Lewter Takes in Junior Day

Jamar Lewter made his first visit to North Carolina in nearly two years Saturday when he attended the Tar Heels' Junior Day.

"It was good," Lewter said. "I got to learn their graduation rate and how many football players they graduate. And I got to learn more about the school."

Lewter, a 6-foot-6, 265-pound offensive tackle from Washington (D.C.) Ballou, last visited UNC during the summer of his sophomore season for a seven-on-seven camp.

Despite the lack of visits in-between time, UNC became Lewter's leader when it offered him last fall. Saturday's visit did nothing but strengthen those feelings.

"I got to meet the players, the coaches, [and] some of the recruits that were there, and just hung out and talked," Lewter said.

Lewter spent the most time with Sam Pittman, UNC's offensive line coach.

"He was just telling me how good of a program they are and how much they needed me to come down and help out," Lewter said.

Pittman is recruiting Lewter as a left tackle.

UNC's Saturday afternoon practice was the main event of the Junior Day.

"It was a good practice," Lewter said. "It was loud [and] 24-7, non-stop running. It was real live and up-tempo."

Lewter had originally planned to make a verbal commitment in May or June. He has now decided to push his timetable back.

"I'm going to go ahead and wait until the end of the season," Lewter said. "I'm going to try to focus on other things like school."

Lewter upcoming schedule includes visits to Auburn and Penn State.
