Mollette Continues Visits

Juval Mollette continued to regularly visit North Carolina during the fall, with trips for football games against East Carolina and Duke.

"[North] Carolina didn't win in both of them, but I thought they played pretty well and they had opportunities to win," Mollette said. "They just couldn't make the right plays at the right times."

During both stays, Mollette, a 6-foot-4, 187-pound wide receiver from Randleman (N.C.), spent ample time with Gunter Brewer, UNC's wide receivers coach, and Chris Kapilvoic, Mollette's primary recruiter.

"They just tell me that they're happy that I'm up there and they still want me to come to their school," Mollette said. "They were just happy that I'm up there seeing the atmosphere."

Mollette, who also attended two games in Chapel Hill last season, has observed the modifications UNC has made to improve its game day atmosphere.

"I've noticed a lot of the changes," Mollette said. "I never really knew about the [Victory] Walk and I didn't know about the DJ until this year. I like it a lot, because the fans enjoy it. And that's what I look forward to – a big crowd and a good fan base."

Despite countless visits to Chapel Hill, Mollette says he's not favoring UNC – or any school for that matter.

"I don't really think any schools are sticking out any more," Mollette said. "I like UNC. I've visited there more, because it's so much closer. Most people are saying it's my favorite, but I don't really have a favorite."

Mollette does admit that his familiarity with the campus will only help UNC's chances with him.

Mollette's decision timeline is nearly as ambiguous.

"I was thinking about narrowing down for the summer, but I don't know," Mollette said. "But I don't think I'm going to commit until after football season or after basketball season of my senior year."

Eleven schools have offered Mollette, with Ohio State and Virginia Tech being the newest additions.

Also this football season Mollette has attended games at Clemson, NC State, South Carolina, Virginia, and Virginia Tech.

Outside of a possibly accepting Virginia Tech's junior day invitation, Mollette's recruiting travel schedule is empty.

"I definitely want to get out farther than just around here," Mollette said.

After an 8-3 regular season, Randleman was bounced from the playoffs in the first round of the NCHSAA 2AA by North Brunswick. On the season, Mollette accumulated roughly 700 yards and a dozen touchdowns in receptions.
