OL Brad Henson switches commitment from Virginia to North Carolina

ACC Coastal Impact Recruits

North Carolina - T.J. Logan, RB, Greensboro (N.C.) Northern Guilford: Gio Bernard’s departure will give Logan an incredible opportunity in Chapel Hill. The 5-feet-11, 175-pounder, ranked as the No. 10 player nationally at his position, is a perfect fit for North Carolina's wide open offense. He not only is blessed with great, home run-hitting speed, but has terrific one-cut ability and good hands out of the backfield. (Carolina Blue)

The best football recruiters in the ACC

Who is hot and who is not on the recruiting trail so far this year? Two ACC assistants made the cut. Deke Adams, North Carolina defensive line coach; James Coley, Florida State offensive coordinator/tight ends coach. None of this should come as much of a surprise. Right now, Florida State and North Carolina have the top two recruiting classes in the ACC. (ESPN.com)

Q&A with QB Mitch Trubisky

Was there any pressure put on you to remain in (your home) state and become a Buckeye? Mitch Trubisky: "Well, there kind of was. They had a quarterback commit before I was ready to commit so after they had their quarterback, I started to look elsewhere. I found North Carolina and I really liked it, I love the system and the coaches and I was ready to pull the trigger at that time so I decided on North Carolina. There has been some pressure back and forth but I am very pleased with my decision." (Keeping It Heel)

UNC commit Mitch Trubisky's visit to local Ohio family very special

I am overwhelmed right now with the kindness of the Trubiskys. Driving from Mentor to Hudson on a school night, the day after being named Mr. Football, to me is the definition of compassion. Mitch Trubisky is my boys’ hero. And tonight, he showed them that heroes are people that not only have special talents, but they also go out of their way to help others and try to make them feel happy and special. Mitch is a role model for all children. (News-Herald)

Ryan Switzer is beyond reach of all others

Ryan Switzer didn't win his first game in high school. He didn't win his last, either. Between 2009 and 2012, however, there was plenty of winning for the 5-foot-9, 175-pound do-nearly-everything star from George Washington High School. At least one more victory has been bestowed on the University of North Carolina recruit, adding to the 43 he enjoyed on the field during his run as a four-year starter for the Patriots.
