"I would have to say right now all the teams are about even. I need to just sit down and think things through."
Recently, Russell visited Chapel Hill on an official visit.
"It was a good visit," he said. "We spent to time with the coaches and players. We ate a lot. I learned about the academic support. I talked to Coach [John] Bunting and he said how much he wanted me. Coach [Gunter] Brewer told me that he wanted me to attend UNC and that I would be a big asset to the program."
Russell had planned on going on more official visits but now thinks he has seen enough.
"I had one scheduled but I don't think I will take it."
North Carolina was Russell's only official visit, but he did attend camp at Michigan State.
Russell displayed his athletic ability in a 20-13 playoff win over Mendon in the state semifinals. He accounted for all three of DePorres' touchdowns, catching two and scoring on a reverse. Russell also contributed on defense, intercepting two passes.
On a team blessed with wide receiver talent, Russell is a teammate of Notre Dame commit David Grimes.
