UNC gets commitment from WR prospect Erik Highsmith

Erik Highsmith, a basketball-turned-football player at West Craven High School in Vanceboro, impressed the UNC coaching staff while performing as a wide receiver at the university's summer camp. The Tar Heels were the first and only school to offer him a scholarship. (Fayetteville Observer)
