UNC in Speedy CB's Final Two

Victor Brown attended North Carolina's camp over the summer and set the track ablaze, while also impressing in drills.

"I did well," said Brown. "I went down there and ran a 4.39 [time in the 40-yard dash]. I did excellent in the drills. [The coaches] liked my one-on-one coverage."

The performance earned Brown, a 6-foot-1 170-pound cornerback from Washington (D.C.) Woodson, a North Carolina scholarship offer. Illinois, Syracuse, and N.C. State eventually followed suit by extending offers as well.

In early December, Brown got a closer look at UNC when he took an official visit to the campus.

"It went well -- I really liked the facilities," he said.

Brown spent a lot of time speaking with members of North Carolina's coaching staff during his stay.

"[We talked about] me coming in there and playing," said Brown. "Depending if I get stronger, I could see time early on."

Following the visit, North Carolina moved up Brown's list.

"I like them," said Brown. "I like their facilities and it's quick to get there for my family."

Brown will take his second – and possibly final – official visit to Champaign on January 12th to check out the Fighting Illini. He figures to choose between his two official visit destinations.

"I don't have a favorite, but North Carolina and Illinois are the top two, right now," said Brown. "I like both their recruiting coordinators."

Mike Locksley is recruiting Brown for the Fighting Illini, while Tommy Thigpen is his primary recruit at North Carolina.

Brown is planning to announce between the two schools shortly before signing day and will weigh education and playing time as the most important factors.
