Miami Pledge Considering UNC Visit

Miami verbal commitment Jeremy Davis may end up taking additional visits.

Davis says "there's a possible chance" he'll officially visit North Carolina this coming weekend.

"I haven't really decided if I'm going to visit yet," Davis said. "But I might have a good chance to visit – I haven't decided yet."

Davis, a 5-foot-11, 170-pound athlete from Cape Coral (Fla.), verbally committed to Miami in May. He says that pledge remains firm.

"[If I visit UNC it would be] just to check it out to see what they have to offer me," Davis said. "I want to see what else is out there. I've been to Miami a million and one times. I know what Miami has."

Davis is scheduled to officially visit Miami the weekend of Jan. 22.

Miami and UNC may not be the only schools to get an official visit from Davis. He admits that he's also considering taking official trips to "a couple more schools."

"I haven't decided, yet," Davis said on the possibility of other official visits. "Everything is up in the air with that."

Davis began hearing from Troy Douglas, UNC's area recruiter, right before his senior season ended.

This past season – his first at Cape Coral after spending his first three prep seasons at Fort Myers (Fla.) – Davis rushed for 1,000 yards and 22 touchdowns. Defensively, he recorded four interceptions, 74 tackles, and 12 pass breakups. He also blocked two punts and three field goals.

UNC, like most schools, is primarily recruiting Davis for cornerback. Some other schools have mentioned giving him an opportunity on offense at either running back or wide receiver.

"I love corner, but I also love running back," Davis said.

Since making first contact, Davis and Douglas have maintained weekly communication.

"At [cornerback], they're redoing everything, so I should be able to get a lot of playing time," Davis said.

Before the Dead Period, Douglas, along with Butch Davis, made an in-home visit with Jeremy Davis.

"[They discussed] academics and coming in and playing early," Davis said. "They also brought up the official visit."

Davis says he won't make a final decision on whether he'll officially visit UNC this weekend until late this week.
