Defensive tackle Jeremiah Clarke (6'5", 275) from T.C. Williams high school (of "Remember the Titans" fame) in Alexandria, Virginia, became North Carolina's third football commitment of the weekend when he joined Georgia safeties Allen Artis and Cam Albright in committing to the Tar Heels Sunday after attending UNC's "Freak Show" elite camp on Saturday night.

Clarke is rated a 4-star recruit by Scout.com and a 3-star recruit by both Rivals.com and 247 Sports. He becomes the 13th member of UNC's 2014 football recruiting class and the eighth defensive commitment.

Demornay Pierson-El commits to Nebraska

When Demornay Pierson-El arrived Saturday for the Big Red Weekend, he chose not to initially hang out with fellow prospects in Nebraska’s game room. Instead, he walked into the conference room and had a one-on-one meeting with NU coach Bo Pelini. That meeting helped lead Pierson-El, a 5-foot-9, 172-pound three-star prospect from Alexandria (Va.) West Potomac High School to become NU’s ninth commit (Omaha World-Herald)

Georgia Safeties Cam Albright, Allen Artis Commit to UNC

North Carolina landed much-needed help in its defensive secondary Saturday night at Larry Fedora's "Freak Show" football camp when 3-star Georgia safety Cam Albright (Kennsaw, GA) committed to the Tar Heels. Shortly afterwards, Allen Artis (Marietta, GA), who wasn't in attendance at the camp, also pulled the trigger for UNC.

Albright and Artis are the 11th and 12th commitments in the Tar Heels' 2014 football recruiting class and are both rated among the top-100 rising seniors in the state of Georgia. North Carolina now has three safety commits for 2014 (Ayden Bonilla committed last week) and seems be done recruiting the position for this cycle.

2014 Safety Ayden Bonilla Commits to North Carolina

Ayden Bonilla wasted little time in accepting North Carolina's scholarship offer which was extended to him after attending UNC's summer football camp over the weekend. Bonilla, a 6'2", 200-pound safety from Etowah high school in Woodstock, Georgia, notified the Tar Heel staff of his commitment after returning home from camp on Monday, according to multiple sources.

Bonilla, whose highlights can be viewed at Hudl.com, is rated a 2-star recruit by both Scout.com and Rivals.com. He becomes the tenth member of UNC's 2014 football recruiting class.

2014 DE Tyler Powell commits to UNC

Defensive end Tyler Powell (6'4", 255, Midlothian, VA) committed to North Carolina on Monday, according to multiple sources. Powell is currently rated a 2-star prospect by Scout.com and a 3-star prospect by 247 Sports, although those ratings will almost certainly rise due to his strong performance on the summer camp circuit.

Powell was recently named defensive line MVP at the College Prep World Football Camp, and he will likely attend UNC's "Freak Show" on June 15th, a camp for some of the Tar Heels' most highly-prized recruits. Powell also had scholarship offers from West Virginia, Michigan State, and Wisconsin, among others.

Florida Safety Reggan Northrup Lists UNC in Top-Two

According to Reggan Northrup, "Right now, the top two would probably be Rutgers and North Carolina." Northrup broke down some of the factors in solidifying the Scarlet Knights and Tar Heels as his two favorite collegiate football programs at the moment. UNC: "I just like the fact that when I went over there and visited, they made me feel like I was really at home. I know a couple of players there. I really like the city. It's nice college life there. It's someplace I can see myself at for four years." (NJ.com)
