The recruiting efforts of Larry Fedora and his North Carolina football coaching staff has turned many heads since they began running the program in 2012. Now, they have some big time five-star recruiting showing some serious interest in their program.
Five-star defensive tackle Tim Settle is the eight ranked player for 2015, and is the number two ranked player for his position. The best part about that isn’t how talented he is, because he is one of the most talented players in the class. The best part is the fact that he has a ton of interest in coming to Chapel Hill.
The 6’3″ and 307 pound tackle has received nine offers: Alabama, North Carolina, Ohio State, (Deke Adams who left UNC for USC has been recruiting him for Spurrier) South Carolina, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Wisconsin, Clemson, and Old Dominion.
Settle is planning to visit Chapel Hill this summer and meet with the team and coaches.
Settle on North Carolina:
“I really love North Carolina. I love them that much. You can get a great degree there and it’s a great place to play ball. There’s no drama around that school anymore and it’s just a really good place to be.”
Settle on Coach Walt Bell:
“I call Coach Bell every week. I love my man Walt and the University of North Carolina. Everything is great with that situation.”
