Harrelson Names UNC His Leader

Heading into the weekend, Todd Harrelson was very interested in North Carolina. After attending UNC's camp Saturday, Harrelson has named North Carolina his leader.

"It went real good – I had a good time," said Harrelson. "It made me feel like the coaches wanted me.

"Based on academics, playing time and the program itself, North Carolina is a good fit for me. Now, North Carolina is my leader. I know more about them, and I got to meet all the coaches, and see the whole campus – I have a good feeling of them."

Harrelson, a 6-foot 180-pound wide receiver from Chesapeake (Va.) Smith, said he is also giving strong consideration to Tennessee, and Virginia Tech. His offer list includes UNC, Clemson, Maryland, N.C. State, Virginia, and Virginia Tech.

Before his senior football season kicks off, Harrelson said he hopes to make a verbal commitment.

Harrelson attended a junior day at UNC during the spring, but didn't meet each member of the Tar Heels' coaching staff at that event. On Saturday he not only met the entire staff, but also got to work with wide receiver coach Charlie Williams.

"It was real fun [working with Williams]," said Harrelson. "He was real enthusiastic."

Harrelson received constant praise from both Williams and offensive coordinator John Shoop for his standout performance at the camp.

"I did real good," said Harrelson. "There was good competition, but I felt that I was better than most of them."

In between practice sessions, Harrelson spoke one-on-one with Butch Davis.

"First he talked about academics, and then he told me his coaching background," said Harrelson. "He told me I'd be a big asset to the team if I'd come there."

Harrelson said his next camps stops will include Tennessee and Virginia.
