Junior Gnonkonde: Ex-Georgia Tech recruit picks UNC

Ex-Georgia Tech recruit Junior Gnonkonde committed to North Carolina on Sunday night. The 6-foot-5, 225-pound defensive end from Lanier County High School picked North Carolina over offers from South Carolina, Wake Forest, Central Florida, Syracuse and Louisiana Tech, among others. “He met with the head coach before the basketball game and said ‘I’m comfortable; I don’t need to look anywhere else,’” said Lanier County athletics director John White, who is also Junior’s legal guardian.
