Clark (Avon, CT/Avon Old Farm) is a 6-foot-6, 247-pound prospect and is currently committed to the University of Michigan.

Wisconsin closing in on former UNC RB commit Antonio Williams, current UNC RB commit Ty'Son Williams

Williams, a four-star prospect from Sumter (Crestwood), S.C., was another North Carolina commitment in Madison last weekend, joining three-star inside linebacker Andre Smith. As it stands, Williams isn't as fast as Cole or Stevenson, but he definitely feels like a better version of Ke'Shawn Vaughn in that he's a more powerful version of a versatile back with a reported 4.48-second 40-yard dash time.

2015 LB Andre Smith changes commitment status

Nebraska is in good position for recently decommitted linebacker Andre Smith. The Trinity Christian linebacker decided on Thursday to back away from his previous year-long commitment to North Carolina. The Huskers are one of four teams that Smith is now considering, including North Carolina, Wisconsin and Miami. He tweeted out the order of things as it stands currently. (Huskers Illustrated)

Fedora getting recruits despite bad publicity

Since the first day on the job as North Carolina's head football coach, Larry Fedora has been dealing with the impact of NCAA investigations and academic probes that would have stymied the recruiting for many programs. It has made the recruiting process doubly difficult for Fedora and his coaching staff. But the way they've dealt with those obstacles has produced some surprising and impressive results.

Jalen Dalton Signs With Tar Heels

The University of North Carolina has signed a scholarship agreement with defensive lineman Jalen Dalton who will enroll in January 2015, upon completion of his high school degree. A native of Winston-Salem, N.C., Dalton (6-5, 235 pounds) attends West Forsyth High School and is considered by most recruiting analysts as one of the top three players in the state. (GoHeels.com)

What Jalen Dalton's commitment means for UNC

In a season full of disappointments on the field and in recruiting, North Carolina securing the commitment of 247Sports five-star defensive end Jalen Dalton is a glimmer of hope and small victory for a program bogged down with negative recruiting and on-the-field struggles. In the larger landscape, the Dalton commitment today provides the hope that UNC is able to lock down at least some of the best talent in the state. It is a testament to the coaching staff and their recruiting abilities. (Carolina Blue)

4-Star DE Jalen Dalton Chooses UNC

Four-star prospect Jalen Dalton announced his verbal commitment to North Carolina during a press conference at West Forsyth High School on Thursday, opening his jacket to reveal UNC gear underneath. Dalton, a 6-foot-6, 240-pound defensive end, selected UNC over co-finalist Virginia Tech, as well as a slew of other schools that have offered, including Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, Florida State, Miami, Ohio State, and Tennessee. (Inside Carolina)

DE Jalen Dalton commits to UNC

Defensive end Jalen Dalton (Clemmons, N.C./West Forsyth) committed to North Carolina over Virginia Tech at a press conference at his high school Thursday. Dalton said his family liked Chapel Hill when he took an official visit there in October. “My mom and brother liked it,” Dalton said. “I liked the Business center.” Dalton has more reasons why he chose North Carolina. “It’s a home vibe,” Dalton said. “Not too far away. I like the coaching staff. The defensive line coach (Keith Gilmore) is real high on me.” (247 Sports)
