'That Was Something to See'

The upset win over in-state rival N.C. State this past weekend helped the Tar Heels in more then just the ACC conference race. With blue chip prospects in attendance, including four-star jumbo athlete Everette Brown of Wilson (N.C.) Beddingfield, the overall excitement of the game in addition to the victory certainly puts North Carolina in a good light.

"That was something to see," remarked Brown. "The stadium was definitely packed. The crowd was really into it, especially towards the end when the touchdown was called back. Overall both teams played well. Carolina, I think everybody was doubting them, but they came through and proved themselves."

The 6-foot-4, 235-pounder, who admits to being torn when it came to cheering, claims the loss doesn't harm N.C. State's chances, but certainly helped the Tar Heels.

"I went back and I have been thinking about it and no it hasn't really affected [my recruitment]," stated Brown. "But it shows what kind of character Carolina's football team has by coming in being the underdog. Sometimes the upset is going to happen so it doesn't take away anything from State, but it gives Carolina some points because you need to have character to come in and upset N.C. State especially being such an underdog."

Brown, who is considering both UNC and NCSU, as well as Tennessee, Florida State, Virginia Tech, and Georgia, figures to begin to plan out his official visits shortly. However, given the amount of time he has spent in Raleigh and Chapel Hill, Brown doesn't deem it necessary to take official visits to North Carolina and N.C. State.

Heading into conference play, Beddingfield High School is 4-3. Brown has contributed to the effort both on offense and defense, catching 17 passes for 412 yards and eight touchdowns, while also recording eight sacks.
