Test Scores Visit for Guyton

After receiving a solid score on his ACT, A.J. Guyton was extended a scholarship offer by North Carolina and received an invitation to officially visit the campus.

"Well, [Butch Davis and Charlie Williams] came down before the holiday break – they came to my school," said Guyton. "They were talking to me and they said they would get back at me.

"I got my test score – I scored a 22 on my ACT. They gave me a call [Sunday] after they got my score. They said they want to offer me a visit and offer me [a scholarship]."

Guyton, a 5-foot-10 180-pound athlete from Homestead (Fla.), is being recruited as a wide receiver by Williams.

"I asked him ‘Will I get a chance to play,'" said Guyton. "[Davis] said ‘Yes,' because he doesn't know the guys that are returning – just like me. All of us are new to each other, so everyone will get a fair chance to play. If I show I can do it, then I'm in."

Although Guyton knows very little of UNC, he's impressed by their hiring of Davis.

"I think [UNC is] great, you know," said Guyton. "They got a whole new coach – Butch Davis. He's from the pros so he knows what it takes to get there."

Guyton, who has already taken official visits to Rutgers and Central Florida, will officially visit Chapel Hill on January 26th. He is still determining whether he will use his last two allotted trips.

"I got two [visits] left, I'll give those to whoever shows the most interest," said Guyton. "I think my coach set me up with a visit to the University of Alabama. They've been talking to me a lot, but I don't know yet."

Heading into his North Carolina visit, Guyton doesn't have a leader among his three visiting schools and will welcome any truly interested school into his favorites list.

"I'm wide open to everyone, you know," said Guyton. "I'm not going to give that up until Signing Day."

During his senior season, Guyton "played everything." Starring at quarterback for Homestead, Guyton accumulated 2,500 all-purpose yards and 22 all-purpose touchdowns (16 passing, three rushing, one receiving, and two on punt returns.).
