'Wonderful' Visit for Wells

Keith Wells was among the bigger name recruiting targets in attendance for North Carolina's one-day camp Saturday.

"It was really good - it was wonderful, actually," said Wells.

"North Carolina, they've been one of my top six for a while. Basically, I'm not really putting those six in any kind of order, but North Carolina, they're one of the schools I'm definitely most interested in. Hopefully, I can get up there for another visit."

Wells, a 6-foot-5 210-pound defensive end from Gainesville (Ga.), lists Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia Tech, UNC, and Ohio State as his top six. Recently, he swapped out Tennessee for Auburn.

Once arriving on campus Saturday, Wells was greeted by John Blake, his primary recruiter.

"When I first got there, I spoke to Coach Blake briefly and he took me up to Coach Davis' office," said Wells. "He was just telling me personally how excited he was that I was on campus and that I was attending their camp. He just told me that they are really excited about me."

The highlight of Wells' stay was working with defensive line coach John Blake.

"It was exactly what I thought it would be," said Wells. "He taught me so many different things. The things I was doing wrong and the things I wasn't sure about, he basically cleared everything up. It was wonderful working with Coach Blake."

Outside of the camp, Wells spent a good amount of time with current Tar Heels Kentwan Balmer and Cam Thomas.

"We just hung out and basically talked about the football team and things to do on campus when you're not doing anything football related," said Wells. "Basically they were telling me everything that a student athlete needs to know about."

On Tuesday, Wells will be at Georgia's one-day camp. He then will camp at Florida and Notre Dame.

In late-June early-July, Wells is planning to eliminate one or two schools from consideration. He said he is still targeting an end of summer college decision announcement. However, when considering traveling and such, Wells acknowledges that might not be possible.

Wells has visited or has a visit scheduled with each of his top six except Auburn, Florida State, and Ohio State. He said he hopes to squeeze in trips to those three schools during the summer.
