UNC signee Roscoe Johnson has good connection with Tar Heels

Union County wide receiver Roscoe Johnson was asked during the National Signing Day ceremony which friends he wanted to pull out of the audience for a picture with him.

Auburn assistant Dameyune Craig Trolls North Carolina assistant Gunter Brewer

You can't really call this a feud, but it is a fun side story to today's events. It all started on the 28th when UNC Co-Offensive Coordinator Gunter Brewer visited Tampa, FL Wide Receiver Nate Craig-Myers. Coaches are not allowed to tweet about recruits before they've signed or other teams' players. So, there were some code words being used. (College and Magnolia)

UNC Football 2016 Class Superlatives Part 2

The most polished offensive lineman prospect in the class, Jay Jay McCargo is also the most versatile. The Virginia native could play tackle, guard, or center in a pinch. He might be a bit undersized for tackle right now but will help UNC's depth from day one. McCargo's coaches raved about his technique and physical ability which make him a lot to handle in the trenches. (Carolina Blue)

UNC Playing Career Guiding Chad Scott's Approach

Chad Scott's wife, Shambrica, has grown tired of hearing about the Miami game, and there’s little doubt his children will join their mother in that regard at some point.

'15 Wins Setting Foundation for '17 Recruits
