"[I went] just to look at the game and to meet [Butch Davis]. We just went up to the game and talked to the coaches."
Winfield, a 6-foot 200-pound linebacker from Winston Salem (N.C.) Carver, verbally committed to Tennessee in June over a scholarship offer from South Carolina.
"I'm still committed to Tennessee," said Winfield. "I don't know right now. I just got done playing football and I was trying to get that done and over with. I have to sit down and talk about [visits] with my parents."
If North Carolina comes through with a scholarship offer for Winfield, things could change.
"I don't really now right now [what would happen if UNC would offer]," said Winfield. "I can't really say, because I haven't really talked to them like that."
Before pledging to the Volunteers, Winfield attended the Tar Heels' June three-day individual camp. Although he didn't leave with a scholarship offer, he made a good impression on the coaching staff.
Before leaving Chapel Hill Saturday, Winfield was able to sneak in a quick conversation with Davis.
"[We talked about] nothing really," said Winfield. "We only really talked for like two minutes, because he had a lot of stuff to do. He said he wanted to talk later on during the week."
Within a week Winfield figures to have a better gauge on his recruitment.
Winfield saw his senior season end Friday with a 24-13 loss to Concord. With Winfield leading the defense, Carver posted a 13-2 record, allowed on average a touchdown a game, and recorded four shutouts. On the year, Winfield collected 80 tackles, two interceptions, and blocked a punt for a touchdown.
