Davis Leaves Camp with Offer

Emanuel Davis attended North Carolina's individual camp with one goal – land his second scholarship offer. On Tuesday afternoon, the athletic defensive back accomplished just that as UNC joined East Carolina on his offers list.

"[The camp] went good – they offered," said Davis. "They offered before I left. I guess they liked what they saw and Coach [Marvin Sanders] offered. [Sanders] said I had a lot of skill and that I work hard and that I have good character."

Davis, a 5-foot-11 190-pound defensive back from Manteo (N.C.), is being recruited by North Carolina for free safety.

Staying only one day [Tuesday] of the three-day camp, Davis didn't get to participate in anything but camping drills during his visit.

"I worked out, me and another player from my team [Koater Meekins]," said Davis. "We went through a whole bunch of drills, and they tested me in the [40-yard dash] and the [20-yard shuttle run], and I had an individual workout."

Davis plans to camp at Virginia Tech, and attend East Carolina's 7-on-7 passing tournament with his team.

Currently, Davis is wide open regarding favorites, but likes "anywhere in-state." The Tar Heels, however, definitely made a good impression while he was in town, he said.

"It's a great school," said Davis. "I liked what I saw when I got there."

Davis is looking to make a verbal commitment before the start of his senior football season.

During his junior season at Manteo (N.C.) High School, Davis played tailback, quarterback, outside linebacker, and safety. He earned all-conference honors after accumulating over 2,000 yards rushing and being among the team leaders in tackles. Davis is also a standout in basketball and track.
