Davila Visits Chapel Hill

Victor Davila, a junior power forward at Boonville (N.C.) Starmount, has been on the road a lot lately. Since returning from Puerto Rico, where he played with their national team this summer, the Top 50 standout has visited Appalachian State, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest and North Carolina.

Two weeks ago Davila and a few of his high school teammates made the two-hour drive from Boonville to Chapel Hill for the Tar Heels' football game against Furman. According to Starmount coach Kent Phillips, the visit went well.

"They are interested in [Victor]," Phillips said of the Tar Heel staff. "They've been in to see him and he went on their campus. He went to a football game. It was his decision. He went to see their facilities and that kind of thing.

"I don't know how interested [North Carolina is]. They have been in and they are keeping tabs."

After averaging 20 points and nine rebounds last season, Davila began to garner attention from a number of high major schools. For now he holds scholarship offers from Appalachian State, Virginia Commonwealth, Virginia Tech and Charlotte.

His high school has also become a popular spot as Virginia Tech, VCU, Virginia, Kansas, Clemson, Appalachian State, Pittsburgh, N.C. State, Memphis, Wake Forest, North Carolina and Charlotte have all watched him work out. Memphis, Wake Forest and Appalachian State sent head coaches to see him.

According to Phillips, Davila will narrow his list down after Christmas and will come to a decision sometime during his senior season.
