PODCAST: Myles Murphy to UNC, and sorting out this D-line class

We’re out of superlatives to describe the 180 in UNC football recruiting under Mack Brown.

Greensboro defensive end Myles Murphy, a composite borderline top-100 overall recruit in the country, committed to North Carolina on Monday.

Of course, that means we had to talk about it!

Host Chad Floyd (@Chad_Floyd) is joined by eternal optimist Jake Lawrence (@therealestRJL) in a quick breakdown of the nation’s #5 strongside defensive end.

Discussed:

  • The staff’s perseverance in winning out a recruitment that long seemed to be a lost cause to South Carolina;
  • The versatility of Jay Bateman’s scheme, and how Carolina could potentially fit seven or eight guys into one defensive line class;
  • A little discussion on those fits, where Sean Martin and A.J. Beatty could be more hybrid DE/LB;
  • And, of course, the token mentions and discussions of Kedrick Bingley-Jones and Desmond Evans, who could create the best defensive line recruiting class since the days of the first Mack Brown era.

Its a fun, lively discussion! If you enjoy it, go ahead and pop over to your favorite podcast app, subscribe and leave a five-star review. We’ll read it on air.

Til next time, Go Heels!
