GT Pledge Considering UNC Visit

Georgia Tech verbal commitment Malcolm Munroe may use his final allotted official visit on North Carolina.

"I'm not 100-percent sure yet, but I might be taking one [to UNC] in January," Munroe said. "I think the 11th."

A 6-foot-3, 205-pound linebacker, Munroe committed to the Yellow Jackets over two months ago. However, his recruitment has slightly opened up with the recent termination of head coach Chan Gailey.

"Right now, he's still committed to Georgia Tech," said James Bryant, Miami (Fla.) Coral Reef's head football coach. "I think he's going to wait to see what happens with who gets hired as the new coach. And he's going to make a decision from there."

Earlier this week, Munroe had a meeting with Butch Davis.

"It was a pretty positive experience for him so he decided he wanted to go on a visit to see what they had to offer," Bryant said. "You know, keep his options open."

"That was good," Munroe said of meeting with Davis. "He talked to me a lot about the program. I felt we had a good connection.

Bryant has had a few conversations with UNC coaches himself.

"They think he can come in and be an impact player for them," Bryant said. "I think they're looking for several outside linebackers and he fits the mold that they're looking for – he plays well in space, he can come off the edge. They're looking for someone with his range."

Bryant believes UNC has extended a scholarship offer.

Before making his verbal commitment, Munroe took official visits to Auburn, Georgia Tech, Louisville, and South Carolina.

"I'm still waiting to see which coaches are staying [at Georgia Tech]," Munroe said. "I know they just hired [Paul Johnson]. I'm trying to see if the guy that recruited me is staying and if the linebacker coach is staying and also some other factors. I'm still discussing stuff with my family."
