The Tar Heels received another commitment for the 2015 class Friday night when center Tommy Hatton officially committed to North Carolina. Inside Carolina first reported the news Friday night.
The 6-foot-3, 280 pound center from Montvale, New Jersey was a much-needed commit for the Tar Heels as he was the only center they targeted for that class. Hatton is the fourth ranked center in the nation according to Scout.com.
Hatton had a series of scheduled visits to schools coming up, but finalized his decision without taking any of those visits. It was down to Maryland and North Carolina for the center who is praised for his hard work and effort. It seemed like Carolina was the best fit for the four-star recruit.
With a center signed, the Tar Heels can now look at other areas of need on their offense. Check back with Keeping it Heel for recruiting information as it breaks.
