Here is the official word on Drew Davis headed to the University of North Carolina from WRALSportsFan.com……We join East Chapel Hill coach Bill Renner with his comments on Davis to UNC…..
“I talked with UNC and they told me he did enroll,” Chapel Hill (N.C.) East head football coach Bill Renner said. “Other than that, [Drew] didn’t tell me why, how, when, or any of that other stuff, because I haven’t talked to him in two or three weeks… I figured he would call me if he needed me, but he has a pretty good support system as it is.”
According to a source close to UNC, Davis, a 6-foot-2, 195-pound quarterback, was offered a preferred walk-on spot and enrolled in the second summer semester. A similar offer was extended by Miami, where his father coached for 11 seasons, including six as head coach.
“The last thing that I had heard, which was in May, was that [Davis] was going to go to Miami,” Renner said. “They had been after him since January, [because] they wanted him to come in early. Drew just wanted to be a free agent to see what was out there. He knew he didn’t have to rush it.”
