S.C. CB has 'Great' UNC Visit

Kaleb Chalmers, a cornerback prospect from the 2015 class, made his second visit to North Carolina on Saturday – his first for a game.

"It was a great visit," Chalmers said. "The atmosphere was nice. Everything was good – it was just the game didn't come out the way [UNC] wanted it to. They have great athletes, it was just they made a couple of mistakes that cost them the game."

UNC is one of six schools that Chalmers, a 5-foot-10, 169-pounder from Greenwood (S.C.), reports a scholarship offer from. Clemson, Duke, South Carolina, Stanford, and Tennessee round out the remainder of that list.

Chalmers says he views watching UNC lose on Saturday as a learning experience for himself.

"When I see a bad play, I put myself in that position and look at what I would have to do to make myself get better," Chalmers said.

"It doesn't really affect my recruiting, because at the end of the day it's going to come down to how I feel at each school. I want to feel comfortable wherever I go and a win or loss isn't going to affect that."

In that vein, Chalmers appreciated UNC's pregame pageantry.

"I enjoyed the [Victory] Walk," Chalmers said. "It was nice to see all the fans around the team.

"It was nice to see the paratroopers come in, because it was an appreciation for our military."

Between the Victory Walk and paratroopers delivering the game ball, Chalmers met with Ron West, his primary recruiter.

"We talked about my game Friday," Chalmers said. "We talked about my season."

Chalmers's stay also included a quick conversation with Dan Disch, UNC's cornerbacks coach.

"He just told me they were glad to have me up there," Chalmers said.

Chalmers has been busy this college football season. Every Saturday he has attended a game, starting with Clemson vs. Georgia. He continued with Georgia vs. South Carolina in Athens, South Carolina vs. Vanderbilt in Columbia, and Duke vs. Pittsburgh in Durham. If he continues his travels this weekend, he'll be at Tennessee vs. Georgia in Athens.

Lacking time to absorb his experiences, Chalmers doesn't possess a list of favorite schools.

"They're all pretty equal," Chalmers said.

Having previously participated at Fedora's Freak Show, Chalmers has a well-rounded evaluation of UNC after Saturday's game.

"It's a great school, a great coaching staff, great atmosphere," Chalmers said.
