Scout.com four-star prospect Trinton Sturdivant, a 6-foot-6 280-pound offensive tackle from Wadesboro (N.C.) Anson County, was among the recruits to accept North Carolina's invitation.
"It was good," said Sturdivant. "It was a nice trip -- it was a good experience."
During his stay Sturdivant received an in-depth tour of the football facilities including the weight room, meeting rooms, and cafeteria.
While Sturdivant admits he was at one time a big fan of the Tar Heels, a late scholarship offer because of a coaching change is forcing North Carolina to play catch-up.
"I think [my feelings] are about the same – same that I felt before," said Sturdivant. "I don't really [have strong interest in them right now] -- it's just the way I feel. Some feeling I get, but I'm going back up there and maybe I'll feel better about them. I really did like Carolina at one point, so I want to go back up there and see if I can recapture that feeling."
With already 30-plus scholarship offers on the table, the North Carolina coaching staff has its work cut out for them with mending fences with Sturdivant.
Sturdivant didn't participate in any drills during Scout.com's All-American Combine to avoid the possibility of an injury.
