Brimfield Sets Official with UNC

With his senior season completed, William Brimfield has decided to tackle his recruitment by scheduling a couple of official visits.

"I set up an official visit to Tennessee, that's on January the 12th," said Brimfield. "And, [I set an official with] North Carolina the following week."

In addition to the Volunteers and Tar Heels, Brimfield will officially visit South Carolina and is considering N.C. State as a possible candidate for an official trip.

Two weekends ago, Brimfield was in Columbia unofficially visiting the Gamecocks.

"It was good," said Brimfield. "I had a good time. They have a good atmosphere up there."

With the exception of the Wolfpack, Brimfield owns scholarship offers from all of the aforementioned schools.

Brimfield, a 6-foot-5 290-pound defensive tackle from Neeses (S.C.) Hunter-Kinard-Tyler, originally made a verbal commitment to North Carolina during the summer. However, when UNC announced that John Bunting would not return, Brimfield opened up his recruitment.

Despite his former pledge to UNC, Brimfield doesn't claim a leader at this point in the process.

"Right now, I'm kind of open," said Brimfield. "Tennessee, North Carolina, and South Carolina are my favorites, right now."

Brimfield's senior football season ended abruptly as H-K-T failed to make the playoffs with a 6-4 record. Brimfield, who suffered a dislocated shoulder in the first quarter of the final game, ended the season with 55 tackles, ten sacks, and three forced fumbles.
