    Dustin Fry's HS team finished 5-6 but will still participate in the state playoffs. Dustin has scheduled the following visits 12/1 UNC, 1/4 MD, 1/11 Clem and he will schedule a visit with South Carolina sometime following the Clemson visit (his SCAR visit had to be rescheduled due to his selection to play in the Shrine Bowl). Dustin says that he expects to decide shortly after his final visit. He has watch UNC play against ECU (unofficial visit), Clem (unofficial visit), and has seen the GaT and FSU games on TV.

    IC asked what he thought about UNC at this point. Dustin commented "North Carolina is one of my favorite teams. I would not be visiting them if I really did not like them. I talk often to my friend Chase Page. I have been to the campus and it is really nice. I really like Coach Bunting. Chase really likes Coach Bunting as well. He says going to school there is great."

    Dustin is playing DT more, which he is really enjoying. He has only been playing defense full-time for four games and has registered approximately 30 tackles and two quarterback sacks. He has previously played DT only for goal line defense.
