UNC Football Recruiting: Tar Heels Heavily Persuing 4 Star Tackle


Larry Fedora and his coaching staff have already begun making moves in the football recruiting class of 2015. That includes letting four-star tackle Grant Newsome know that they are serious about wanting him in Chapel Hill.

So far in the early stages of recruiting, Newsome has received offers from Duke, North Carolina, Old Dominion, Penn State, Rutgers, Temple, Virginia, and Wake Forest. The Mclean, Virginia native is being heavily pursued by schools in North Carolina and its clear that someone in this state wants to have him. So far the Tar Heels have been the one to impress him the most.

“UNC has definitely shown a lot interest,” Newsome told 247sports.com’s Tom Loy. “They’ve reached out, sent some letters, sent some stuff on Twitter and Facebook and stuff like that. I’m told that I’m one of the top guys for my class. They’ve been coming harder than most schools.”

It’s very early on, and while he got his UNC offer back in July, Newsome is in no rush to make a decision. He wants to think it all through and make sure he goes where he will fit best. Until then, you can bet Fedora is going to be recruiting him as hard as he can trying to land his four-star services.
