S.C. WR Mulling UNC Visit

After receiving a North Carolina scholarship offer late last week, Quinshad Davis is attempting to squeeze in an official visit to Chapel Hill before Signing Day.

"He has an interest [in UNC]," Gaffney head coach Dan Jones said. "He would like to go visit. He's not really sure [when he'll visit]. He's trying to get it set up with North Carolina. I'm not real sure how he's going to work it out. He's debating on how to get it worked out before Signing Day. He's deciding who he wants to eliminate so he could visit the schools he's really interested in."

Davis, a 6-foot-3, 180-pound wide receiver, has official visits scheduled the next three weekends – Wake Forest this weekend, followed by Tennessee, and then Mississippi. However, Jones expects Davis to cancel the trip to Mississippi.

"I think he's ruling [Mississippi] out," Jones said. "I'd say he's mostly considering Wake Forest for sure, North Carolina, South Carolina has come back in, and Tennessee."

If Davis does indeed cancel his Mississippi official trip, it would obviously open up the final weekend of January for either UNC or South Carolina.

UNC's previous coaching staff recruited Davis, but never offered. The decision to offer is likely a product of the Tar Heels' offensive system change.

"[Gunter Brewer] said they're going to get more receivers on the field," Jones said. "They only have two receivers [committed] right now, so they need some receivers."

The new staff offered Davis last Thursday.

"Coach [Larry] Fedora called me [and offered Davis]," Jones said. "But Brewer was the one that came here, talked to Quinshad, and told me he would have Coach Fedora call me."

As a senior, Davis helped Gaffney to the Class AAAA Division I title game by catching 108 passes for 2,009 yards and 25 touchdowns. Following the season, he was named to his second consecutive All-State team, and selected to play in the Shrine Bowl and Offense-Defense All-American Bowl games.

"He just have exceptional hands and he's such a competitor," Jones said. "He catches away from his body. He's a winner. He runs good routes, has a little wiggle to him, and with his size he's going to be special for somebody."
