UNC's top needs in the 2018 football recruiting class

The Tar Heels will have a new quarterback this season and once it’s over they’re going to lose four offensive linemen. They already have a commitment from three-star Avery Jones. Getting commitments from a combination of Rivals100 linemen William Barnes and Richard Gouraige or Rivals250 linemen Rasheed Walker and Nana Asiedu would be a home run for the Tar Heels.

Brandon Harris opens up on his time in Baton Rouge - the good, bad and ugly

Brandon Harris believes he would have been, and he still will be, a “force to be reckoned with” in a spread offense. LSU’s run-heavy, pro-style system is a big reason, he said, why his three years at LSU ended like it did — with him announcing earlier this month that he’s transferring to UNC. Even former LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron told Harris that he is “made for a spread system.” (Baton Rouge Advocate)

Chansky’s Notebook: UNC Football's Creative Recruiting

The last couple of weeks, UNC football has looked more like an NFL franchise picking up players off the waiver wire.

The signees fill immediate needs. (Chapelboro.com)

Brandon Harris will be better off at UNC than he was at LSU

Brandon Harris completed his transfer process Sunday, announcing that he’ll be finishing his college football career at UNC. And Harris is going to be better off there, too.
