Blue Returns to Chapel Hill

Following Butch Davis' invitation, A.J. Blue traveled to Chapel Hill Saturday to attend yet another North Carolina game.

"We didn't really get a chance to talk much," Blue said of conversing with the UNC head coach. "I saw him after the game when I went upstairs. But, we didn't really talk much, because he had a lot of people to see.

"He did say it was a good time to be up there because everybody was getting a chance to play and show what they could do."

Although Blue wasn't able to talk to Davis as much as he had hoped, John Lovett, his primary recruiter, spent a great deal of time with the 6-foot-1, 205-pound athlete from Dallas (N.C.) North Gaston.

"We talked about the official visit," Blue said. "He said he'd probably schedule it after the football season, because he didn't want me to not concentrate on the bigger things that I've got to do to get there."

Despite Blue's strong feelings towards UNC, he said the possibility of having him verbally commit to the Tar Heels wasn't discussed during the visit.

The topic that was brought up often, however, was the position Blue would play, if he were to come to UNC.

"I talked to a lot of different coaches at different times and they all had their different perspectives about where I would play," Blue said. "Most of them thought I should play on offense. They just talked about how I should keep the ball in my hands [and] it would be great to have me in their offense."

Much of Blue's recruiting status with UNC hinges on his academic situation, including his SAT score. He took the test for the first time last month, but has yet to find out the score.

"[The results] were supposed to come in," Blue said. "But I guess I've got to go on the internet and look up my score. I'll do that tomorrow as soon as I get to school."

For precautionary reasons, Blue is scheduled to take the SAT again on December 1st.
