All business for Darity

Stop number two for four-star offensive lineman Calvin Darity brings him to Chapel Hill. The Tallahassee native approached the trip the same way he plans to handle the others: learn from the trip, but don't formulate a leader.

"Everyone is still equal it just gives me another point to look upon when I'm going to visit other schools," stated the 6-3 270-pounder. "All my schools so far have a chance."

Patrick Hope, an offensive lineman himself, was Darity's player host for the weekend full of eating and touring.

"When we got there we just went out to eat," Darity said with a laugh. "The next day they showed us the football facilities and they gave us a little bit of an academic presentation. Then the last day, before we left, we got an inside view of the training facilities."

An official visit would not be complete without discussions with the coaching staff. The Tar Heels' brain trust took the opportunity to promote the school and give Darity an idea of what UNC has to offer student-athletes.

"(The coaches) were just saying that Carolina was a good school academically and athletically and that they are on the verge of being great," recounted the Lincoln High School product. "They let us know that they help athletes not only excel in athletics but excel greatly in academics."

Darity's remaining stops include visits to LSU (1/16), Tennessee (1/23), and Florida State (1/30). The O-lineman visited Nebraska back in December.
