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.

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)

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)
