Searcy: 'I Loved the Environment'

North Carolina verbal commitment DaNorris Searcy has visited Chapel Hill a couple of times. However, the 6-foot, 195-pound athlete has never witnessed a game in Kenan Stadium until this past weekend.

"It was my first time going to a college football game, so I loved it," said Searcy. "I loved the environment. I like how the fans are – they stayed hyped throughout the whole game. I liked how they played. They fought hard the whole game."

Following the game, Searcy hung out with the players and spoke with members of the coaching staff.

"They were asking me how things were going with my season," said Searcy.

Searcy plans to return to Chapel Hill on November 18th.

"I think I'm supposed to come back for the N.C. State game," said Searcy. "I want to see how it is for a rivalry game."

Although he is "pretty much" firmly committed to North Carolina, Searcy will most likely take official visits to a couple of other schools after the season.

"I'm going to [officially] visit two other schools and that's it – LSU and Florida," said Searcy. "There's no particular reason, just want to check them out."

In the meantime, Searcy will focus on his senior season.

"It's going well," said Searcy. "We got off to a bad start, but we're coming together now."

Decatur (Ga.) Towers is 0-3, but the offensive philosophy has changed to focus on Searcy carrying the ball more from his tailback position. The change is supposed to result in more offensive production for the Titans.

In the second game of the season, Searcy put on a monster offensive performance -- 14 rushes for 245 yards and two touchdowns, plus three catches for 50 yards .
