Edmunds a Frequent Visitor

Tremaine Edmunds has attended half of North Carolina's home games thus far and could return to Chapel Hill this Saturday when the Tar Heels host Virginia.

"Carolina is a good school," Edmunds said. "As I grew up, I looked at Carolina as one of the best schools around. When I visited Carolina for first time, I realized it had a nice campus."

Edmunds, a 6-foot-3, 185-pounder from Ringgold (Va.) Dan River, first visited UNC as a recruit for last season's victory over Virginia Tech. This season, he was in town for matchups against East Carolina and Miami.

There's a chance Edmunds could return to UNC a third time this season on Saturday.

"I'm undecided right now, but I'm thinking about going to Carolina this Saturday," Edmunds said. "I'll have to talk to my parents to see what they're doing. I'll have to get my transportation right."

Prior to attending the UNC-East Carolina game, Edmunds was presented with a scholarship offer.

"I was signing in and getting my tickets for the game and Coach [Randy] Jordan came down to see me," Edmunds said. "I could tell he was excited. He told me ‘I have some good news for you.' I was wondering what he was talking about. And then he offered me. And then the linebackers coach, [Ron West], came over to talk to me. And then they brought me to Coach [Larry] Fedora's office. I was excited."

In total, six schools have offered Edmunds – Clemson, Cincinnati, Maryland, Virginia, and Virginia Tech round out the other five.

According to Edmunds, UNC projects him to play the Will linebacker within its 4-2-5 defense.

"They told me they want to move me around," Edmunds said. "I know one game they told me to look at No. 9, [Travis Hughes], during the game. They told me they were going to use me like they were using him."

For Dan River, Edmunds has played fullback, receiver, inside linebacker, outside linebacker, and safety. Defensively, he has accumulated 93 tackles on the season.

Besides UNC, Edmunds has visited both Virginia and Virginia Tech. His travels have yet to yield a leader or a group of favorites.

"They're all there right together," Edmunds said. "I don't have one school over the other right now. As I continue to visit these schools, hopefully one will start sticking out over the others."

Edmunds has two older brothers and both are either playing for or committed to Virginia Tech. Trey is a red-shirt freshman running back for the Hokies, while Terrell has pledged to the school.

"For the most part, it really doesn't matter, because the decision is going to be my choice," Edmunds said. "It's all going to fall back on me. It would be nice for all of us to play together, but like I said with this recruiting process it will on depend on me."

Neither Trey nor Terrell have attempted to push their younger brother towards Virginia Tech.

"They're just telling me good job every time I get an offer," Edmunds said. "They told me it's up to me to go wherever I feel is best for me to go."

Having watched two brothers go through the process themselves is an advantage Edmunds cherishes.

"I learned to stay humble," Edmunds said. "At first, when I saw them go through the process, I was wondering when my time was going to come. Now that my time has come, I'm just taking the steps that they did."
