"I've only been to two schools so far this summer – North Carolina and NC State – and both visits went pretty well," said Mike Hughes. "I already knew what to expect because I had been to those two schools a few times already."
He actually visited both schools on the same day, with the first being NC State.
"It was pretty good," said the 5-foot-10, 180-pound Hughes. "I had a chance to meet with some of the players and talk to them for a while."
Next, he went to North Carolina for Fedora's Freak Show.
"It was a great atmosphere," he said. "I got to compete against some of the best athletes in the country and I felt like I did pretty well."
What's next for Hughes?
"Hopefully, my next visit will be to South Carolina," he said. "I'll probably narrow it down after that –probably to five or three – sometime this month.
"North Carolina and NC State will definitely make it. I've built a great relationship with those coaches and I feel like I'd fit in well at those programs."
Hughes said he hopes to make his decision before the season starts.
