Junior Earned Offer at Camp

Coach John Bunting commented during his Signing Day press conference about the important role summer camps played in his 2006 recruiting class. Apparently, these camps also gave the Tar Heels a jump on the 2007 class.

"They said I looked good at camp and that they wanted to offer me," said Quan Sturdivant, who attended the Tar Heels' June camp and walked away with a scholarship offer.

In addition to the Tar Heels, Sturdivant owns an offer from N.C. State, while also receiving interest from Virginia, South Carolina, Duke, Florida, Tennessee, and Clemson.

Although too early to name any favorites, Sturdivant definitely recognizes the positives in becoming a Tar Heel.

"I like the Tar Heels," said Sturdivant. "When I went last summer for the football camp, I liked it. The coaches are pretty cool. I liked it."

The only question Sturdivant's camp performance didn't answer is where to play the 6-foot-1, 205-pound athlete with 4.55-forty speed.

"I talked to Carolina about [what position I will play] and they said quarterback," said Sturdivant. "I talked to Coach [Dave] Brock. Last time I talked to him was when I went to the Arizona [basketball] game [January 28th]."

As a junior, Sturdivant completed 99-of-179 passes (55%) for 1,794 yards and 21 touchdowns, and rushed 111 times for 745 yards (6.7-yard average). After leading Oakboro (N.C.) West Stanly to an 8-5 record, Sturdivant was named the Conference's Offensive Player-of-the-Year.
