Drew: 'UNC is my No. 1'

One of the pure sleepers in North Carolina, Davon Drew, is a top target for several schools.

A sleeper whom many want to see this summer is New Bern (NC) quarterback Davon Drew. Drew brings his best effort every game, and led his team to the state title game this season.

"I am very versatile in the way I can run or throw. My size is also an asset," says the 6-foot-4, 215 pounder with a 4.6 second time in the 40. "I really don't think about comparing myself to other quarterbacks, but maybe I am like an Aaron Brooks or a taller Donovan McNabb."

High praise could be expected as, according to Drew's head coach Chip Williams, who will also take the role of N. Carolina's Shrine Bowl head coach this year, Drew is the number one target of several area schools. Davon is unaware as to which schools have him number one on their board, but he has a number one target himself.

"North Carolina is my number one. I have always wanted to go there," he says. "I am also taking a hard look at Virginia, East Carolina, and North Carolina State. I am going to try to get to a lot of camps this summer to get a better look at all of them."

Though without offers at the moment, Drew, who threw for 1400 yards, ran for 800 more, and had 17 passing touchdowns, wants to wait until Signing Day to announce his choice.
