UNC Football Recruiting: National Signing Day

Today is the big day that all college football fans wait for…to see where their team will rank after the nations best sign their National Letter of Intent.

Larry Fedora has been rather busy today. Most of his team was secure, but he did have one change his mind after an entire year of saying he was a Tar Heel.

Three star safety Korrin Wiggins has turned his soft verbal commitment to UNC into a signed letter of intent for Clemson. His high school teammate and friend Khris Francis (RB, 5′ 9″, 195 lbs.) will be a Tar Heel. Francis has already been enrolled at the University of North Carolina for the spring semester and will play spring football with a few others that came to Chapel Hill early.

Joining Francis in the early enrollment gang are three other eager young Tar Heels.

Mitch Trubisky, a four star dual-threat-quarterback, enrolled early as well further showing his commitment to North Carolina and Coach Fedora. RJ Prince, the four star offensive tackle from Albemarle, NC has already began classes. Jordan Fieulleteau, a four star wide receiver out of Raleigh also joined the early enrollment gang.

Brad Henson, a three star offensive guard, will be a Tar Heel. He was originally a commit to Virginia before flipping to Fedora and the Heels. He chooses North Carolina over Virginia, Rutgers, Wisconsin Tennessee and South Carolina.

Defensive End Mikey Bart is the next player to sign his letter of intent for the University of North Carolina. The three star defensive end from Georgia made his official visit just a few weeks ago.

Lucas Crowley will give the Heels some presence in the center position again. The three star center is ranked twelfth in his position.

Four star defensive end Dajaun Drennon signed his letter of intent this morning to join the University of North Carolina. He ranks fourth overall for his position. He choose the Tar Heels over Alabama, Boston College, Cal, and Clemson.

Three star cornerback Brian Walker will be in Chapel Hill this fall. The 5’10″ and 180 pound defensive back has been a solid verbal for a while, but made his intentions official today.

Greg Webb signed his intent this morning. Webb is a four star defensive tackle that ranks thirteenth for his position. His size will definitely make people aware of his presence on the field and will make any offense scurry to keep their eyes on him.

Apparently scouts and fans are already in love with Johnathan Howard. So much love for this young three star wide receiver has persuaded him to keep his verbal with North Carolina.

Safety Donnie Miles of North Gwinnett Georgia will put his speed and athleticism to the test at Kenan! The three star safety ranks thirty-second overall in the safety position.

The number one player in West Virginia will be a Tar Heel. Three star recruit Ryan Switzer who plays both the Wide Reciever and Cornerback positions has been highly touted and quickly has become a fan favorite for the boys in Carolina blue.

Arguably the most talked about recruit for Fedora is Nazair Jones. He signed his LOI this morning reaffirming that commitment to the Tar Heels. A four-star Defensive End/Tackle from Roanoke Rapids, Jones will add some depth to a position that has been a focus point of the Tar Heels recruiting efforts since the Butch Davis era.

The eighth signee for Fedora and North Carolina was Desmond Lawrence the four star defensive back from Charlotte.

While Gio Bernard has played his last game in Carolina Blue, the running back situation is well covered. Four star running back TJ Logan is coming to Chapel Hill after choosing the Tar Heels over Auburn, California, Clemson, N.C. State, Ohio State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Wake Forest and West Virginia.
