UNC Football: Tar Heels offer a pair of 2021 recruits

The UNC Football program has sent out two offers to recruits in the 2021 recruiting class on Friday afternoon as Mack Brown looks to build up the class

Mack Brown and his coaching staff put together an impressive recruiting class for the 2020 cycle, signing 25 of their 26 recruits in the Early Signing Period. 13 of those recruits are early enrollees and the lone unsigned commit, Elijah Burris, plans on signing during February’s period.

With that class is ranked in the Top 20, Brown and his staff are now working on their 2021 recruiting class which has one commit in Dontavius Nash. Brown and his staff have 95 offers out to recruits in 2021 with 15 of those players already committed somewhere.

The two latest offers came on Friday morning when defensive end Alex Okelo and Kyndrich Breedlove both announced they received offers from the program:


Okelo now has four offers in his recruitment and is starting to get noticed in this 2021 recruiting class. He also picked up offers from Florida State, Tennessee and Louisville on Friday morning, earning all four of those offers in one day.

The defensive end is an intriguing prospect at 6-foot-5 and 205-pounds. He’s listed as a defensive end but plays both sides of the football in high school.

As for Breedlove, he’s a three-star recruit that is out of Nashville and is ranked as the No. 29th overall player in the state of Tennessee. He has a total of 12 offers including from Auburn, Mississippi State, LSU, Memphis, Tennessee, South Carolina, and Virginia Tech among others.
