UNC Gets First Commitment From Class of 2016

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

It's a College Football Eve miracle!

UNC got a much needed basketball commitment on Wednesday night when Tony Bradley, Jr., a 6-10, 230 lb center out of Bartow Senior HS in Bartow, FL announced via Twitter he was committing the North Carolina to play basketball.

Bradley is ranked between 26-31 by ESPN, 247Sports, Yahoo! Rivals and Scout.

There is really no overstating how important this commitment is for the 2016 class. UNC recruiting has been stuck in a prolonged funk with Kentucky and Duke sucking the proverbial oxygen out of the room. The shift in dynamics and the NCAA cloud has kept the recruits away. Bradley's commitment is a breakthrough of sorts and could open the door for other recruits to take the plunge.

Let's check in on Roy Williams right now.
