Thatch staying put

North Carolina 2004 football commitment Martel Thatch put to rest Internet rumors that he would take an official visit to Virginia this weekend.

"I thought about visiting but decided not to go," Martel Thatch told Inside Carolina Tuesday night.

Dudley High School is planning to hold a special Signing Day (Feb. 4) press conference for its three Division I signees – Thatch, Demario Pressley and Jamaal Edwards. All could wind up at Carolina, although Edwards, who has already committed to Florida State, remains a long shot at best.

"I plan on signing for North Carolina on that day," said Thatch, who has been a North Carolina commitment since July 19, 2003.

And now it appears that he will remain one until he signs his national letter of intent.
