Tar Heel coach Larry Fedora recently announced the signing of Carolina's 2012 incoming freshman class. A review of the class can be found at Tarheelblue.com on this link. Lee Pace's story on how the staff found and signed two quarterbacks under difficult circumstances can be found here.
Fedora and his staff are off to a fast start on the class of 2013, getting verbal commitments the second week in February from two highly regarded juniors at Hillside High in Durham. You can read about those commitments here.
The new staff did a commendable job picking up the pieces from the previous staff amid much negative recruiting over potential NCAA sanctions. Fedora is laying the groundwork to reestablish the program's ties in the state of North Carolina and to hopefully slow the exodus of top players to SEC schools.
"We will make that a huge emphasis," Fedora said. "The only way to do that is to build relationships with high school coaches and build relationships with the players you're going to coach. Then you have to put a product on the field that everyone can be proud of, a product that kids see and can say, 'I can reach every dream I have right here, there's no need to go anywhere else.'"
