Davis picks Tar Heels

2/1/2012

Wide receiver Quinshad Davis (Gaffney, S.C.) just made his college selection, when he picked North Carolina over Tennessee and Wake Forest. This is a significant pickup for new Tar Heel head coach Dan Jones.

“Quinshad had three great schools to pick from,” said Dan Jones, Gaffney’s coach. “They have a great business school and that’s what he wants to study. He had a great visit to North Carolina and they are going to throw the heck out of the ball. That’s all appealing to Quinshad.”

Davis, 6-foot-4 and 190-pounds, had a brilliant senior season, catching 108 passes for over 2,000 yards and 24 scores.

“North Carolina is getting a kid with great size and he can really catch the football,” Jones said. “And he’s such a competitor. Plus, they will never have to worry about him. He was brought up right and is a true student athlete.”

Davis is a three-star recruit.
