Another D.C. LB Sets UNC Visit

Chuck Pagano stopped by Washington (D.C.) Woodson High School Thursday not only to talk to Evan Frierson, but to also spend some time with another North Carolina target – Dion Guy.

"He talked about my offer and how soon he could get me up on a visit," Guy said. "They offered me before winter break. He just came by [Thursday] to confirm it."

After officially visiting Kent State this weekend, Guy will take an official trip to UNC the weekend of January 25th. The 6-foot-3, 220-pounder has already taken an official visit to Ohio.

All three aforementioned schools have offered Guy.

Midway through his official visit schedule, Guy doesn't have a favorite but has narrowed his focus to Kent State, UNC, and Ohio.

"I'll decide after the UNC visit," Guy said. "I'm looking for somewhere that will give me the chance to start early and has good academics."

Although it was Pagano that came by his school Thursday, Guy said Tommy Thigpen has been handling much of the recruitment. Thigpen began contacting Guy in mid-December.

"He really liked my highlight tape," Guy said. "He said he likes my quickness and how I can cover the field."

Guy says Thigpen has discussed the possibility of playing middle and outside linebacker, as well as defensive end.

For Woodson, Guy has played middle linebacker. As a senior, he racked up 103 tackles, four sacks, four interceptions, and forced three fumbles.

After dropping the first three games, Woodson went on an eight-game winning streak, which landed them in the 38th Annual DCIAA Turkey Bowl, Washington D.C.'s version of a state championship. Woodson lost to Washington (D.C.) Dunbar, despite Guy's recorded safety and 8 tackles.
