Watters Impressed By UNC Official

This past weekend, Brian Watters used an official visit to make his first trip to North Carolina. The 6-foot-1, 185-pound wide out from Rome (Ga.) walked away extremely impressed.

"It went great man, I liked everything about the school," said Watters. "The campus is beautiful, the coaching staff was amazing."

Watters, who was hosted by Dirk Engram, received a detailed look at North Carolina's academics and a thorough tour of the campus. His hosts also made sure he was well fed.

"We ate so much," said Watters. "It seemed like every hour we were eating food, but that's good."

Heading into the visit Watters lacked a UNC scholarship offer. Although he left empty handed, he obtained a better understanding of the situation.

"I didn't get an offer while I was down there," said Watters. "They told me it was a situation that they have so many commitments – like 26. They want to offer me, so I'm kind of waiting in case a commitment drops out."

Watters does own scholarship offers from Ball State and Middle Tennessee State. He plans to officially visit Ball State on the 13th of January as well as Wake Forest on the sixth, and then make his collegiate decision.

"Within the next month I'd like to have my decision done," said Watters. "After I take my last visit, like in the middle of January [I'll decide]."

When it comes time to make a decision, Watters is hoping North Carolina is an option.

"Man, I like the school a whole lot," said Watters. "I was really impressed by what they have to show me. I probably would consider them my leader. I probably would commit [if they offered], but I would have to see what my other visits look like first."

Playing all over the field for Rome High School, which ended their season with an 11-2 record, Watters accumulated over 1,400 all-purpose yards and 20 all-purpose touchdowns.
