The day I committed by Jordan Fieulleteau
The day I committed to the university of North Carolina was one of the most emotional and meaningful days of my life. It signified all the hard work that I had put it, paying off. It was February 13, 2012 and I had been contemplating whether or not I was going to do it. After school I talked with my mom about whether or not I should do it and she was all for it. She has loved UNC ever since the first time we stepped on campus.
When I committed I thought about whether I would want to go to the school if I didn’t play football and I also thought to myself, is there anything bad I can say about UNC? Obviously my answer was no. So after school I was with my wonderful mom, Kendra. And my beautiful girlfriend Morgan and at that point I was ready to make the decision so I called coach Fedora and to my luck he didn’t answer the first 3 times I tried him.
Luckily on the fourth call at 4:16 p.m he answered as he was boarding a plane. I just said coach “I want to be a Tar Heel,” and he was ecstatic. I was crying because I thought about all that I had gone through to get to this point in my life. My dad passing away especially. It was truly a dream come true and all I can do is thank the good lord above. About 10 minutes later my phone was blowing up from interviews and from Twitter. Everyone was congratulating me and it very safe to say I am very happy about the decision I made.
