Dembry Adjusts to New Position

Despite spending all three days playing a somewhat unfamiliar position, Danny Dembry felt positive about his performance for the North Carolina coaches during the Tar Heels' individual camp earlier in the week.

"It went great," said Dembry. "I worked with the receivers mostly. I think I did good, but I felt a little awkward playing wide receiver so much, though."

Dembry, a 6-foot-3 185-pound athlete, stars at quarterback for Ahoskie (N.C.) Hertford County High School, but is being recruited for receiver and defensive back. Regardless, receiver coach Dave Brock was happy with what he saw from Dembry.

"He said he would let me know more about coming there and a scholarship," said Dembry. "He said [he'd let me know] later on, like a few weeks."

Although Dembry is awaiting word on the UNC scholarship offer, Buffalo, East Carolina, Kentucky, NC State, and South Carolina have all offered.

While Dembry is still keeping his options open regarding favorites, his three-day stay in Chapel Hill continues to keep the Tar Heels in a good light.

"It's a great program, I could fit in it very well," said Dembry. "I learned a lot of different stuff while I was there."

Currently, Dembry is camping at N.C. State, and will camp at Virginia Tech on July 8th and Texas A&M July 16th.

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.
