I tend not to follow recruiting all that much, mostly because I do not have time and I tend to be more interested in the players when they actually show up and wear Tar Heel blue. That being said I did have a reader email me saying that I should make quick mention concerning Butch Davis completely living up to his hype in respect to recruiting by bringing in several highly rated players. At least a few of these came at the last minute including Durham Hillside’s Greg Little(who decommitted from Notre Dame and then signed the LOI with UNC) and the #1 DT in the nation, Marvin Austin. Scout.com has the class ranked 15th overall which is excellent considering the late jump Davis got on recruiting this class.
UNC is probably at least two years off from reaping any benefits from this class but the program is defintely turned in the right direction.
