In addition to attending North Carolina's home opener, Cave toured the football facilities, hung out with some of the players, and talked extensively with the coaching staff about next year's guard situation – the position the 6-foot-4, 340-pounder is being recruiting for.
"They have some opening at guard," said Cave. "They said I'm more than likely to see some early playing time in college. They have two seniors graduating [at guard] so they'll be an open spot next year."
The scholarship offer sparked his interest, but what Cave heard and saw during his stay in Chapel Hill has earned the Tar Heels the label of leader.
"More than likely that's probably where I'm going to go," said Cave. "That's the only school that's offered me, they've been contacting me a lot, and I just love the campus up there."
Cave isn't sure when he will make a verbal commitment, but he plans to take unofficial visits to both Duke and Virginia Tech before making a final decision.
With Cave anchoring the offensive line, Beaufort (S.C.) High School is off to a 4-1 start. In those five games, Cave has recorded 17 pancakes (or knockdown) blocks.
