Fast start for UNC in college football recruiting

College football recruiting rankings shouldn’t be taken too seriously – after all, Russell Wilson earned a mere two stars out of Richmond, Va. – but even so, North Carolina is off to a fast start this year when it comes to landing football talent.

Committing to UNC Monday was running back Romar Morris of Salisbury, who is listed at 5 feet 10 and 170 pounds. Both The N&O and InsideCarolina are reporting the commitment. Morris ran for 1,300 yards and 17 touchdowns as a junior and also ran the 100-meter dash in 10.54 seconds in the state 2-A championship meet.

The Tar Heels already have 17 commitments before high school football season starts. That’s a huge number, considering that a school can’t sign more than 25 players in a given year and most recruiting classes are around 20-22 prospects.

UNC has commitments from one five-star recruit (offensive lineman Kiaro Holts out of Indianapolis), four four-star recruits and 11 three-star players, according to Scout.com.

The Heels have a whopping 10 players out of North Carolina.

N.C. State, by comparison, has five commitments total. Three are two-star commitments and the other two are not rated.

Keep in mind that players can not sign binding letters of intent until February.
