In addition to Sweet, UNC had three start linebacker Andre Smith, also from Jacksonville, FL, sign for early enrollment. Smith, a 6-0, 220 lb player is ranked 28th at middle linebacker by and had a handful of offers from Power 5 conference schools.

The confirmation of Sweet and Smith gives UNC seven four star recruits in the class of 2015. Three of those are on the defensive side(two DL and one LB) and two are offensive linemen. Along with recent signee Jalen Dalton, UNC is making headway in recruiting areas of need in the first cycle with scholarship limitations lifted.
