Hunter, Family Visit UNC

Despite having a "great" time during his North Carolina official visit, Josh Hunter isn't ready to firm up his commitment and cancel future official trips to other schools.

"As of right now I am [still taking my official visits]," Hunter said. "Right now, I'm not open, but just want to make sure I'm not making the wrong choice. That's why I'm going to look at other schools."

Hunter, a 6-foot-1, 172-pound defensive back from Charlotte (N.C.) Mallard Creek, is scheduled to officially visit South Carolina and Clemson the next two weekends.

"I'm going to wait until after [I take the two official visits] and then just confirm everything," Hunter said. "I'm not really into the other schools."

Hunter says that the topic of officially visiting other schools was never discussed during his UNC official visit over the weekend.

For his visit over the weekend, Hunter was accompanied by his parents and younger sister.

"They loved it," Hunter said. "They want me to go to Carolina, so [the visit just strengthened those feelings]."

During his stay, Hunter was hosted by sophomore free safety Deunta Williams.

"It was cool," Hunter said of his time with Williams. "He's a funny dude. We became close. To spend time with a fellow DB is always nice.

"He told me how Butch Davis is changing the program – improving it – and he can't wait to get me down there."

On Saturday morning, Hunter had breakfast with Everett Withers, UNC's defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach, and then proceeded to converse with him into the afternoon.

"We just talked about life," Hunter said. "And then we talked about some of the coverages we'll be running."

Withers projects Hunter as a cornerback.

"He talked about me trying to get some playing time," Hunter said. "I'll be fighting for playing time with two other corners."

Throughout his stay, Hunter had several conversations with Butch Davis including an official visit-ending meeting in Davis' office, which Hunter's parents were present for.

"He was talking about how much they needed me and how he thinks I can come in and contribute to the team," Hunter said.
