Towers (Decatur, GA) standout Da’Norris Searcy made it to Chapel Hill this past weekend for an official visit to UNC. This visit was especially important as the 6-0, 205-pound prospect had verbally committed to the Tar Heels this past summer before John Bunting’s departure.

“It went good,” Searcy said of the UNC visit. “It was nice. It was a great opportunity to meet [Butch Davis].”

What did Searcy, a defensive back/linebacker prospect, think of the new head coach of the Tar Heels?

“I liked that he came at you direct,” Searcy said. “I liked him. He said they need great players and that I was one of those players he needed.”

Following the news that John Bunting would not return as head coach, Searcy began to look around to other programs. Ole Miss and Virginia Tech were two of the primary programs under consideration and Searcy scheduled official visits for both – to Ole Miss on the weekend of December 2nd and to Virginia Tech on the weekend of January 26th.

Searcy compared the UNC visit with his experience at Ole Miss the previous weekend.

“It was good,” Searcy said. “UNC did a lot of things different than Ole Miss.”

Asked where he felt more comfortable, Searcy replied “I felt more at home at UNC than Ole Miss.”

Searcy was also asked if he will now solidify his decision to attend UNC or if he would take more official visits.

“I don’t know yet,” Searcy answered.

TSL’s take: Stay tuned, as we will follow up with Da’Norris in several weeks to find out his future plans. UNC helped itself this past weekend and appears to have reclaimed the lead. Ole Miss does remain in the mix and I know Searcy’s father really enjoyed that trip. Virginia Tech just has to hope that Da’Norris decides to make that visit in January.
