Farmingdale (N.Y.) running back Anthony Barksdale did not make his scheduled visit to Chapel Hill this past weekend, but he said he still plans to visit North Carolina prior to making his decision within the next month.
"I don't know much about North Carolina since I have never been there," Anthony Barksdale
said on Tuesday. "I know them somewhat by reputation, but that is about it.
"I have other offers from Maryland and Michigan State, and I'd have to say that Michigan State is my favorite now."
Carolina fans hope the big 230-pound back sees something that might change his preference once he ventures south.
Barksdale is being recruited as a running back by Michigan State and a fullback by North Carolina and Maryland.
