Salisbury's Morris commits to UNC

Romar Morris, one of the top high school football prospects in the state and one of the fastest, committed to the University of North Carolina on Monday.

The 5-foot-10, 170-pound senior ran for 1,330 yards and scored 17 touchdowns in 2009 at Salisbury High.

He has run 40 yards in 4.32 seconds and set NCHSAA 2-A records in the 100 (10.54) and the 200 (21.47) during the 2-A championship meet in the spring. He led Salisbury to the track title.

Morris and Salisbury senior safety Darian Rankin, who had already committed to UNC, helped the Hornets to a 10-5 record in 2009 and to the N.C. High School Athletic Association 2-AA Western Regional championship game.

Morris is the ninth player on the rivals.com top 30 seniors list in North Carolina to pick the Tar Heels this year. Rivals.com ranks Morris as the 10th-best all-purpose back in the country and the 18th-best prospect in North Carolina.

Salisbury assistant principal Christopher Wayne McNeil confirmed that Morris had made his commitment. Morris earlier had said he had narrowed his choice to UNC or Georgia Tech

Anon @ 6:42: Pay attention!! The NCAA investigation has nothing to do with the program - only individuals who may have made some poor decisions. And it's spelled "screeching" not screaching. Idiot...

You know this just kills the Charlotte Disturber with JP Gigilo and Ken Trysic to report good recuriting for the Tarheels. Old Crustan Tudor is searching for bad news to report. Poor Opie will take a thrashing this year and the "Best program in the State" will struggle to another losing season. Good day to be a Tarheel.
