Cabrera to attend Freak Show

Quickly becoming a popular calendar ear marker among North Carolina football followers, "Fedora's Freak Show" is an event that allows the UNC coaching staff to interact with a bevy of recruits and get a close look at each one of them.

Last year saw players like Robert Dinkins, Ryan Switzer, Desmond Lawrence and Jaylan Barbour among those on the RSVP list.

This year, Jacksonville (N.C.) Northside wide receiver Josh Cabrera will be in attendance working out in front of the UNC coaching staff.

While he's excited for the opportunity, Cabrera admits he's not sure what to expect of the uniquely named event.

"Not really," said Cabrera. "I have no clue actually."

Plenty of high-caliber athletes will be flying around the Kenan Memorial Stadium fields during the event and the day could hold extra meaning for Cabrera because he's been keeping in touch with the UNC coaching staff on a regular basis.

Along with the Tar Heels, rival Duke is also in the discussion as a team Cabrera is keeping close contact with.

"Those are just the two I keep in contact most with now," said Cabrera. "I really want to visit Virginia Tech this summer because I haven't visited them at all."

The Hokies don't currently have a wide receiver in their 2014 class and are known to employ big physical receivers. At 6-foot-2 and 187 pounds, Cabrera has the frame to fit any system.

While UNC and Duke seem to be in the mix as far as dialogue is concerned, Cabrera assured Tar Heel Illustrated that all teams that have offered him have an equal shot at landing him to this point.

"I just want to get more of a feel about where I want to go and get more comfortable," said Cabrera. "It's still even."

Cabrera is looking to improve upon the experience he had during The Rivals Camp Series in Charlotte in April.

"I should have done way better than I did. It was a really good experience but I haven't really gotten any feedback from it yet," said Cabrera. "Overall I thought it was a good experience even though I thought I could have done better."
