West is originally from Baltimore, Md., and he is taking a hard look at schools near his former stomping ground -- but one stands out from the rest.
"North Carolina is my No. 1 school," said West. "It's been a dream of mine to be a Tar Heel. I love how their entire athletic program is successful, and they also have great academics in Chapel Hill. If North Carolina offered me, it would be hard not to commit. I want to give football a bigger name at North Carolina. Maryland is my number two school right now."
West is planning to attend the Ray Lewis Linebacker Camp as well as a the Cris Carter/Randy Moss Speed Camp this summer.
He is also receiving interest from Tulane and Vanderbilt. He is a good student that should progress well this summer, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him get invited to some other camps.
