Can Heels land Davis?

Glen Davis may have an offer on the table from the North Carolina staff, but Tar Heels fans shouldn't be holding their breath waiting for the big two-sport star to land in Chapel Hill.

According to a pair of sources close to the situation, it will take a mammoth effort for any college to get the nimble 6-7 1/2, 330-pound senior out of Louisiana.

"Almost impossible," said one source.

"He loves LSU," said Sports Academy head man Collis Temple Jr. "They've given him options that are real attractive. The football guys told him he could play basketball, play both sports or play football after a couple years if basketball doesn't work out."

Davis has decided to bypass his senior season on the gridiron to focus on basketball. However, it's unlikely that his football career is over.

"He's not giving it up," added Temple. "He's just putting it on hold. My prediction is that football will be back in his life before it's all over."

Davis averaged 24 points, 15 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 blocks per game last year at LSU Laboratory School in Baton Rouge. He also played fullback, tight end and was a fixture on the defensive line as a junior.

Davis had trimmed his list to a final five that includes LSU, Indiana, Miami, Georgia and Oklahoma prior to the offer from the Tar Heels. While Davis is keeping all of his options open, UNC is fighting from behind because LSU, Georgia and Miami have all agreed to let the charismatic Davis play both sports.
