As a defensive back at West Charlotte High, Everett Withers always wanted to play at North Carolina.

New North Carolina defensive coordinator Everett Withers admits to being envious of former West Charlotte High teammate Darryl Johnson. Johnson walked on at North Carolina and earned a scholarship as a senior in 1985, when he started at free safety and made 34 tackles. Withers was recruited by Appalachian State, N.C. Central and East Carolina, but not North Carolina. He played defensive back and became a team captain at Appalachian State. "I truly wanted to play here (at North Carolina) in the worst way," Withers said Monday during a teleconference.
