Four-star running back considering North Carolina

A.J. Davis is a four-star running back out of Lakeland, Florida who is strongly considering a commitment to UNC.

According to the 247Sports Composite, Davis is ranked 214th overall and is the 15th best running back in the class of 2017. He’s also a top-40 player in the state of Florida.

Reports suggest that one of the biggest factors in Davis’ recruitment is playing time. The school that has the most snaps to offer the talented running back may be at an advantage.

Given that UNC junior running back Elijah Hood declared for the NFL Draft Friday afternoon, and senior running back T.J. Logan is out of eligibility, the Tar Heels may be the leader of the pack.
