Two A.J.'s and an Ian

<I>Inside Carolina</I> interviewed three of North Carolina's top prospects, Ian Firestone, A. J. Davis and A. J. Nicholson.

Ian Firestone plans on making an official visit to North Carolina on Friday evening (10/12) after his High School game and he will return home on Sunday. He plans to attend the UNC/UVa game, as well as learn more about the academic and social life in Chapel Hill. I asked Ian about his frame of mind going into the visit. First, it appears that it is a two-horse race between Boston College and Carolina. Currently, Boston College has the edge due to possibly because he's already officially visited BC. Ian's HS team is currently 3-3. Ian has five touchdown catches and three interceptions. Teams are kicking away from him, but he does have one kick return touchdown. Ian plans to sit down after his UNC visit to assess what he wants to do. IC plans to call Ian again next Monday to see how the visit went. Carolina has had two home games and two verbals. Can the Heels make it three for three?

A. J. Davis returned from his visit to Notre Dame this past weekend. He said he had a good visit and that he liked ND. He did not commit to ND however. A. J. says it is down to four schools; UNC, ND, FSU, and AL. He plans on taking official visits to all of his favorites (including UNC). A. J. was at the FSU/Carolina game and stated that he had a good time and really enjoyed the game. He also said that he no longer is considering Wake Forest. Davis has an official visit scheduled for Alabama on 1/11/02. He will schedule visits to FSU and UNC soon.

A. J. Nicholson had a busy Saturday, September 22nd when he attended the TN/LSU game in Knoxville. Nicholson was very impressed with the large crowd. He was on an unofficial visit to TN and did not commit. His favorite seven are UGA, TN, FSU, MIA, UNC, ND and TX. He has official visits scheduled for ND (11/3), MIA (12/15), and FSU (1/10). He said he thinks that UNC will get his fourth official visit and the last official visit will be determined between UGA, TN, and TX.
