"I had Coach Powell's number so I called him and told him. He gave me Coach Bunting's number to call and tell him."
Starcevic camped at South Carolina, Virginia, William and Mary, and Wake Forest before finalizing his decision. The 6-foot-3, 225-pounder realized at the aforementioned camps that Chapel Hill was the place for him.
"Carolina was just a great fit for me," Starcevic said. "I have always been a Tar Heel fan, and I really liked the coaching staff. I also like where the program is headed."
On his way to earning All-Conference honors, Starcevic accumulated over 1,000 rushing yards and 18 rushing touchdowns on offense with 117 tackles and 12 sacks on defense. Bunting and company plan to take advantage of Starcevic's versatility by plugging him into the future holes at fullback and tight end.
