Ohio Guard Moves Up UNC Radar

Nick Schepis camped at North Carolina this past weekend with two main goals in mind – add the Tar Heels to a lengthy list of scholarship offers and check out UNC's campus. The lineman obviously got to see a good bit of Chapel Hill, but will have to wait on the offer.

"I talked to Coach [John] Bunting during one-on-ones and he just said after the camp I'm on the top of their radar," said Schepis, from Cuyahoga Falls (Ohio) Jesuit High School. "I guess they're going on vacation now that all of the camps are done. He said I should hear from them real soon [after they come back from vacation]."

Schepis, who is being recruited for guard or center, worked out with new offensive line coach Mark Weber for most of the camp. Weber definitely took a special notice of the 6-foot-3 275-pounder.

"I feel like I did very well," said Schepis. "[Weber] said that he loved my toughness and that I'm a great technician.

"It was a great experience. [Weber] pointed out some things that are really going to help me."

The camping experience has definitely shined a better light on North Carolina for Schepis.

"I think they have a great program," said Schepis. "They play in a great conference in the ACC, and they're very competitive in it; the campus is gorgeous; they have great academics; and they just have a lot to offer."

Schepis, who has also camped at Ohio State, will camp at Northwestern and Boston College [June 28th]. He also plans to take unofficial visits to Wisconsin, Connecticut, West Virginia, and Stanford before establishing a list of favorites.

"[I don't have any favorites] at all right now," said Schepis. "I'm just taking my visits right now and getting to see the schools, but most likely by the end of July I'll narrow it down to three, four or five schools and go from there."

After taking an official visit to each of his final schools, Schepis then hopes to make a verbal commitment.

Currently, Schepis holds offers from Akron, Bowling Green, Central Michigan, Cincinnati, Connecticut, Duke, Indiana, Kentucky, Marshall, Miami (Ohio), Stanford, Wake Forest, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

As a junior at Cuyahoga Falls (Ohio) Jesuit High School, Schepis graded out at over 90 percent in blocking percentage while playing weakside tackle.
