UNC Football Recruiting

Complete coverage of North Carolina Football Recruiting.

Braxton Berrios commits to Miami

Leesville Road athlete Braxton Berrios ended the suspense on Saturday afternoon by committing to play football at the University of Miami. Berrios, one of the top-ranked football players in the state, announced his decision during a noon press conference at his high school. (High School OT)

Providence High offensive lineman Bentley Spain is ‘the real deal’

Providence High first year head coach Justin Hardin had heard about a talented Panthers’ offensive lineman before he came to the school. “I knew there was a special tackle here,” he said. That special tackle is Bentley Spain, a 6-foot-6, 285-pound senior that is committed to play at North Carolina. He is ranked the No. 12 senior offensive tackle in the country and the No. 10 senior recruit in North Carolina by ESPN. Spain was also named last week to the North Carolina roster for the Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas. (Charlotte Observer)

Donell Stanley commits to South Carolina

Donell Stanley is an up-and-coming tackle prospect in the Class of 2014, and he has finally made his much anticipated decision on where he will be taking his talents. The Latta High School Star out of South Carolina will be attending South Carolina. At 6’4”, 327 pounds, Stanley has the prototypical size to play guard. If the Gamecocks hadn’t nabbed him, it’s likely Stanley would have signed with either Alabama, Clemson, or North Carolina. (Bleacher Report)

Six UNC Football Commits Named to Shrine Bowl

Six North Carolina verbal commitments have been named to the 77th Annual Shrine Bowl Roster. The North Carolina Shrine Bowl roster includes wide receiver Josh Cabrera (Jacksonville (N.C.) Northside), linebacker Cayson Collins (Charlotte (N.C.) Berry Academy), defensive lineman Robert Dinkins (Charlotte (N.C.) Olympic), running back Elijah Hood (Charlotte (N.C.) Catholic), kicker Freeman Jones (Bunn (N.C.)), and offensive lineman Bentley Spain (Charlotte (N.C.) Providence). (Inside Carolina)

Nyheim Hines scores 6 touchdowns

Junior standout Nyheim Hines provided six of Garner’s nine touchdowns on the night. He finished with 250 yards rushing on 22 carries and 97 yards receiving. Hines now has 26 touchdowns on the season. Hines scored three touchdowns in the first half – the last a hard-to-believe one-handed catch on a wheel route in full stride from Brighton Hudson. Hines didn’t miss a step after corralling the ball and raced away for a 79-yard touchdown that put the Trojans up 28-14 with 4 minutes, 54 seconds to play in the first half. (Raleigh News & Observer)

Elijah Hood has another big night

The Cougars’ 41-14 win against Harding on Friday was Catholic’s second straight – a first this season. After opening 2-2, Catholic (4-2, 2-0) is building momentum and confidence behind an offense that cranked out 562 yards, including 520 on the ground. “It was a great night,” said Cougars running back Elijah Hood, a North Carolina recruit who ran for 209 yards and four touchdowns on 13 carries. “The offensive line did a great job of giving me holes and I just followed what they gave me.” (Charlotte Observer)

OL Donell Stanley has made his decision

Latta OL Donell Stanley has made his decision on a college and will announce the choice sometime this week or next. The timing is based on when his sister from Connecticut comes home. When she arrives, Stanley will reveal his choice. Stanley is down to USC, Clemson, Alabama and North Carolina. He is not going to a game this Saturday. (Palmetto Sports)

Is 2015 4-star WR Juval Mollette a heavy UNC lean?

Four-star wide receiver Juval Mollette was offered early on by North Carolina. That’s made an impression on his recruitment. “I like their offense and coaches,” Mollette told 247Sports recently at his high school. “(Offensive line) coach (Chris) Kapilovic is a really cool guy. It’s good there. I liked their skills camp and team 7-on-7 when I went there.” (Carolina Blue)

Freeman Jones takes it one kick at a time

Freeman Jones will get his chance to play on the national stage in January at the U.S. Army All-America Game in San Antonio. He accepted his invitation to the nationally televised game last week. Bunn coach David Howle said Freeman is one of the best athletes on the team and in different circumstances probably would be starting at another position, maybe at quarterback. Jones already had accepted a football scholarship offer from North Carolina as a kicker. (Raleigh News & Observer)

Smiling DT Tim Settle serious on the field

Tim Settle was a fixture on the summer camp circuit and so was his omnipresent smile. But put the big defensive tackle – one of the nation’s top prospects for 2015 -- on the football field and you will see somebody who is all business. “I just love to play football,” said Settle, a junior standout at Stonewall Jackson High School in Manassas, Va.
