UNC Sticking Out For Reavis

While on spring break last week, C.J. Reavis decided to drop by North Carolina's practice on Wednesday to observe and spend time with UNC's coaches and players.

"I like how the coaches coach," Reavis said. "They practice very fast – I liked that. I liked how the coaches and players interact with each other."

In particular, Reavis, a 6-foot, 190-pound safety from Chester (Va.) Dale, spent most of his time watching the safety group, which is coached by Vic Koenning.

"I liked that they did a lot of footwork stuff so that they can show that they have more than just tackling ability – they can move their feet, too," Reavis said. "They did a lot of game-time drills. They work at game speed [and] it was very quick – I liked that."

While on UNC's practice field, Reavis conversed with assistant coaches Walt Bell and Koenning, as well as Larry Fedora.

"They were telling me how they needed safeties, need playmakers, and how I could make a big impact fast," Reavis said.

UNC's 4-2-5 defense utilizes three different safeties – Ram, free, and strong. The Tar Heels coaching staff hasn't determine which spot Reavis exactly fits.

"They told me that when I come in, wherever I fit best at, that's where I'll play," Reavis said. "I don't have a preference. I feel like no matter where I play I can excel at. It really doesn't matter to me."

Reavis also visited Virginia during his spring break. Previously, he has visited Ohio State, Virginia Tech, and Wake Forest. He doesn't have any future recruiting travel plans.

Through his visits, Reavis says that UNC, Ohio State, and Virginia Tech are sticking out.

"I just felt at home at those schools," Reavis said. "I felt like I could be there for four years. I felt comfortable."

Reavis reports offers from each of the aforementioned schools. In total, 17 schools have offered him.

To get a better handle on his recruitment, Reavis plans to announce a top ten schools list on April 15.

"I'm just going to sit down with my parents next week and talk about it," Reavis said. "I'm looking for schools that make me feel wanted, and that I can go there and make an impact, and a good environment."

Reavis will eventually trim his list to a top five, but he's unsure when that will take place.
