Late addition: North Carolina inks 2013 junior college offensive lineman
[dropcap]I[/dropcap]nterior offensive linemen are in short supply at North Carolina, and the Tar Heels have added a late 2013 signee in hopes of helping to address that need.
Dancy, 6-foot-4, 297 pounds, has had quite a journey to Chapel Hill.
A native of Graham, N.C., Dancy played both guard and center before finishing his career at Southern Alamance High School in 2010. He was an academic qualifier, but his only scholarship offers were from Division II schools, so he decided to spend the 2011 season at Hargrave Military Academy.
The following spring, he moved to JUCO powerhouse Iowa Western Community College before transferring to Eastern Arizona.
Dancy reportedly had a scholarship offer from Cincinnati to sign immediately, and also considered returning to Eastern Arizona, where he was receiving recruiting interest from Wisconsin and Arizona for 2014.
During a visit to UNC last week, Dancy received an offer from his home state school, and signed with the Tar Heels. He was recruited by Tar Heels offensive coach Chris Kapilovic.
“We’re pleased to welcome Will to our program,” UNC head coach Larry Fedora said in a release. “He’s a native of North Carolina and is eager to compete for playing time this fall. Coach (Chris) Kapilovic did a good job recruiting him back to his home state and we think he’s versatile enough to play a variety of interior positions on the offensive line.”
Dancy will enroll at Carolina this summer and have four years to play three.
