The Tar Heels are getting their first wide receiver in the recruiting class of 2018 with four-star Dyami Brown committing this week. Considering the loss of talent the program has suffered this offseason, UNC is definitely in need of some reinforcements there. The incoming 2017 class doesn’t have the depth at the receiver position that they will need to refill the roster, so expect them to go big there this year.
Dyami Brown made his decision over a top five that included Virginia Tech, Ohio State, Michigan and Alabama. He first visited campus in November before showing up again for Junior Day in March. He officially announced his commitment on Twitter on the 25th.
The Charlotte native ranks 198th on the national composite. He is also considered to be the 10th-best athlete in the 2018 class and is the no. 9 prospect from the state of North Carolina. During his high school career, Brown was a wide receiver, running back, and defensive back. His six-foot-two, 180-pound frame helped him make 54 receptions for 1,012 yards and 12 touchdowns, 43 carries for 324 yards and two scores, as well as 49 tackles and three interceptions in his junior year.
Despite his versatility, Brown is considered to be a wide receiver first and foremost. Scout.com believes he has potential no matter where he plays, with great speed, body control, and ball handling skills that should make him a threat on the field for years to come.
