Waggner Working on UNC Visit

North Carolina has been in constant contact with Prentiss Waggner in an effort to schedule an official visit with the 6-foot-2, 170-pound cornerback.

"They've been just naming some days and seeing if they can get me up," Waggner said. "I haven't set anything up yet, but I will.

"I'm real interested in [UNC]. I watched the Miami game and I liked how the defense got after it."

Waggner, a product of Clinton (La.), has already taken an official trip to Minnesota, and will officially visit Tennessee this coming weekend. He's considering Florida and Mississippi for his final two official stops.

Currently lacking a leader, Waggner will use the experiences from his official visits to help make his collegiate decision.

"[I'm looking at] the atmosphere – the school atmosphere [and] the team atmosphere – how well the team plays together, and academics," Waggner said.

Early on, Chuck Pagano kept in contact with Waggner for UNC. However, it appears that Pagano has recently handed off Waggner's recruitment to Tommy Thigpen.

"I talked to Thigpen [last] about a week ago," Waggner said. "He was just talking about how nice it is up there in Chapel Hill, and they're really looking forward to getting me down there."

Earlier in the football season UNC verbally offered Waggner a scholarship. Still, he has yet to receive the official paperwork.

Waggner has, however, collected solid offers from Auburn, Louisiana Tech, Minnesota, Mississippi, and Tennessee.

UNC believes Waggner has the tools to see the field early on in his collegiate career.

"They like my size and think I can make an impact as a freshman," Waggner said.

Thus far this season, Waggner has intercepted eight passes and returned one to the end zone. Waggner also starts at wide receiver, where he has accumulated 700 receiving yards and ten receiving touchdowns.
