UNC Recruiting: Week of 11/5

New, comments

Another football commitment! And one more Tar Heel target’s commitment date draws near.

NCAA Basketball: North Carolina at Wofford Joshua S. Kelly-USA TODAY Sports

Another week, another (checks notes) football commitment! That’s an unfamiliar feeling around here. No news on the basketball side aside from what we’ve already discussed, but there’s room for recaps here. On we go:

Football:

  • Larry Fedora and his staff secured a commitment from 2019 three-star wide receiver Jerrod Means (no known relation to Natrone). His recruiting ranking isn’t as gaudy as that of last week’s pledge Elijah Burris, but interest from Georgia is nothing to sneeze at.
  • Kelly Bryant was on campus for an official visit over the weekend, which, if you’re keeping count, is two visits in short order. Something could come of this. Whether or not that’s a good thing... we’ve argued both sides.

Basketball

  • We have an article up on Roy Williams’ newest offer, 4-star power forward/stretch big Zeke Nnadi. Go check it out for more information, but the gist of it is that he has a top 5 not including UNC, but Roy Williams has enough clout with him that he and his family were willing to listen to his pitch regardless of all that. It’s noteworthy that his decision date of late November-early December hasn’t changed after the offer, but earlier today, he did announce that he and his family will be taking an unofficial visit to UNC's campus next weekend. This could have legs, but it'll definitely resolve quickly so we'll know more soon either way.
  • Boogie Ellis will announce his commitment this Friday and more and more smoke has come from the camp that believes he will choose Duke. Assuming that’s true, UNC is pinning its 1-2 guard hopes next year on the hopes that Coby White stays past his freshman year, which we’ll be evaluating throughout the season, and the possibility of landing Cole Anthony, which is going to be difficult.
  • There isn’t much to report at the moment about Keion Brooks’ official visit. He doesn’t have a timetable for committing right now, so we’ll keep you posted about him. Vernon Carey was also on the visit, and, just like before it, there isn’t really any expectation that he will commit to UNC.
