Va. WR Likes UNC

After being verbally offered a scholarship earlier in the spring, Todd Harrelson decided to attend North Carolina's Junior Day a month ago.

"I just wanted to get to know more about the school and meet the coaches," said Harrelson.

While on his unofficial visit, Harrelson, a 6-foot-2 185-pound wide receiver from Chesapeake (Va.) Oscar, watched a spring practice and spent time with Charlie Williams, UNC's wide receivers coach.

"He just went over some stuff on how they use their receivers," said Harrelson. "He showed us some film of their previous year."

Harrelson's stay concluded with a meeting with Kenny Browning, his primary recruiter. Browning and Harrelson continue to keep in touch through the mail and text messages.

While North Carolina is the only school Harrelson has visited this spring, He is looking to visit Virginia Tech in the coming weeks.

Over the summer, Harrelson plans to camp at Tennessee and Virginia Tech.

Outside of UNC, Harrelson has been offered by Clemson, Cincinnati, Connecticut, Maryland, N.C. State, Virginia, and Virginia Tech.

Although Harrelson neglects to name any favorites, North Carolina appears to be in a very good position.

"[The Tar Heels] are on the top of my list," said Harrelson. "I like their playing style – they have a pretty balanced team. And with the new staff they have a winning effort."

Harrelson is hoping to make a verbal commitment before his senior football season kicks off. He said his mother will play a major role in his college decision and both will be strongly considering academics and the quality of the football program.

Following his junior season, Harrelson received Second Team All-State, First Team All-Tide Water, and First Team All-District honors. He caught 72 passes for 710 yards and seven touchdowns. He also recorded 30 tackles, 44 pass breakups and seven interceptions.
