North Carolina was thrilled Tuesday when a recruit from Durham, N.C., Emanuel McGirt, gave them the news that he would become a Tar Heel. One may think the 6-6, 275-pound McGirt is an extremely big body for the O-Line, but he joins two other offensive tackles in the Class of 2015 heading to UNC standing at 6-7, 275 pounds and 6-5, 288 pounds.
A strong 2015 class of offensive tackles is big news for UNC, after coming off a year with a below-average rushing game. McGirt is very excited to join the 2015 football campaign for the Heels, and made it public via Twitter:
I'm officially committed to THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA!!!! #TarHeels— Emanuel McGirt Jr. (@Mcgirt7) June 17, 2014
UNC prevailed among a list of impressive schools, including Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, LSU, Miami, and others, according to 247Sports.com.
