Milstead Reschedules Visit Again

For the third time in a row, Lamar Milstead has missed his highly anticipated unofficial visit to North Carolina. However, the Scout.com three-star offensive lineman prospect has rescheduled for this coming weekend.

"No, I didn't go, but I am making it up this weekend coming up for the combine," said Milstead. "[I didn't make it for] personal reasons, basically."

Milstead, 6-foot-5 270-pound offensive tackle, will head down to Chapel Hill with both of his parents early Friday morning and will stay until either Sunday or Monday.

Although Milstead hasn't decided if he will participate in the Tar Heels' individual rising senior camp that begins Friday, he does plan to get acquainted with the fellow recruits that will be on hand.

"[Coach Tommy Thigpen has told me] just that a lot of recruits are coming down there and they are also having one of their two combines," said Milstead. "He said if I come down there it would be a good time to meet the class that I'll be coming in with, as well."

Additionally, Milstead hopes to build on the feeling he received during his last Chapel Hill stay.

"[I'm looking] just to get a feel for the school a bit more," said Milstead. "When I was down there last time, I just got a tour. It answered a lot of questions, but I just want to get to know the school a little bit more."

With little going on with his recruitment since his last visit to Chapel Hill, Milstead still claims North Carolina as his leader. However, figuring out his high school situation will take precedence over a possible verbal commitment.

"I don't know," said Milstead. "A lot is going on with my high school, and with the colleges, I know it's going to workout itself in time. With my high school situation, I'm going to work that out first. I don't know [if I'll commit this weekend]."

Milstead, who is currently enrolled at Washington (D.C.) Coolidge, might transfer to Washington (D.C.) Ballou, where some of his teammates have already relocated.

"I don't know yet, because a lot of things have happened," said Milstead. "A lot of coaches have left because of some reasons. There's a lot behind it; it's a long story."

For the time being, Milstead is working out at Ballou, but hopes to have his high school situation squared away by the end of the week.

As a junior at Coolidge, Milstead received all-league honors. He anchored an offensive line that helped earn a 9-3 record and guided Coolidge to the Washington, D.C. championship game.
