Powell, who was joined by his Ahoskie (N.C.) Hertford County teammates Jenkins and Danny Dembry, also observed the Tar Heels' spring practice.
"[I liked] how they practiced and how hard they practiced and how fun the coaches are [during practice]," said Powell.
Despite the constant flow of scholarship offers – Auburn, East Carolina, Florida State, Georgia Tech, N.C. State, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and Virginia Tech -- Powell still claims the Tar Heels are the team to beat.
"I like UNC so much because it's the only school I've been to," said Powell. "Once I get to other schools and tour their campus it could change. But, right now definitely Carolina's on top."
Next week Powell will begin his tour of other schools when he unofficially visits N.C. State. He is also trying to work in an unofficial trip to Auburn in the upcoming weeks.
