"I'm not exactly what I'll do. At first I was all about Miami but now I'm just kickin it and trying to make sure I make the right choice."
Darby, 6-2 and 225 pounds, has already enjoyed visits to both programs.
"N.C. State is further from home but I really like it there," he said. "They came at me strong all year. UM's been there all along too. It's a hard choice."
The talented tight end is still attracted to UM in a lot of ways.
"I think about all the tight ends they've had and I wanna be able to be a guy people talk about later, down the line," he said. "Miami's just a good school. I'll probably announce my final decision sometime around signing day."
Darby is a full academic qualifier.
