Brimfield Denies Report

Despite what a published report by a South Carolina web site might lead you to believe, William Brimfield says he is still completely firm in his verbal commitment to North Carolina and isn't looking to visit any other school outside of UNC.

"No, [I haven't opened up my recruitment]," said Brimfield. "I'm still committed to North Carolina. I don't know where all that came from. I'm not looking around."

Brimfield, a 6-foot-5 290-pound defensive tackle, admitted that in-state school South Carolina, which is much closer to his home in Neeses (S.C.), did extend a scholarship offer. However, he isn't interested.

"[South Carolina] recently offered me, but I never respond to them or anything like that," said Brimfield.

Despite its proximity, Brimfield won't be making any visits – official or unofficial – to Columbia. He has, however, scheduled his official visit with the Tar Heels for November 11th when UNC plays Georgia Tech.

Last Friday when Neeses (S.C.) Hunter-Kinard-Tyler hosted Estill (S.C.), North Carolina was in attendance.

"The coaches [from North Carolina] came down last week and they liked what they saw," said Brimfield.

Hunter-Kinard-Tyler is off to their best start in recent memory with a 4-2 record. Brimfield stars on the defensive line, where he has totaled 40 tackles, five sacks, and three fumble recoveries. He also starts at offensive tackle and is the team's field goal kicker, converting 19-of-22 PATs.
