Sexton Turns Into Recruiter

For the first time, Laurinburg (N.C.) Scotland dual-threat quarterback Cameron Sexton made a trip to Chapel Hill as a Tar Heel. The true team player that he is, the 6-foot-2, 180-pounder approached the visit with the intent to aid the North Carolina recruiting class of 2005.

"It was different [being there as a commitment]," remarked Sexton. "But I kind of assumed the role of trying to recruit a little bit. Just talking to the guys, saying ‘Hey I'm coming here and here is why I came here.'

"I think we have a good shot at a couple of those guys. [Montario] Hardesty was one; I talked to him a bunch. It was the first time I met him, too; he's a real cool guy, I liked him a lot. I spoke to Derek [Nicholson], and met his parents.

"But, I think the main one would be [Jonathan] Hannah, still. I'm working real hard on him. I think its going real well, but you know you can really never tell. I think he wants to stay close to home. I think Carolina would be a good situation for him, because they want a good tight end badly. He's always said he wanted to play with me, now he knows where I'm playing so we'll see."

In addition to his recruiting duties, Sexton took time to enjoy his official visit.

"It went really well," explained Sexton. "It was my first visit without a game. The difference between official visits with a game and official visits when they aren't playing is that there's a lot more we can do, spend a lot more time with the coaches, and spend more time with the players."

Sexton was able to enjoy a basketball game – North Carolina versus Kentucky, but felt the majority of the visit was spent eating "every hour" and included a "big team dinner."

The Scout.com three-star prospect will continue to recruit for the Heels, but will primarily focus on getting set to graduate early on December 16th.
