This past Sunday, the Tar Heels' coaching staff played host to some of the top rising seniors throughout the nation for its annual Junior Day. Josh Briscoe of Lawndale (N.C.) Burns was among the college prospects in attendance.

Briscoe had an opportunity to sit down and talk with assistant coach Andre' Powell, to get a better understanding of what Chapel Hill is all about as a school and as a football program.

"It went really well," exclaimed Briscoe. "I met with Coach Powell for about two and a half hours before the basketball game, and we talked about football and academics. Coach Powell is a really nice guy, and he's very honest."

The Tar Heels' coaching staff plans to use the 6-4, 170-pounder's speed and playmaker ability to play slot or wide receiver. A starter since his freshman year, Briscoe has compiled 117 catches for 2,391 receiving yards and 32 receiving touchdowns through his three-year career.

Briscoe lacks an offer from the Tar Heels thus far, but has offers from NC State and Duke. Along with those three schools, Tennessee and Virginia are also in the running for Briscoe's services, which could be decided as early as August.

"I will make my decision at the beginning of this season," admitted Briscoe. "However, if I get word that I made the All American Bowl Game in San Antonio, I will hold out until then."

Briscoe doesn't plan to attend any summer camps this offseason, but has three more Junior Day visits scheduled: Duke (Feb. 22nd), Tennessee (Feb. 28th) and NC State (Feb. 29th).
