OL Brian Chaffin of Charlotte visited North Carolina Wednesday and, as it turns out, he will have an extended stay. Chaffin says he has been 'snowed in' and will spend the night in Chapel Hill.
"We came up to talk to the coaches and see the campus, stuff like that," he said. "We were going to the Duke-UNC basketball game tonight but it was canceled. It turned out OK for us because I got to spend more time with coach (Larry) Fedora."
The Tar Heels have offered Chaffin and are showing a lot of interest. Duke is up next for the offensive lineman as he continues to look around. He will be in Durham Saturday to visit the Blue Devils and heads to Wake Forest March 1st. Chaffin has already been to NC State and Northwestern this month and rates all of his visits thus far quality visits.
As for USC, Chaffin was getting a lot of interest from the Gamecocks during the season but says that has cooled off recently. "To be honest, I haven't really heard from them in a while," he said. Clemson, however, continues to show him interest. "They're still talking to me and told me they're still trying to figure out if they'll recruit one or two inside linemen," Chaffin said. "If they decide to go two outside linemen and one inside guy, I don't know if they'll offer or not. If they do (offer me) I want to get down there for a visit."
His plans are to take several more trips through the spring before he begins to narrow his list. He would like to commit early in the summer. Chaffin says he does not have any favorites.
