Clint's Carolina Recruiting Roundup
To say that UNC is in good shape with the elite kids in the class of 2008 is to say that hurricanes are windy rain storms. In other words, it's the understatement of the year. The outlook for UNC with the elite juniors in the nation is nothing short of spectacular.
The future is indeed bright, and the forecast is Carolina Blue.

And as to whether he's offered a verbal commitment to the Heels yet? He hasn't.
He tells CarolinaBlue.com that he'll let everyone know of his decision at the end of the season. The perfect response from a kid who's giving all of his focus to his high school team and their run at the Ohio state title. But make no mistake about it -- all signs point to Chapel Hill for the prospect with an impeccable work ethic, an insanely positive outlook and jaw-dropping athleticism.

He's well-spoken, intelligent and has an amazing presence of character.
Be excited Heel fans. Good news is on the horizon here.
