UNC Football Recruiting

Complete coverage of North Carolina Tar Heels Football Recruiting.



Is 2015 4-star WR Juval Mollette a heavy UNC lean?

Four-star wide receiver Juval Mollette was offered early on by North Carolina. That’s made an impression on his recruitment. “I like their offense and coaches,” Mollette told 247Sports recently at his high school. “(Offensive line) coach (Chris) Kapilovic is a really cool guy. It’s good there. I liked their skills camp and team 7-on-7 when I went there.”

Freeman Jones takes it one kick at a time

Freeman Jones will get his chance to play on the national stage in January at the U.S. Army All-America Game in San Antonio. He accepted his invitation to the nationally televised game last week. Bunn coach David Howle said Freeman is one of the best athletes on the team and in different circumstances probably would be starting at another position, maybe at quarterback. Jones already had accepted a football scholarship offer from North Carolina as a kicker.

1-on-1 With LB commitment Ty Tomlin

Watch Marietta linebacker Ty Tomlin play football, and you'll know exactly why he's nicknamed, "The Phenom." Get to know more about that "Phenom" in my one-on-one with the Marietta senior as he prepares for Friday's rivalry game against the McEachern Indians.

Weekend Football Recruit Scoreboard

North Carolina football commits quarterback Caleb Henderson and running back M.J. Stewart had big statistical weekends for their respective high school teams. See how the rest of the Tar Heel recruits fared in this week's edition of Inside Carolina's Weekend Recruit Scoreboard.

Smiling DT Tim Settle serious on the field

Tim Settle was a fixture on the summer camp circuit and so was his omnipresent smile. But put the big defensive tackle – one of the nation’s top prospects for 2015 -- on the football field and you will see somebody who is all business. “I just love to play football,” said Settle, a junior standout at Stonewall Jackson High School in Manassas, Va.

Recruiting against Tar Heels tough but not impossible

On the eve of basketball prospect Robert Johnson’s announcement of his college choice, I found myself wondering about Virginia’s track record when recruiting against North Carolina. Johnson, a 6-foot-2 point guard from Benedictine in Richmond, has not eliminated any of the four schools he has visited (UVa, UNC, Indiana and Florida State). He’s supposed to reveal his decision Friday at 3:30 p.m. UVa was involved with several Virginians who ended up picking the Tar Heels, most notably J.R. Reid and George Lynch.

Trips to come before decision for OL Donell Stanley

Latta OL Donell Stanley raced down the field with a 90 yard fumble return last week in a win over Aynor. But Stanley is not racing to make a final college decision. According to Latta assistant coach Chris German, Stanley may have an idea about where he wants to go at this point but he plans to take his four official visits before making that decision final. Those visits will be to USC, Clemson, North Carolina and Alabama.

2016 RB Antonio Williams Commits to UNC

Antonio Williams became the first member of North Carolina's 2016 football recruiting class Monday morning when he committed to the Tar Heels. Williams (5'10", 180), from North Stanly High School in New London, NC, is one of the top running backs in the state and among the top overall recruits in the 2016 class. Williams has not yet received a rating from any of the major recruiting services since he is just beginning his sophomore season, but other schools offering Williams included Georgia, South Carolina, Clemson, and NC State.

Freshman Season Highlights:

Larry Fedora makes grand helicopter entrance on local recruiting stop

Lincolnton coach Scott Cloninger felt like he must have talked to everyone from UNC except the chancellor to work out the details for Larry Fedora’s grand entrance to Friday’s game. After all the phone calls and a fairly well-kept secret, the UNC football coach arrived at Lincolnton via helicopter for Friday’s game against East Gaston. Earlier in the evening, Fedora landed at South Point High School on a big night of in-state recruiting visits.

Weekend Football Recruit Scoreboard

North Carolina football commits wide receiver Josh Cabrera, linebacker Cayson Collins, and tight end Avery Edwards each had big statistical weekends for their respective high school teams. See how other UNC's recruits performed in this week's edition of Inside Carolina's Weekend Recruit Scoreboard.

2015 DT Shy Tuttle with two teams standing out

The top overall prospect in the Carolinas, elite defensive tackle Shy Tuttle, has two programs that stick out. “I like North Carolina and Alabama,” Tuttle told 247Sports Friday evening before his season opener at his high school. “I also Clemson and Tennessee, but I like those two a lot.” What stands out about the Tar Heels and Crimson Tide for the Lexington (NC) North Davidson standout?

UNC offers 2016 LB Jonathan Pollock

Dr. Phillips sophomore Jonathan Pollock committed to Mississippi State’s 2016 recruiting class during the summer break, but that doesn’t mean the recruiters are going to stop calling on the 6-foot, 205-pounder. His first offer came from Akron last winter and things started picking up again this week when North Carolina came calling.

Lorenzo Featherston selected to Under Armour All-American High School Football Game

Greensboro Page's Lorenzo Featherston was selected to the 2014 Under Armour All-American High School Football Game Tuesday. Featherston, a 6-foot-7, 220-pound defensive end, was one of three North Carolina players invited to the game. The all-star game will take place at 4 p.m. on Jan. 2 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. Featherston is rated as one of the top remaining unsigned recruits in the state and has received scholarship offers from a long list of schools, including Clemson, North Carolina, N.C. State and Tennessee.

DT Shy Tuttle sidelined with shoulder injury

Shy Tuttle, a highly recruited defensive lineman at North Davidson, separated his left shoulder during last week’s 22-10 victory against Asheboro, Coach Mark Holcomb of North said. Tuttle, a junior, batted down a pass during the third quarter and immediately headed for the sideline, his left arm drooping. Tuttle, a 6-3, 295-pounder, is the most highly recruited player in the area with close to 20 scholarship offers, including many from ACC and SEC programs. It’s unlikely that he will play Friday night against Lexington.

Weekend Football Recruit Scoreboard

North Carolina football running back commits Elijah Hood and M.J. Stewart had big statistical weekends for their respective high school teams this weekend. See how the Tar Heels' other recruits fared at Inside Carolina's "Weekend Recruit Scoreboard."
