UNC Hosts Ohio Wideout

Charles Brown became yet another Ohio native to officially visit North Carolina this past weekend.

"It went good," said Brown, after leaving the UNC campus on Sunday. "The coaches, they were real cool. They were pretty nice. I really liked it."

Brown's presence in Chapel Hill came as a surprise given the 5-foot-10, 180-pounder's commitment status with Bowling Green.

"I just feel like I've got to take my visits," said Brown. "I'm still committed to Bowling Green. I only took one visit, so I felt like I needed to take other visits."

In early December, Brown officially visited Bowling Green. He'll take his third and final official visit this coming weekend to Connecticut, a school that recently offered.

Former Maple Heights (Ohio) teammate Richard Quinn hosted Brown during his UNC stay.

"It was great [for Quinn to host me]," said Brown. "He knows the kind of stuff I like so it was really easy for him to show me a good time."

Brown left his UNC official visit with positive feelings towards the Tar Heels – especially knowing a former teammate is on the roster.

"I actually liked [UNC]," said Brown. "It's a nice school, nice environment, [and] nice coaches. It helps [that Quinn is there], because I know he likes it down there, so it's a nice place to be."

North Carolina has yet to extend Brown a scholarship offer.

"They said since they're new coaches they don't really know the people that were offered from the old coaches, so they got to see how many [offers] they have left," said Brown. "They said [they're going to let me know the offer status] probably by the end of this week."

If UNC offers, Brown isn't sure how that would effect his recruitment.

"I'll just have to see," said Brown. "I'll have to talk it over with my family. My family didn't come out here with me, so I'll have to talk it over with them when I get home."

Brown, who's being recruiting by Tommy Thigpen, says UNC hasn't zeroed in on one position for the speedy athlete, but is considering him for wide receiver, defensive back, and returner.

During his senior season, Brown starred at wide receiver where he caught 37 passes for 985 yards and 12 touchdowns. He also played cornerback and safety, and returned kicks and punts.
