Floyd, a 6-foot-3, 280-pound defensive tackle from Philadelphia (Pa.) Washington, plans to take his official visit to UNC for the weekend of the Nov. 7 game against Duke. He has also scheduled official visits with Florida (Sept. 18 versus Tennessee), Penn State (Oct. 16 versus Minnesota), South Carolina (Oct. 23 versus Vanderbilt), and Southern Cal (Sept. 25 versus Washington State).
The five aforementioned schools, plus Boston College, Miami, Michigan, Rutgers, and West Virginia, make up Floyd's final ten schools. He says all ten schools are on equal footing – even if they aren't receiving an official visit.
"The official visits are not going to make my decision, it's just looking deeper into a school I really like," Floyd said. "Basically, [those schools received official visits because of] their coaching staffs and what I think they can do."
Floyd doesn't claim a leader. He says UNC is like every school in his top ten – firmly in the mix.
"I wouldn't say they are in the back of my mind and I wouldn't say they are in the front," Floyd said. "But they're definitely in the mix."
