Six Football Signees Set to Enroll Early at UNC

UNC will welcome six early football enrollees to campus this weekend: wide receiver Dyami Brown, quarterbacks Cade Fortin and Jace Ruder, defensive back Bryson Richardson, running back Javonte Williams, and linebacker Kyle Wright. The group will move into their dorms this weekend. On Tuesday, they will report to the team then begin classes on Wednesday. (Inside Carolina)

UNC in good position to land 4-star OL William Barnes

Offensive lineman William Barnes is one of the best uncommitted recruits at the Army All-American Bowl, and UNC seems to have a leg up on the competition. Barnes was clear about where North Carolina stands. The Tar Heels seem like the unquestioned leader in his recruitment because of his fit in the program and relationship with offensive line coach Chris Kapilovic. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Update on 2018 UNC football recruiting targets

Linebacker Dax Hollifield is still considering UNC and is expected to decide after he visits Stanford in January. Clemson is also making a late push. The Florida Gators are the rumored favorites for offensive tackle William Barnes, but the Tar Heels continue to be involved. WR commit Jordyn Adams is already signed, but there’s a developing story with his baseball career. (Keeping It Heel)

Jordyn Adams will have decision between college or MLB

North Carolina commit Jordyn Adams arrived at the Army All-American Bowl on Sunday as the No. 11-ranked player in the country according to 247Sports. That’s a ranking reserved for NFL locks. Adams certainly fits that bill from a talent perspective but to get to that point, he’ll need to play college football. And for North Carolina, that means surviving the MLB Draft. (247 Sports)

Another batch of December football offers for Tar Heels

UNC was busy on the recruiting trail this month extending offers to football recruits in the 2018, 2019 and 2020 classes: William Harrod, 3-star 2019 OT, Fort Washington, Md.; Jesse Hanson, 3-star 2019 OG, Daleville, Va.; Rahmir Johnson, 4-star 2019 RB, Oradell, N.J.; Drew Little, 2019 DS, New London, N.C.; Jordan Morant, 2020 S, Oradell, N.J.; Fadil Diggs, 2020 DE, Camden, N.J.; (DieHards.com)

Signee 101: Get to know 3-star North Carolina RB Javonte Williams

The Tar Heels have a very young backfield with sophomore Jordon Brown and freshman Michael Carter finishing the 2017 season as the top two rushers for North Carolina, so it appears Javonte Williams will be added strictly for depth initially. He is a prospect a little on the rise, though, as he jumped from being a 2-star to 3-star commit at 247Sports. (DieHards.com)

Stud Wide Receivers Headline UNC's 2018 Class

It wasn't a diving touchdown catch or an electrifying kick return that put Jordyn Adams on the map as a dynamic high school prospect. It was a massive, posterizing dunk shot on an iPhone in a church gym that went viral online announcing Adams's phenomenal athletic ability. On Wednesday, Adams signed with the Heels, officially locked in as the jewel of UNC's 2018 recruiting class. (Inside Carolina)

Tar Heels visit 5-star PF/C Armando Bacot; Mychale Salahuddin names top 5

On Tuesday, Hubert Davis traveled to Richmond, Va., for the Times Dispatch Invitational Tournament. His main target was 5-star power forward/center Armando Bacot, a product of Trinity Episcopal School in Richmond. Bacot put on a show for Davis, too. En route to being named tournament MVP, Bacot scored 26 points while going 7 for 8 from the field. (DieHards.com)

Where Tar Heels will go after early signing period

While college football’s first early signing period isn’t over quite yet, most of the fireworks have ended and North Carolina is almost certainly done. The Tar Heels signed 14 players and have a 15th — 3-star corner DeAndre Hollins — slated to sign in February. That leaves somewhere around 10 slots for North Carolina to fill between now and Feb. 7 National Signing Day. (DieHards.com)

Signee 101: Get to know North Carolina guard Avery Jones

The Tar Heels class contains several high-profile recruits , including three 4-star players from the state of North Carolina. One of those is offensive guard Avery Jones. Jones, rated the 13th-best guard in the country by 247sports, hails from Havelock, North Carolina. Jones committed to UNC over Duke, Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech and in-state rival N.C. State, among others. (DieHards.com)

Former UNC DE Commit Nick Fulwider Signs With Arkansas

On the last day of the Early Signing Period, Arkansas got another player on the defensive side of the ball, one they narrowly missed on in the fall. Nick Fulwider, a defensive lineman from Georgia signed with the Razorbacks. Listed at 6’7” and 250 lbs, Fulwider originally committed to North Carolina.

UNC Football Early Signing Day: Help Wanted 2.0

Cornerback Trey Morrison and safeties Bryson Richardson and Javon Terry join the DBs room for coach Terry Joseph. Perhaps one or three of them can push K.J. Sails, who certainly got excited about some plays he made in 2017. The incoming trio will get plenty of reps in practice and perhaps make waves on special teams as well, even if they don't see the field on defense early. (Argyle Report)
