Zack Pianalto Rebuffed Texas, Found Home as Heels' H-Back

Zack Pianalto committed to playing football at the University of Texas before his senior season in high school. Then North Carolina hired Butch Davis as its new head coach. Davis tried convincing Pianalto, a wide receiver in high school, to play H-back for the Tar Heels. Whatever Davis said to Pianalto, it worked miracles – Pianalto backed out of his Texas commitment to play for Davis. (WRAL.com)
