Price to Visit UNC this Weekend

Despite recently verbally committing to Minnesota, Jabari Price will officially visit North Carolina this weekend, he informed Inside Carolina Thursday evening.

Price, a 5-foot-11, 171-pound cornerback from Pompano Beach (Fla.) Ely, pledged to Minnesota last Saturday. Days before making that commitment, he told Inside Carolina that he was down to Minnesota, UNC, and Purdue.

"With Minnesota and Purdue, those two schools have a lot of opportunity for me to come in and see early playing time as a freshman," Price said. "UNC is closer proximity to home, as well as a good program with Coach [Butch] Davis."

After this weekend's Chapel Hill visit, Price will have officially visited all three finalists.

With his mother in tow, Price will arrive in Chapel Hill on Friday afternoon.

The visit fit into Price's schedule because Ely played Coconut Creek (Fla.) Monarch Thursday night. Ely won, 47-0.
