The Barth Era will be hard to forget and replace at North Carolina, but Freeman Jones has great potential to be just as good if not better. The 8th ranked kicker in the country, Freeman Jones signed his National Letter of Intent this morning and is officially a North Carolina Tar Heels.

North Carolina had their fair share of struggles on special teams when it came to field goals and extra points, Jones should be able to come in and provide not only efficiency, but consistency.

Weight: 180 pounds

Height: 6-1

Rank: 8th Positional, 39th State

Rating: Three Star (ESPN)

Hometown: Bunn, North Carolina

Offers: North Carolina

Jones has been a key to the success of Bunn’s special teams and is now on his way to build a name for himself at UNC. The 6-1 place kicker participated in the US Army All-American Bowl and was an Associated Press All-State selection.

The 8th ranked kicker also played for North Carolina in the annual Shrine Bowl against South Carolina.

Coming in off of a scholarship, Jones is expected to compete with Thomas Moore for the job, but more than likely should be the starter.
