DB Brian Walker (5-11 180) of Charlotte had favored USC early in his junior season but the North Carolina schools have taken the lead for his services.
"I would have to say that my two favorites are (North) Carolina and NC State," Walker said. "I'm really focusing on the in-state schools right now."
Walker was in Columbia visiting the Gamecocks two weeks ago. "It went pretty good," he said. "They want me to come back for a spring practice and I'm sure I'll go down there."
He is heading to Chapel Hill this weekend for his second visit to UNC. "I was up there for the Duke basketball game last week," he said.
His offers are from USC, UNC, NC State, Virginia, Auburn and Minnesota. Walker has no timetable for a commitment.
