Searcy Returns from Official, Next is UNC

North Carolina verbal commitment Danorris Searcy took an official visit to Mississippi this past weekend.

"It went well," said Searcy. "Mostly, I ate and hung out with the players. I learned that they had seven freshmen All-Americans."

Searcy, who verbally committed to North Carolina in July, revealed that his visit to Oxford has had little effect on his pledge to the Tar Heels.

"It's still strong, but Carolina has a lot prove from this last visit, because I've seen so much," said Searcy.

This coming weekend, Searcy will take his official visit to North Carolina. He said there's a strong possibility that fellow Georgian and UNC pledge Fonterrian Ingram may also officially visit and accompany Searcy.

One of the major objectives of the visit is for Searcy to receive his first opportunity to talk to new UNC head football coach Butch Davis.

"Not yet [I haven't talked to Davis], but I have talked to Coach Thigpen, though," said Searcy.

"I last talked to him [Sunday]. He asked how the visit was, [and] did I see anything I liked down there. I told him I liked the indoor field they have, the academic program, and the business program. He's supposed to call me back later on."

Thigpen also revealed that even under Davis, North Carolina still plans to use the 6-foot, 195-pound athlete as a safety. For Decatur (Ga.) Towers, Searcy starred at tailback and linebacker.

Searcy has scheduled a third official visit for January 19th with Virginia Tech. He "probably will" take his final two allotted official visits, but said the destinations are up in the air.
