Mullins, a Missouri native, said he came to North Carolina for better competition and because he felt East Wake could contend for a state championship.
He currently has several offers, including a pair from traditional Midwest powerhouses Nebraska and Oklahoma.
"If Aleric decides to play in-state I think it will be because he has bonded with the people he is staying with and the staff, as well as his teammates at East Wake," Davenport said. "Now everyone here would like to have a chance to see him play in person. He has spent 16 years on his life in the Midwest so I am sure that has a pull on him as well. Right now I think he is really wide open and taking his time visiting different schools."
Mullins will camp at East Carolina this week.
