Three-star all-purpose back lists North Carolina in top-5

Darrian Felix is a 5-foot-11, 194-pound all-purpose back out of Fort Myers, Florida who is considered a three-star prospect and the No. 7 player at his position in the class of 2017.

Felix has cut his list down to five schools including Clemson, Nebraska, North Carolina, Oregon and Tennessee.

Oregon has long been considered the favorite to land Felix, but given the uncertainty surrounding the Oregon program at the moment, it doesn’t seem to be as automatic as it once was.

He received an in-home visit from the University of North Carolina in November and then took a trip to the campus in December.

Felix is a talented athlete with experience at the cornerback and running back positions. With all of the holes that North Carolina has to fill on both sides of the ball, Felix could find a comfortable spot on the UNC roster.
