Four-Star WR Daniel George Eyeing UNC Visit

Daniel George is attracted by Gunter Brewer's track record -- particularly recently -- with wideouts.

CLIFTON, Va. --- Four-star wide receiver Daniel George says he'll "definitely" visit North Carolina this summer.

"I would say that North Carolina has a really good chance," George said. "I would just have to go down there, really enjoy my visit, feel like it's a place I could live, play football, and grow as a player. And then, you never know what could happen."

UNC is among the 23 schools that have offered George, a robust 6-foot-2, 200-pounder from Oxon Hill (Md.).

Even before actually summer visiting the school, George says UNC is among the programs he's high on.

"I don't have any favorites -- I'm just keeping my options open," George said. "Right now, I could say it's Penn State, Virginia Tech, Maryland, North Carolina, and West Virginia that have caught my attention. Those would be the schools I talk to the most."

With UNC in particular, George communicates with Gunter Brewer, its wide receivers coach.

"Really, he is just telling me that he has the tools and I have the tools," George said. "I could help out North Carolina's team and he could help me get to my destination, which is the NFL. He has a proven track record of doing that."

Thus far, George has visited Maryland, Penn State, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia. In addition to UNC, he is looking to visit Kentucky and Vanderbilt, and make return visits to UMD, PSU, VT, and WVU.

Depending on how those visits go, George says he could make a verbal commitment as early as late July. Otherwise, he'll wait until after the season.

George has yet to schedule a date to visit UNC, but he's strongly considering Fedora's Freak Show.

"It's a really good school," George said. "Coach Brewer is a really good coach; he has told me all the receivers he has produced -- he actually has three in the [NFL] Draft right now. I know [UNC] is definitely somewhere where I could have a shot at going to the NFL."

For 11-1 Oxon Hill High, George pulled in 29 passes for 498 yards and 11 touchdowns -- nearly half of his receptions went for scores, while he averaged over 17 yards a grab.
