Yeatman Checks Out Chapel Hill

For his third of four official visits, Will Yeatman traveled cross-country to Chapel Hill, where the three-star recruit checked out North Carolina.

"It went really well," said Yeatman. "I really enjoyed the campus. It was nice; the people were wonderful down there. I got to see another good football game. Unfortunately, they lost but it was still a good weekend."

Yeatman, a 6-foot-6 255-pound tight end from Poway (Calif.) Rancho Bernardo, has also officially visited Notre Dame and Nebraska. Although the visit bettered the Tar Heels' chances, Notre Dame still maintains their lead.

"I mean, it definitely made me more interested in the school," said Yeatman. "In terms of the visit, I did enjoy it a lot. I still like Notre Dame a lot as well, though, but it was a good visit."

Jay Spence, Matt Baker, and Mark Paschal hosted Yeatman, who dove deep into North Carolina's program.

"I got there Friday night and just stayed at the hotel," said Yeatman. "I woke up the next morning and ate breakfast with the team, went through the walk-through things with the team and was bussed over to the stadium. They did their Old Well walk and I got a tour of the campus at that time. I went to the sky box and ate lunch and went down to the field, locker room, and watched the whole game.

"After the game, I went to the basketball game, an exhibition against Catawba. That was cool.

"After that, I went back to my hotel, spent some time there, and went around with some players that night and the next morning I had a meeting with the tight ends coach. He showed me what they do, how they block their plays and the routes they run.

"I then met with a few other people, had lunch with the head lacrosse coach, head football coach, a couple other coaches recruiting me, and one of their hall-of-fame players. Then Coach Bunting drove me around Chapel Hill showing me the campus."

This weekend, Yeatman will take a trip to Maryland for his fourth and final official visits. He plans to announce his decision shortly after his stay in College Park.
