Darity: 'It was the best place for me to be'

One of North Carolina's most impressive signees today is Calvin Darity, a four-star offensive lineman from Tallahassee (Fla.) Lincoln HS. Darity talks about why he decided to become a Tar Heel ...

Following his final official visit this past weekend, the 6-3 270-pounder sat back and weighed the pros and cons of his final five schools before selecting his home for the next four to five years. Darity decided his destiny was as a Tar Heel.

"I just felt that it was the best place for me to be," Darity said. "(UNC has) a really good education. It's just somewhere that I can just be myself and grow as a person."

Darity now knows of his future residence, but is clueless of his future position as he could be molded to play any spot along the offensive line.

"I know I'm going to play offensive line," Darity said. "Probably guard or tackle they might switch me up, but I'm not terribly sure what they're going to make me do."

Another uncertainty for Darity is if he will be redshirted or not.

"I'm not sure (if I will be redshirted)," Darity said. "I haven't really talked to them about that. It all depends on how I do in practice when I get there."

Darity does plan to enroll this summer so that he can get a jump start on things and better his chances for playing time.
