Da'Norris Searcy (LB/S, Decatur, GA) - A while back scout.com's #9 nationally rated WLB Da'Norris Searcy committed to the North Carolina Tar Heels, but when NC fired their head coach, he started looking elsewhere but still remained verbally committed.

That has now changed.

"I told coach (Butch) Davis in our meeting today that it is now neck and neck between them and Ole Miss," added Da'Norris Searcy. "I am undecided now. I am no longer committed to North Carolina, but they are right in there with Ole Miss."

What changed Searcy's mind?

"I do not know. The coaching change started it, and then after going on my Ole Miss visit and then this visit this weekend with North Carolina, I saw that they are both the same. They both have a great environment, and I could not say one stood out over the other. That is why they are neck and neck. I like them equally right now."

There still is a third school under consideration.

"I am going to visit Virginia Tech on January 26th, and that will be it. I am pretty much down to Ole Miss and North Carolina, but I am going to give Virginia Tech a chance too."

Da'Norris had some positive comments about his North Carolina official visit.

"It went good. We ate a lot. They gave us a tour of their facilities and where our classes would be. We toured the academic center too. I met with Coach Davis and went to a basketball game. They played High Point. It was my 5th trip to North Carolina so I was pretty familiar with everything, but I did get to see a lot of the things I have not seen before. Overall, it was a good trip. I enjoyed it. I have a tough decision to make. I will just pray about it and sit down with my family. In the end, I will make the best decision for me."
