Over the course of just a few weeks, the quarterback situation for North Carolina's 2005 recruiting class has gone from uncertain to very promising with the verbal commitment of Cade Thompson and the strong interest from two other quarterbacks high on the Tar Heels' recruiting board. With the aforementioned verbal, it appears UNC will be looking to only add one more quarterback.
"I'm aware of the situation, and I have talked to the coaches," stated Elizabethtown (Ky.) QB Chris Todd. "I'm just going to see what's going to happen in the next couple of weeks with a couple of schools and I think I'm just going to go on that. I'm just waiting to see what's going to happen with the quarterback situations with the schools that have already offered. I'm going to try to make a decision pretty soon based on that."
Although Todd, who claims offers from N.C. State, UNC, Wake Forest, and Cincinnati, hasn't eliminated any of his tendering schools, he admits two schools have a greater chance at landing the 6-foot-3, 190-pounder.
"If I had to pick a leader right now," remarked Todd, "I would say it probably would be between North Carolina and N.C. State.
"North Carolina they have a good school. I like the coaches down there. I like the quarterback situation; I might get to play early.
"N.C. State on the other hand, they also have some good coaches and a nice school. And they got a good offense."
Todd has been toying with the notion of taking his official visits. If nothing develops in the next month or so, he figures to map out an official visit schedule.
