Inside Carolina – Mr. Davis, can you confirm that AJ has committed to North Carolina.
Mr. Davis – Yes, AJ called me this morning to let me know about his decision.
IC – Why do you think he decided on North Carolina?
Mr. Davis – Well, he had narrowed things down to TN, NCST, and UNC and I think the family would have been happy with any of those schools. I think the determining factor was Coach Craddock, the UNC track coach. AJ has known Coach Craddock since he was little and having him as the Track coach for the jumping events as well as being the head coach was important.
IC – How does the family feel about it?
Mr. Davis – We're happy. I think he made the right choice although the other two schools would have been good choices as well. My parents are especially happy that he didn't go to TN because they would like to come and support him (in track and football).
IC – Do you think AJ will still entertain coaching visits from other schools?
Mr. Davis – Oh no. I think he is done. Once he has made up his mind then I think that is pretty much it. He was very happy when he called and I think he is relieved to get recruiting over with.
