Florida Athlete Considering UNC Visit

The North Carolina coaching staff treated December like the May Evaluation Period, as they spent most of the month on the recruiting trail discovering new prospects.

Before the dead period temporarily shutdown operations, North Carolina visited Hollywood (Fla.) Chaminade-Madonna to check in with Kamar Aiken, a 6-foot-1 200-pound athlete.

"About a week before the Christmas break they came to the school," said Aiken. "They didn't say much, but they're trying to get me to come up for [an official] visit.

"They said I could play both ways. He said he would have to take my video to the head coach [to determine what position I would play]. But, from his point he said I could play either side of the ball."

Aiken isn't sure which coach dropped by his school, but the same coach contacted him earlier this week.

"He talked about setting up a visit," said Aiken. "But we didn't get anything set up yet, I'm waiting until I get back to school. He [also] said they need some help in the playmaker department."

Aiken said he will "probably" end up taking an official visit to Chapel Hill. He has already officially visited Minnesota and will take an official visit to Central Florida this weekend. In addition to UNC, Aiken is also working out a date with Florida for an official trip.

Although Aiken is looking to get the recruiting process over with, he isn't leaning in any direction.

"I'm interested in everybody," said Aiken. "I'm still open.

"I'm trying to make a decision as soon as possible, but I'm just going to take my visits. I'm looking for a place I can live for four years and some good playing time."

While starring at both receiver and safety, Aiken helped Chaminade-Madonna to a 10-2 record and a berth in the 2A State Semi-Finals.
