No wavering for UNC commit Drennon

10/22/2012

ERIAL, N.J. -- For three-star Dajuan Drennon (Erial, N.J./Timber Creek), there was no uncertainty on his part.

As the North Carolina commit and nation's No. 47 defensive end watched the NCAA investigate the program again this summer, Drennon, who committed in July, never wavered or looked around.

“My commitment there is solid,” Drennon said, adding his official visit to North Carolina in December will be the only official visit he takes.

In fact, Drennon will visit Chapel Hill the next two weekends for the NC State and Georgia Tech games. Drennon saw his first North Carolina game earlier this season when the Tar Heels played Virginia Tech.

“I loved it,” Drennon said of the atmosphere at UNC for the Virginia Tech game.

Drennon’s teammate and ESPN 150 defensive tackle Greg Webb is also solid in his commitment to North Carolina, Webb said. Webb decommitted from Penn State in favor of North Carolina in July.

It was Webb’s decommitment and desire to attend North Carolina that forced Drennon to make his decision earlier than planned.

“We always talked about going to college together and after the whole Penn State scandal he was going to decommit, but [Webb’s flip to UNC] did surprise me a little bit,” Drennon said. “That actually pushed my commitment [up] a little more.”

This season, Drennon said he is averaging about 1.5 sacks and eight tackles per game. He missed two games early in the season because of a cut on his head from a car accident.
