Don’t Punt to Gio: May Recruiting Update

A quick look at where the Class of 2020 stands with at least 7 months before they sign.

In a last-minute decision to jump on and podcast, host Chad Floyd and guest Akil Gurupuran wax as poetic as they can (again, with zero planning) about the Tar Heels’ recruiting efforts for the 2020 class, thus far.

Discussed:

  • While the Heels rank 10th in the country in 247Sports team rankings, that is only good for fourth in the ACC. The absurdity of Clemson’s class, the surprise of Georgia Tech’s, and the lol’s at Virginia Tech’s are included.
  • Way-too-early class superlatives! Who is the most underrated? Best? (Again, 8 months before signing day.)
  • The offensive side of the ball is shaping up, how will the Heels round it out?
  • The big, can’t miss names on defense.

We ran into a little audio quality issue late in the podcast, as my Wi-Fi decided it wanted to take periodic breaks as we recorded. (Personal note: it helped me miss the Hurricanes, Braves, and Hornets all taking simultaneous L’s, so not the worst thing.) My apologies to those pining for the linebackers and defensive backs segments.
