Larry Fedora has been active on the recruiting trail with several offers sent out over the last few days. North Carolina extended an official offer to 2019 tight end Larry Hodges. The three-star recruit is from Tampa, Florida and is the 12th-best player at his position. 2019 cornerback Kaiir Elam was also offered. He is a four-star recruit from North Palm Beach, Florida and is the eighth-best prospect at his position. UNC has offered 2019 offensive guard Caedan Wallace. He hails from Princeton, New Jersey and ranks seventh overall at his position.

On Monday, three-star cornerback Steven Gilmore was supposed to announce his commitment, but his plans have clearly changed because no decision was ever announced. The South Carolina native was expected to decide between North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Louisville, but many of them don’t seem to have room for him anymore.

Scout.com reports that North Carolina is trying to make room for him. UNC offered him over the summer, but then picked up three-star athlete Trey Morrison, three-star safety Javon Terry, and three-star cornerback DeAndre Hollins. Gilmore is considered to be the 101st cornerback in the class of 2018.

Roy Williams has been putting in work out on the recruiting trail. After several home visits last week, he’s continued the fun this week. As we mentioned before, he paid a visit to 5-star 2019 power forward Matthew Hurt and small forward Zion Williamson, and both proved successful. Hurt is schedule to visit Chapel Hill on October 20 and Williamson will schedule an official visit with UNC.

Williams also visited four-star 2020 point guard Jalen Johnson at his home in Wisconsin. He met with 2018 shooting guard Romeo Langford, who will now be attending Late Night with Roy on October 13. He also paid a visit to Nassir Little in Orlando, Florida.
