With the Army game ending on such a disappointing note, the upcoming recruiting weekend becomes that much more important to North Carolina.
According to InsideCarolina.com, five players are visiting (it would have been six but Clemson commitment Tavaris Barnes says he has cancelled his trip), and the site reports that all five have been offered. Of those five, three are out-of-state cornerbacks—Christian Bryant of Glenville High in Cleveland, Dequan Menzie of Copiah-Lincoln High in Wesson, Ms., and Tre Boston of North Ft. Myers (Fla.) High.
The first two are rated as four-star players (out of five) by Scout.com; while Boston gets three.
The other two visits fall to OLB Darius Lipford of Lenoir Hibriten, who visited Clemson over the weekend but remains committed to UNC, and to former Tar Heels’ commit Reggie Wilkins, an athlete who jumped to N.C. State but is now supposedly wavering in that commitment.
It will be interesting to see what this weekend produces—the Tar Heels’ Class of 2010 needs an upgrade.
