Complete coverage of North Carolina Football Recruiting.

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.

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)

1-on-1 With LB commitment Ty Tomlin

Watch Marietta linebacker Ty Tomlin play football, and you'll know exactly why he's nicknamed, "The Phenom." Get to know more about that "Phenom" in my one-on-one with the Marietta senior as he prepares for Friday's rivalry game against the McEachern Indians. (Georgia Public Broadcasting)

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. (Carolina Blue)

Recruiting against Tar Heels tough but not impossible

On the eve of basketball prospect Robert Johnson’s announcement of his college choice, I found myself wondering about Virginia’s track record when recruiting against North Carolina. Johnson, a 6-foot-2 point guard from Benedictine in Richmond, has not eliminated any of the four schools he has visited (UVa, UNC, Indiana and Florida State). He’s supposed to reveal his decision Friday at 3:30 p.m. UVa was involved with several Virginians who ended up picking the Tar Heels, most notably J.R. Reid and George Lynch. (Roanoke Times)

Trips to come before decision for OL Donell Stanley

Latta OL Donell Stanley raced down the field with a 90 yard fumble return last week in a win over Aynor. But Stanley is not racing to make a final college decision. According to Latta assistant coach Chris German, Stanley may have an idea about where he wants to go at this point but he plans to take his four official visits before making that decision final. Those visits will be to USC, Clemson, North Carolina and Alabama. (GoGamecocks.com)

2016 RB Antonio Williams Commits to UNC

Antonio Williams became the first member of North Carolina's 2016 football recruiting class Monday morning when he committed to the Tar Heels. Williams (5'10", 180), from North Stanly High School in New London, NC, is one of the top running backs in the state and among the top overall recruits in the 2016 class. Williams has not yet received a rating from any of the major recruiting services since he is just beginning his sophomore season, but other schools offering Williams included Georgia, South Carolina, Clemson, and NC State.

Freshman Season Highlights:

Larry Fedora makes grand helicopter entrance on local recruiting stop

Lincolnton coach Scott Cloninger felt like he must have talked to everyone from UNC except the chancellor to work out the details for Larry Fedora’s grand entrance to Friday’s game. After all the phone calls and a fairly well-kept secret, the UNC football coach arrived at Lincolnton via helicopter for Friday’s game against East Gaston. Earlier in the evening, Fedora landed at South Point High School on a big night of in-state recruiting visits. (Gaston Gazette)
