PODCAST: Mack Brown remains on a mission

The Tar Heels now have the nation’s #2 recruiting class...in football.

NCAA Football: Virginia at North Carolina Rob Kinnan-USA TODAY Sports

On a quiet, COVID-19 locked-down Friday afternoon, Mack Brown and the North Carolina coaching staff secured two more commitments for the 2021 class.

Host Chad Floyd and esteemed guest Jake Lawrence (@Chad_Floyd and @therealestrjl on Twitter, btw) had a brief conversation about it.

There was a back-and-forth between marveling at Brown’s efforts, and talking about the merits of the newest commitments, Raneiria Dillworth (who chose the Tar Heels over Alabama) and Jared Wilson (a former Georgia commitment.)

  • Two more scores in-state for the Tar Heels. While the state is on lockdown, is Mack Brown the new Governor?
  • Wilson: a hyper-athletic man for 325 pounds, and how he defies the often difficult high school offensive lineman evaluation process.
  • Dillworth: safety? Linebacker? Swiss Army Knife? How does Jay Bateman plan on deploying guys like him, Gabe Stephens, Ja’Quirious Conley, and Dontavious Nash? (Hint, its gonna be fun.)
  • Do we play two 2021 seasons at this point?

We were brief today, but we needed to laud the fact that Carolina is #2 in the country in football recruiting. If you like us, subscribe. Go Heels.
