"And then, my friend told me. And also he talked to my dad."
North Carolina joins Clemson, Florida, and N.C. State on Culliver's offers sheet.
"North Carolina is a good school – one of the best," said Culliver.
However, Culliver verbally committed to rival N.C. State in early April.
"It's was a premature commit," said Culliver. "I'm still going to keep my options open to any school -- I'm not going to stop looking at other schools just because [of my commitment to] State. I'm just going to do what's best for me and what's best for my family."
Regardless, Culliver isn't ready to de-commit, and might never do so.
"Maybe [there's a chance I might de-commit], but not really," said Culliver. "I'm going not going to do a school like that – de-commit because other schools offer me.
"When I talked to Coach [Todd] Stroud I just kind of felt like I was at home, but I said I was always going to keep my options open."
On June 3rd, Culliver is planning to unofficially visit Florida, and then three days later take a trip to Clemson. He also plans to camp at Virginia Tech and N.C. State.
Although Culliver is mostly being recruited to play safety, he possesses speed of a shutdown cornerback. During Scout.com's All-American Combine, he ran the day's best 40-yard dash time of 4.38. He then went on to impress observers during one-on-one passing drills.
As a junior, Culliver played strong safety where he totaled 127 tackles, seven sacks, and two interceptions.
