Greer Impressed by UNC Official Visit

Greer Impressed by UNC Official Visit

Steve Greer's official visit to North Carolina over the weekend has made the Tar Heels one of the leading candidates to receive his signature for the rapidly approaching Signing Day.

"I liked it a lot," Greer said. "It was an unbelievable place. It was really nice.

"Now, I'm really interested in North Carolina. All the coaches are awesome. Players, the campus, the facility – it's definitely a place I can really see myself going."

Greer, a 6-foot-2, 215-pound linebacker from Solon (Ohio), isn't prepared to name favorites, but UNC definitely made its case over the weekend.

"They're up there now," Greer said. "I really liked it, so they're definitely up there."

Junior linebacker Chase Rice hosted Greer for the first half of the weekend, while freshman quarterback Mike Paulus picked up the second half.

"They took me through all the dorms, through the campus, just kind of hung out with all the other guys, [and] showed me what they do when they're not doing football," Greer said.

Throughout the visit, Greer had various conversations with Butch Davis during meals and brief meetings. The two closed out Greer's stay with an extended one-on-one meeting.

"We just talked about how they'd like to have me and he told me to make the decision that's best for me," Greer said. "I really enjoyed talking to him."

Greer also spent a great deal of time with Tommy Thigpen, UNC's linebacker coach.

"I talked to him a lot," Greer said. "He just told me that he thinks that I'll be a really good fit at linebacker at UNC. He likes how I play."

Although Signing Day is 10 days away, much is still up in the air for Greer.

"Virginia offered me and they want me to take a visit," Greer said. "There's a possibility that I could do that. And also, I'm waiting to see what happens with Michigan.

"I'm not exactly sure [when I'll decide]. I don't have a set date. I'm just kind of seeing where it goes."

In addition to UNC, Greer has officially visited Eastern Michigan and Oklahoma State. Although he doesn't have any future official trips scheduled, it's very likely that he'll take at least a fourth.

Greer, who wants to make a verbal commitment before Signing Day, doesn't want to list true finalists or favorites, but says two schools do stand out.

"I really like Oklahoma State and North Carolina, though," Greer said. "I just really liked them. And if I take visits to other places, I'll see how that goes."
