Finally, Heels offer Sexton

Another scene unfolded Saturday in one of the more interesting dramas in this year's football recruiting season, when North Carolina extended a scholarship offer to 2005 prospect Cameron Sexton, the blazing fast quarterback from Scotland County.

And as both sides said all along, it was a camp offer that came during Sexton's visit to Chapel Hill.

Sexton went on to say that any misguided feelings that were a result of the delayed offer are now locked away in the past.

"I liked the visit," Cameron Sexton told Inside Carolina via telephone from his Laurinburg home Saturday evening. "They offered. We straightened some things out, and we made sure we were all on the same page."

As a junior with the Scots, Sexton passed for 1,742 yards and 17 touchdowns, against just five interceptions. He also ran for five scores.

Sexton, 6-foot-2, 185 pounds with confirmed 4.4 speed, currently has offers from UNC, N.C. State, Duke, East Carolina, Virginia Tech, UTEP, FSU, Clemson, Northwestern, West Virginia, Syracuse and more.

But, the Tar Heels are clearly back in the mix.

"I've got a good feeling about them," Sexton said. "They have been my favorite team for a long time. Them offering was good, and we're going to put everything behind us and work forward from here. Everything is good."

Sexton said he planned to visit N.C. State next Sunday, but also said he would visit Chapel Hill again before the summer was out.

"And that is about it," he said. "After that, I'm done."

Sexton says he expects to make his commitment during his upcoming senior season.
