Dembry Waiting on UNC Offer

Along with his Ahoskie (N.C.) Hertford County teammates, Danny Dembry arrived late and left early from North Carolina's spring game. However, he liked what he did see.

"It was great," said Dembry of his visit. "I got there a little late, but it was ok."

Obviously the length of his trip prevented him from speaking to anyone from the North Carolina coaching staff, but later that week Dembry contacted recruiting coordinator Kenny Browning to catch-up.

"They told me to come back on campus and we'll talk about an offer," said Dembry. "I'm trying to get up there as soon as possible."

Dembry, who already has collected scholarship offers from East Carolina, Kentucky, and N.C. State, isn't sure when he will be back in Chapel Hill besides the Tar Heels' summer camp.

While most schools are hoping to plug Dembry into wide receiver at the next level, North Carolina is recruiting the 6-foot-3, 180-pounder at safety.

According to Dembry, position won't play much of a factor come decision time, but growing up a Tar Heel fan will help UNC's chances.

"I'm still wide open," said Dembry. "But, growing up a fan of them will play in [during decision time]. I'm just weighing my options right now."

At's All-American Combine in Durham, Dembry ran the 40-yard dash in 4.87 seconds, 20-yard shuttle in 4.56 seconds, and L-cone drill in 7.81 seconds. He also broad jumped 9'8".

During his junior season at Hertford County, Dembry, starring at quarterback, rushed for almost 800 yards and 12 touchdowns and passed for over 500 yards and five touchdowns.
