Bone Receives First Look at UNC

Blake Bone made his first visit to North Carolina on Saturday attending UNC's Junior Day.

"Everything went pretty well besides the rain," Bone said. "It was everything I was expecting – I went up there and had a good time, checked out the facilities, and met most of the coaches."

For the majority of the day, Bone was touring the campus including seeing the dorm rooms, locker room, and football facilities. Throughout the tour, the 6-foot-4, 170-pound wide receiver from Woodruff (S.C.) was shadowed by Gunter Brewer, his primary recruiter and UNC's wide receivers coach.

"He's a pretty good guy," Bone said. "He's pretty straightforward. He says what's on his mind, which is a pretty good thing to me. He tells you what he thinks you need to work on. Their offense is pretty balanced – he said they run and pass about the same amount of time. He said when you get thrown the ball, you need to make plays. Because of the type of receiver I am, I like to hear that because it opens up opportunities for the receivers."

At one point during the visit, Brewer accompanied Bone to Larry Fedora's office, where the three, plus Bone's father and brothers, conversed.

"They just talked to me about how they were just ready to get me back on campus so we could get some one-on-one time so we could evaluate some of my plays and some of my receiving," Bone said.

As a junior, Bone caught 65 passes for 1,160 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Besides UNC's Junior Day, Bone has attended a football game at Clemson and a junior day at South Carolina. He plans to visit Kentucky and Ole Miss in early April.

Each of the five aforementioned schools has offered Bone a scholarship. Amid his college travels, Bone is not ready to name favorites.

"They're giving me an idea of where I'd like to go," Bone said. "But it hasn't really given one college an advantage over another. Right now, I'm just enjoying everything and taking everything in, learning about colleges, and studying their programs."

With that said, Saturday's visit to UNC left a positive impression on Bone.

"It's a pretty good school," Bone said. "Like a lot of other schools, they're working hard in the offseason and they're recruiting heavy to try to bring in players that can help them win championships. They were talking about how they won [the Coastal] Division last year. They said they're going to continue to do big things."
