CHAPEL HILL — North Carolina coach Larry Fedora, above, spoke with a sense of pride earlier today about the Tar Heels’ 23-man recruiting class. It’s a class that perhaps turned out about as well as could be expected, given Fedora and his staff had about a month to put it together – and given that the NCAA has yet to rule on the impermissible benefits and academic fraud scandals that rocked the UNC football program in 2010.
Still, despite the challenges, the Tar Heels closed strongly. Quinshad Davis, whom Rivals.com ranks as the No. 34 receiver in the country – and the second-best prospect overall in South Carolina – signed with UNC on Wednesday. So, too, did James Summers, the Greensboro Page High quarterback who last week switched his commitment from N.C. State.
