Mutcherson to Return to the Hill

T.J. Mutcherson will return to North Carolina on Oct. 10 to watch the Tar Heels take on Georgia Southern.

"I'm going to check out their campus and all that good stuff," Mutcherson said.

"I've been talking to the coaches – the coaches call me or after the games I always text them. And they've been telling me they still want me [and] they haven't forgotten about me. I said I wanted to come up for a game and they said they'd set it up for me for Oct. 10."

Mutcherson, a 5-foot-11, 190-pound cornerback from Tampa (Fla.) Freedom, attended UNC's three-day camp in June.

This upcoming visit will be "unofficial." However, during his stay Mutcherson plans to schedule an official visit with UNC for after the season.

"I just figured if I come up there after the season, I'll have more time with the coaching staff," Mutcherson said.

Mutcherson has already scheduled a postseason official visit with Rutgers for the weekend of Dec. 4.

After taking his official visits, Mutcherson is looking to make a verbal commitment – most likely in December or January.

Mutcherson has crowned UNC his leader.

"North Carolina is No. 1," Mutcherson said. "It's a great school. I've been looking at their rosters and I've been looking at how they are playing and I keep hearing the analysts saying how it's going to be a young team. They have a lot of true freshmen on their team, so I was thinking I would fit right in as a true freshman."

Mutcherson is also considering Central Michigan, Michigan, Rutgers, and Troy. Each of the aforementioned schools are recruiting him heavily, but only Central Michigan, UNC and Towson (FCS) have extended scholarship offers.

Being a known Division I recruit, Mutcherson has seen a drastic drop in passes thrown his direction this season. On the year, he has broken up five passes and made 12 tackles. On offense, he has caught eight passes for 21 yards and a touchdown.
