UNC Football commit dominates in Keep Pounding High School Classic

The UNC football commit put together a dominant performance as he led his team to victory in the first annual Keep Pounding High School Classic.

In his season-opening game, Jordan Shipp showed why the UNC football program put so much effort into recruiting him to Chapel Hill.

As part of the first-ever Keep Pounding High School Classic at Bank of America Stadium, home of the Carolina Panthers, Shipp put together a performance to remember to kick off his senior season of high school.

The current four-star wide receiver ended the night with 13 catches for 234 yards and three touchdowns as his school, Providence Day, held on to defeat Northwestern by a score of 42-35. Shipp and his quarterback, Michigan commit Jadyn Davis, simply put on a show, as the future Tar Heel was responsible for hauling in over half of Davis’ 450 passing yards on the night.

Shipp went on to earn MVP honors for the game, and rightly so. In the first-ever edition of this high school classic, Providence Day, led by Davis and Shipp, put on a show that will be remembered for quite some time.

The UNC football program has a very-talented Class of 2024 already in place, as four in-state wide receiver prospects are a big part of it. Shipp showed what he is capable of, as he’s making a very strong case to be considered the most complete wide receiver prospect among the group.

After his opening night performance, Jordan Shipp is definitely a UNC football commit to keep an eye on this season. Based on what we saw, the future Tar Heel could be destined for a historic season as he wraps up his high school career.
