CHAPEL HILL

Larry Fedora got his final commitment while he was meeting with the media on National Signing Day. About 10 minutes into his press conference, Fedora got confirmation that Rockledge, Fla., wide receiver Antoine Green had selected North Carolina. That brought a smile to Fedora’s face as he wrapped up the 2018 class with seven new commitments.

“Our staff has done a tremendous job in finishing this class and getting out and building relationships and establishing connections,” Fedora said. “I’m proud of the job that they’ve done and I’m excited about the kids that we added to the roster today. Today was a nice addition to our group.”
