the visit to UNC, Hearn has made trips to both Clemson and South Carolina. There's a strong possibility that he'll be in attendance when those two Palmetto State schools Duke it out this Saturday in Clemson.

Hearn has started the past two seasons at offensive tackle, the position most schools are recruiting at, for Williston-Elko.
