"The season is going pretty good and we are 4-2 right now, but we hoped to be undefeated at this point," said the 6-foot-3, 218-pounder. "We lost to West Davidson and Sun Valley. I pulled my hamstring, so I missed the West Davidson game and the last half of Sun Valley. But the coaches have me playing both ways with a little bit safety right now."
Playing both ways certainly seems to be something Sturdivant enjoys, and the four interceptions on the year indicate he is a natural fit on the defensive side of the ball.
Many schools have seen his potential and the recruiting process is nearing completion, with just a few weeks left until he makes a commitment.
"I'm going to Flordia this weekend and in a couple weeks I should be ready to make a commitment," Sturdivant said. "I probably will not commit on the visit, but you never know. I'm not planning on it."
Sturdivant, who is down to Florida and North Carolina, still feels like the Tar Heels are in the lead for now.
"I would still say Carolina is [my leader] because I've been there more, I like the program a lot, and I like the coaches," he said. "Their season is not going to affect my decision; they've just got to keep playing with more intensity."
Sturdivant said he plans to base his decision on how comfortable he is with the coaches and players in the program, and the trip to Florida this weekend will go a long way towards that final decision.
