Dashaun Jerkins' stock continues to rise. The 6-foot, 188-pound Jerkins' scholarship total has reached double digits. 

North Carolina has led for months and remains the team to beat.

"They're still my leader," Jerkins said. "When I go to Chapel Hill, I just feel at home and they make feel like family. I also like the atmosphere and coaches. I'll probably visit again sometime this spring.

"(Linebackers) coach (John) Papachis stays in contact and we have a great relationship. He's straightforward and always honest with me. He's been telling me I could make a really big impact at UNC in the future and that I'd fit in really well down there. I also like coach (Larry) Fedora. I think he changed the program around and they've had a lot of success. I think he brings a lot to the table."

Vanderbillt: "They've been telling me that they want me to come visit really bad," Jerkins said. "They also stay in contact consistently.
