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.
