Although he enjoyed his first visit to North Carolina, Caleb Rozar felt that stay lacked adequate interaction with Charlton Warren, UNC’s secondary coach. Warren more than made up for it when Rozar returned to campus a couple of weekends back.
“The junior day, I was talking to him the whole visit -- the whole visit,” Rozar said. “He was just saying that he only recruits guys that can play corner and safety and nickel – he doesn’t really recruit guys that can only play one position. And that’s why he likes me.
“They want me at corner, nickel, and safety. I like defense better [than receiver], because I can make plays on my own. I can use my length well against wide receivers.”
Rozar, a 6-foot-3, 184-pounder, played throughout Dickson County (Tenn.) High’s secondary as a junior. He ended that season with 64 tackles and a dozen pass breakups. He also had 15 catches with limited reps at receiver.
Shortly after UNC offered last November, Rozar took his initial trip to UNC for its win over Miami.
Just like his November visit, Rozar’s junior day stay on Feb. 20 included him and his mother meeting individually with Larry Fedora.
“He was just talking about how he really wanted me there,” Rozar said. “He wants me to be a part of the family.”
The junior day concluded with the UNC-Miami basketball game.
“The fans are crazy,” Rozar said. “Whenever we walked on the court, the student section was cheering at us and all the fans stood up and clapped.”
The week before attending UNC’s junior day, Rozar visited Mississippi State. This past weekend, he traveled to Louisville on Friday and Alabama on Saturday.
Next week, Rozar is scheduled to visit Kentucky. He also has an April trip scheduled to Nebraska.
“There’s nobody sticking out to me right now,” Rozar said. “That’s why I’m visiting [schools]. I like all my offers.”
Six schools have offered Rozar: Kentucky, Louisville, Mississippi State, Nebraska, UNC, and UTSA.
Rozar plans to release an official favorites list during the summer time. UNC has a great chance of making the cut.
“I like how their academics are set up for athletes,” Rozar said. “Their tutoring is set up for their athletes to be successful after football.”
