Hillsborough DB Terrence Mitchell, whom Rivals.com ranks as the country's 84th-best prospect, will no longer visit North Carolina and instead will go to Illinois this upcoming weekend.
That effectively takes UNC out of consideration and leaves Florida State, Georgia, Illinois, Tennessee and USF in the mix.
Terriers coach Earl Garcia said FSU and USF are "neck and neck" but Illinois, where former Hillsborough star Jarred Fayson plays, has a shot.
"It depends on how hard it snows (on his visit)," Garcia joked.
