Dashaun Jerkins' stock continues to rise. The 6-foot, 188-pound Jerkins' scholarship total has reached double digits.
North Carolina has led for months and remains the team to beat.
"They're still my leader," Jerkins said. "When I go to Chapel Hill, I just feel at home and they make feel like family. I also like the atmosphere and coaches. I'll probably visit again sometime this spring.
"(Linebackers) coach (John) Papachis stays in contact and we have a great relationship. He's straightforward and always honest with me. He's been telling me I could make a really big impact at UNC in the future and that I'd fit in really well down there. I also like coach (Larry) Fedora. I think he changed the program around and they've had a lot of success. I think he brings a lot to the table."
Vanderbillt: "They've been telling me that they want me to come visit really bad," Jerkins said. "They also stay in contact consistently.
"(Defensive backs) coach (Marc) Mattioli is recruiting me. He's told me I'd have a chance to earn early playing time and that I could really help them out."
Wake Forest: "I like that they've had a lot of DBs go to the NFL. I also like the coaches because they always stay in touch and ask how I'm doing.
"(Safeties) coach (Lyle) Hemphill is the coach I talk to and he's also straightforward. He constantly checks up and has told me I could do big things there."
Jerkins plans to narrow his list of schools sometime this fall.
