GT Pledge to Check Out UNC

Malcolm Munroe says he has had all of his questions and concerns answered regarding Georgia Tech's regime change. Regardless, the 6-foot-3, 205-pound linebacker has scheduled an official visit to North Carolina this weekend.

"I just want to make sure I'm making the best decision, because I know it's a very important decision," Munroe said. "I have to make the best decision for myself."

Although Munroe will have one official visit slot remaining, this weekend's trip to UNC will be his final visit.

"It's just Georgia Tech and North Carolina," Munroe said. "I'm still committed to Georgia Tech. I'm just going to check out North Carolina."

Before making his original verbal commitment to Georgia Tech back in October, Munroe took official visits to Auburn, Louisville, and Georgia Tech.

Things began to dissolve with his pledge when Chan Gailey was terminated and the future of various assistant coaches, many of whom Munroe had developed relationships with, became uncertain.

Munroe was then contacted by newly hired Yellow Jacket head coach Paul Johnson.

"It's still looking good over there," Munroe said.

Munroe's original primary recruiter at Georgia Tech, Jeep Hunter, has been let go, but linebacker coach Brian Jean-Mary will remain on Johnson's staff.

Munroe has held multiple conversations with both UNC assistants Chuck Pagano and Tommy Thigpen, but Pagano is his primary recruiter.

"[We talk about] how much they would like me to be there, how much of a good opportunity they have at linebacker because they need depth," Munroe said.

Monroe is unaware what to expect this weekend.

"I just have never been to the state of North Carolina," Munroe said. "I just want to see how it is, hear what the players have to say, and see the campus, the facilities and the town."

Munroe said plans to finalize his collegiate plans a week after his UNC official visit.
