National Signing Day wasn’t eventful in the sense of drama for the Tar Heels. As early as last week North Carolina was still in the running for several uncommitted prospect but as NSD got closer only Korrin Wiggins a former UNC commit who reopened his recruitment was left as a mystery. By 8:24 am 12 players had already faxed in their letters of intent along with four players who enrolled early made for a busy morning in Chapel Hill. Now that the dust is settled on the Tar Heels recruiting class that ESPN has ranked the 18th best in the nation let’s take a look at the headliners.
Offense: T.J. Logan is a huge in state get for Carolina; he set state records with a 510 yard, eight touchdown performance in the North Carolina 3AA state championship game. Logan is ranked as the fourth best running back in the 2013 class by Rivals and the 87th overall prospect. Logan who put together a terrific overall season rushed for 3,146 yards and 47 touchdowns in 2012, and he also caught 22 passes for 276 yards and five touchdowns. He was named the AP Player of the Year in the state of North Carolina.
Defense: Greg Webb is one of the best defensive tackles in the class and with Sylvester Williams entering the NFL playing time will be up for grabs at the position. Webb has the size and ability to compete early for playing time, but the defensive tackle is still rehabilitating a torn ACL he injured last year.
