Wide receiver Quinshad Davis raised the status of Larry Fedora's first North Carolina class on National Signing Day, choosing the Tar Heels over Tennessee and Wake Forest.
"The coaching staff, the players - I felt the most comfortable there," Davis said in a press conference from his high school on Wednesday. "They showed me film and they run basically the same thing we run."
The 6-foot-4, 190 pound wideout helped Gaffney (S.C) High School to the Class AAAA Division I title game with 2,009 yards receiving and 25 touchdowns in his senior season. Davis is listed by Tom Lemming as one of the top wide receivers in the 2012 class.
"Has soft hands, good speed, can get in and out of his cuts quickly, and is consistently able to get separation from man to man coverage," Lemming said of Davis. "He does a good job of selling a fake in his route and can beat the DB with a double move."
Larry Fedora brought offensive coordinator Blake Anderson with him from Southern Miss, and the pair has been tirelessly hitting the recruiting trail to pull prospects that fit their up-tempo offensive scheme. Davis joins quarterback James Summers as notable late additions to the Tar Heels' 2012 class.
