Coples visits Chapel Hill

Kinston (N.C.) defensive end Quinton Coples made an unofficial visit to North Carolina during the weekend for the Tar Heels' Junior Day event. The Junior All-American came away impressed.

"(The visit) went real good," Coples said. "I'm just getting in the car right now"

Several activities stood out to the 6-foot-6, 250-pounder.
