UNC Builds on Lead with 2018 Four-Star Dyami Brown

With Brown contemplating a commitment, UNC is sitting pretty.

Dyami Brown's experience at North Carolina on Saturday has further built the Tar Heels' lead with the four-star athlete from the 2018 class.

"It pushes them higher," the 6-foot-1, 160-pounder from Charlotte (N.C.) West Mecklenburg said. "I just had a really good visit and liked the atmosphere."

UNC leads a pack of scholarship offering schools that includes Duke, Kentucky, Louisville, Maryland, NC State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia Tech, and Wake Forest.

Brown has entered the territory of deciding when to make a verbal commitment.

"I think I'll make [a commitment] right after the football season," Brown said. 

Between now and then, Brown will continue with his visits. Outside of returning to UNC when the Tar Heels host Virginia Tech in two weeks, he doesn't have any trips planed. But, Louisville and Virginia Tech are on his wish list. 

Two weeks ago, Brown attended the Oklahoma-Ohio State game in Norman. 

On Saturday, the highlight of Brown's visit was UNC's last-second victory over ACC rival Pittsburgh.

"I saw they were able to keep going, keep pushing, [and] just not letting [Pitt] get away with the game," Brown said. "[UNC] kept fighting for the 'W.'"

After the game, Brown was escorted into UNC's locker room.

"It was kind of a new experience, because everybody met up, position wise," Brown said. "I got to talk to a couple of players about how they felt about the game and what happened."

Prior to kickoff, Brown met with Gunter Brewer, who recruits the Queen City for UNC.

"He talked about my game from Friday night," Brown said. "And then he talked about a couple of things they were going to do in the [Pitt] game on Saturday."

Brown also sat down briefly with Larry Fedora.

"He talked about the game, too, on Friday night," Brown said. "Then he said he would like to have me up there."

Bringing up Brown's Friday night game wasn't mere small talk. Like many others, Brewer and Fedora were legitimately impressed by Brown's stat line. Brown not only pulled in seven passes for 101 yards and two scores, but he also had a 91-yard pick six.

That sort of performance is why the UNC coaches -- like most staffs -- are having a difficult time determining Brown's collegiate position. They could see him making an impact on both sides of the ball, according to Brown.
