Yeargan Gets Special UNC Invite

Over the weekend, Brandon Yeargan received an email from his childhood favorite North Carolina, requesting him to call primary recruiter Dave Brock.

"I talked to Coach Brock [Monday]," said Yeargan. "I'll be up [at Chapel Hill] on Saturday to meet him and some coaches and just learn more about UNC."

Yeargan's conversation with Brock also included some information about where the 6-foot-1, 210-pounder from Charlotte might fit in at North Carolina.

"[I would fit in] either as a scholarship player or a recruited walk-on that has the chance to earn a scholarship," said Yeargan. "He is going to evaluate my senior film this weekend so we should know really soon.

"They've got about 22-25 scholarships to give and they have a bunch of guys already committed. But, there is still a chance – and a good chance – to earn a scholarship after a few years of walking on."

Because of his family's connection to UNC, Yeargan said he would definitely consider the opportunity to join the team as an invited walk-on.

"Carolina is the only school I'd consider walking on at," said Yeargan. "My dad walked on at UNC; both my parents went to UNC; I've been going to games since I was a little kid; and it's a great school."

Yeargan, who is also being recruited by Duke, Georgia Tech, Stanford, Vanderbilt, and Wake Forest, isn't exactly sure what position he's being recruited for by the Tar Heels.

"I don't really know yet, we will know after he watches some senior film on me because I've been playing both fullback and linebacker," said Yeargan. "But, my guess would be fullback."

For Charlotte (N.C.) Christian, Yeargan starts at both aforementioned positions. Thus far, Yeargan has collected 19 tackles and one catch for nine yards in two games. Brandon Yeargan Profile
