Watson Enjoys Visit

Aiken (S.C.) LB/DE Dekoda Watson and his family made the drive to watch North Carolina defeat Utah last Saturday. Watson has been offered a scholarship by UNC and has the Tar Heels in his top two along with Kentucky.

"I had heard it was a nice campus but it really surprised me how nice it was," Watson said. "My parents really like the stadium, especially how the pine trees were around and above the stands.

"I had a chance to visit with Coach [Andre'] Powell and Coach [John] Bunting during my visit. Coach Bunting sat with my family and me in his office and talked some about the opportunities at North Carolina. I didn't commit because I want to wait until after my high school season before I sit down and make that decision."

The Tar Heels remain in Watson's top two.

"North Carolina and Kentucky are my two offers and I like those two school the most," he said.

Watson visited Carolina on an unofficial visit and it is likely that he'll visit Chapel Hill again on an official visit as well as more trips to watch games.

"I'd like to get up there some more," he said. "I haven't got any more official or unofficial visits planned right now so we'll just take it one week at a time."
