Sturdivant Pushes Back Commitment Timeframe

As expected, Quan Sturdivant made an unofficial visit to North Carolina this weekend. However, the 6-foot-3, 220-pound jumbo athlete from Oakboro (N.C.) West Stanly did not verbally commit, as many had predicted.

"No, I didn't commit," said Sturdivant. "No, not really [we didn't talk about committing]."

Sturdivant arrived in Chapel Hill Saturday and watched the Tar Heels' intra-squad scrimmage.

"The defense looked real good; they had a good defense," said Sturdivant. "The offense is coming along – they got good running backs [and] the quarterbacks were looking pretty good."

Afterwards, Sturdivant spent time with his primary recruiter, Dave Brock, and linebacker coach, Tommy Thigpen.

"I just hung out with the coaches for a little while after the scrimmage," said Sturdivant. "We were just talking – nothing in particular."

Sturdivant still claims North Carolina as his leader, but will wait a little longer before pulling the trigger with a verbal commitment.

"I think I'm going to push it back, because I think I'm going to go to Florida in September," said Sturdivant. "It might be an official visit – probably, I don't know yet."

If Sturdivant's trip to Gainesville is of the official variety, it will be the only official visit he takes before making his final decision.

In the meantime, Sturdivant has his sights set on his senior football season which opens this Friday at home against Concord (N.C.) Central Cabarrus.

During his junior season, Sturdivant earned Conference Offensive Player-of-the-Year honors after completing 99-of-179 passes (55%) for 1,794 yards and 21 touchdowns and rushing 111 times for 745 yards (6.7-yard average). On defense he accumulated 12 tackles (4 solo), an interception and two pass breakups.
