Although Bristol, a 5-foot-11, 170-pound athlete from Morgantown (N.C.) Freedom, is being recruited for cornerback and wide receiver, he has spent the past two seasons at quarterback for Freedom High School.
Bristol is trying to keep an open mind during the recruiting process, but admits two schools have begun to separate themselves from the pack.
"I like Virginia Tech and [North] Carolina," said Bristol. "But I'm still trying to look at every school."
The February signing of long time friend and former teammate Jordan Hemby definitely has given the Tar Heels an unmatched advantage.
