Craddock Commits to UNC

The first on-campus visit for Albert Craddock to any college certainly paid off as the High Point, N.C. Southwest Guilford running back and defensive end received the offer he was hoping for.

"When I visited North Carolina [this weekend for Junior Day], they gave me an offer and I committed to them this morning," said the 6-foot-3, 200-pound athlete Sunday, who projects as a linebacker in college.

"They just have such a great school, great coaches, and I fit right in. With their defense, I think it is perfect for me."

Craddock, who will attend the Combine March 26 at Duke with several teammates, admitted that he did not expect to make a decision this early in the process.

"When I went up there, that wasn't what I planned on doing," said Craddock, who already had an offer from Auburn. "I just felt that it was right for me, and now I just have to work on keeping my grades up so I can enroll next year."

As a junior, Craddock rushed for over 1,000 yards and 15 touchdowns in eight games. Southwest Guilford teammates Markus Hunter and Darrius Little are also Division I prospects.
