Cadet Lists UNC in Top Two

With Signing Day less than a month away, Travaris Cadet has put the finishing touches on his official visits schedule.

"I'm visiting Toledo [Friday] and then the following weekend I go to Tennessee," said Cadet. "The following Friday I go to North Carolina. I'm going to South Florida right before my Tennessee visit. I set up a visit with FIU on the second [of February]."

Cadet, a 6-foot-1 200-pound athlete from Miami (Fla.) Central, might not make it completely through his official visits schedule before making his college decision.

"I'll probably have my decision before the FIU visit," said Cadet.

Once considered a strong Volunteer lean, another school is now pushing for Cadet's leader.

"I'm leaning towards Tennessee, but North Carolina, they're close," said Cadet.

"First and foremost, I would love to play for a dominating offensive coordinator. Tennessee does have a dominating offensive coordinator. Also, they have a winning program and they have potential. Not only that, off the field I have sat down and spoke with Coach [Phil] Fulmer about the university. They're changing the offense and they feel I'm the guy that can get the job done.

"Also I have a lot of interest in North Carolina. I've always liked North Carolina. They got Butch Davis. I wouldn't mind playing for Butch Davis. He knows what the talent's like down here [in Miami], he's had a winning program, he recruits good players – he's always been around talent."

Cadet, who is looking to play quarterback in college, has been informed of the quarterback situation at UNC by primary recruiter Marvin Sanders.

"They told me they have a [quarterback] commitment," said Cadet. "Competition is competition. But [Sanders] talks about how he likes my skills in the film that he's seen – how I can run and throw. He told me I bring that swagger to a team."

As a senior, Cadet led Central to an 11-2 record with both his arm and his legs. He passed for 1,500 yards and 15 touchdowns and rushed for 400 yards and two touchdowns.
