Five from Carolina trip west

Five North Carolina players are in the great northwest. The reason for the cross country trek is three of the five players have offers from Oregon, but the Eugene campus isn't the only college the five players will visit on their western swing. They will also be visiting Oregon State and Cal.

The other two players who are hoping to pick up western offers while on the visit are linebacker Chris McCain (6-7, 215, 4.68) and sleeper athlete prospect Maurice Harris (6-3, 205).
