Edmunds Returns to UNC

Tremaine Edmunds continued his habit of regularly visiting Chapel Hill when he attended North Carolina's first junior day of the recruiting cycle.

"Everything was pretty good," said the 2015 prospect. "I caught up with most of the coaches. I toured the football facilities a little more. We went to the basketball game – I enjoyed that. And I just talked to other recruits."

Among other trips to the campus, Edmunds, a 6-foot-3, 185-pounder from Ringgold (Va.) Dan River, has attended three football games in Kenan Stadium in the past two seasons.

"[During the junior day], we just used the football facility a little more," Edmunds said. "All the other times, I didn't go everywhere. But they made sure we saw all the football facilities."

In addition to facility tours and the basketball game, Edmunds sat down with Ron West, UNC's linebackers coach.

"We talked a little bit about football, but we also talked about life," Edmunds said. "We just sat down and talked about life for a while."

Edmunds isn't entirely clear on the position UNC projects him to play, though he believes it's linebacker.

This past season for Dan River, Edmunds played several different positions. Linebacker, safety, fullback, and receiver were among the positions he played. Defensively, he ended the season with 120 tackles and two interceptions.

Cincinnati, UNC, Maryland, Virginia, and Virginia Tech are the offers he is considering.

"Right now, all the schools are pretty much in the same boat," Edmunds said. "I'm still trying to narrow things down."

Edmunds's father, Ferrell, attended Maryland before embarking on a seven-year NFL career where he was a two-time Pro Bowl selection. Perhaps more influential is Edmunds's ties two Virginia Tech – oldest brother, Trey, is a sophomore tailback for the Hokies, while his other brother, Terrell, a cornerback prospect, signed with VaTech earlier this month.

"It will be nice to be around my brothers, but at the end of the day the decision will be up to me," Edmunds said. "I'm going to the school that best fits me."

Edmunds's frequent trips to UNC have left a positive impression.

"I like North Carolina," Edmunds said. "There's a good atmosphere down there. The facilities are great – everything is up-to-date. They have a new weight room, so that's nice.

"Hopefully I can get back down there this spring."

Though nothing has been scheduled, Edmunds is aiming to attend a UNC spring practice.

Outside of UNC, Edmunds has visited Virginia and Virginia Tech.
