Camp Secures UNC in Davis' Top 3

Unlike most of the recruits who attended North Carolina's camp this past weekend, Vontae Davis wasn't there to earn a Tar Heels' scholarship offer.

"It went pretty good, I did ok," said Davis. "I had an offer before I went there, but every school I went to I worked out at their camp even though I had an offer. I'm always trying to get better everyday."

In addition to getting another workout in with a Division I-A college staff, Davis, a 5-foot-11, 185-pound safety from Washington (D.C.) Dunbar, used the opportunity to see the campus first hand.

"It's a nice campus," said Davis. "When you first go into the room that posts the past players like Julius Peppers, it doesn't seem like you are on a campus it seems like you are in a history museum."

The UNC coaching staff used the opportunity to better evaluate Davis to determine what position is a more appropriate fit for him at the next level – cornerback or safety. The staff is still undecided.

"They said it would be a good place for me and I can play right away," said Davis. "They were just talking to me about what position I could play. They said I could play corner, because I have speed to play corner, or I could play safety."

Despite enjoying his visit, Davis is keeping things between his top three schools – UNC, Illinois, and Maryland – equal until he takes official visits.

"It's a nice school, it's still one of my top three schools," said Davis. "Everything is still the same, because I haven't made any official visits and gone on campus when students are actually there and going to games and in the locker room and stuff like that."

Currently, Davis holds 12 offers including Rutgers, Duke, Temple, Akron, Kent State and his three favorites.

Davis doesn't have any additional unofficial visits planned and will focus on his senior season and setting up official visits in the upcoming months.
