Tar Heels secure highly-coveted RB from Matthews


North Carolina landed its most coveted power runner Friday when Ryan Houston, a 6-foot-2, 255-pound tailback from Matthews Butler High, verbally committed to play football for the Tar Heels. Houston, a rising senior, is rated the nation's No. 11 running back by Rivals.com and would fill a void left by Ronnie McGill's departure after the 2006 season. He picked the Heels over several schools that had offered scholarships, including N.C. State, Clemson, Tennessee, Florida and Miami. (Greensboro News & Record)
