Mack Brown's return to coach North Carolina has been stamped with some big on-field wins as he tries to bring the Tar Heels back to national prominence.
There was no bigger recruiting victory than last's week, though. That's when the highest-ranked commitment of Brown's era—and the second-highest ever in the internet recruiting era, according to Inside Carolina's Gregory Hall—decided to head to Chapel Hill.
The nation's fourth-ranked overall player, Travis Shaw of Greensboro, North Carolina, pledged to UNC over Georgia, Alabama, Ohio State, Clemson and others.
He is a 6'5", 330-pound force of nature who plays hard, wreaks havoc and is an exceptional athlete for his size. He should team up with guys like Jahvaree Ritzie, Myles Murphy and Keeshawn Silver, who have been huge recruiting wins in recent years.
"He is athletic enough to play all over the defensive line with great production," 247Sports nation analyst Chris Singletary wrote (via Hall). "He is light on his feet and makes plays off the edge and the interior. …Shaw brings athleticism not normally seen in a player his size, which makes for his upside being off the charts."
He's got instant-impact playmaker written all over him.
