Green is a 6-foot-2, 175-pound hard-hitting free safety from Hopewell, VA. He was the Heels first offer, coming in Week 2, and committed on the spot.

"The coaches told me I had the opportunity to come in and start right away," Green said. "I also like what Coach Taylor is doing here. That win over Kentucky was very impressive."

Mike Farrel, Atlantic East analyst for, took some time to describe Green's game.

"He has average Speed for a safety, I would guess about a B," Farrel said. "But where this guy really impresses me is in his Man Coverage ability. It is without a doubt an A+, and there may not be anyone in the country better at shutting down a big-time receiver than this guy. He's like a blanket."

The Tar Heels are also rumored to have extended a few more offers during Week 3, but is still trying to reach the prospects for confirmation.

With only 13 more available scholarships, don't expect a flood of offers anytime soon. Recruiting Insider Empty Re: Recruiting Insider on Thu Jan 28, 2010 3:38 pm

ANALYST was willing to give a small scouting report on Nicholas.

"He has good speed and acceleration for a guy his age, both a B+," ANALYST said. "He's really going to be successful in that offense that Coach Parker is running up there. He's going to need to work on his Awareness to be a star at the next level though."

As we reported last week, Like a Star @ heavenLike a Star @ heavenLike a Star @ heavenLike a Star @ heaven CB Caleb Newton was a soft commit to UNC. This week, he reaffirmed that commitment, and became the third member of the Tar Heels' 2010 class.

"It feels great," Newton said. "After my visit, I knew this was where I wanted to be, I just had to talk to my parents first."

The 6-foot-1, 189-pound Newton, from Bothell, WA, is the #6 CB in the nation. Here with his analysis of Newton is Rick Krimbel,'s West Analyst.

"The Tar Heels got a future All-ACC player in Caleb Newton," Krimbel said. "His B+ Speed, B+ Agility, and A- Acceleration all make him a guy who won't get beat deep, and his B- Man and Zone Coverage will certainly improve in his time at UNC."

The biggest news of the day was not the commitment of Newton, but rather the commitment of Like a Star @ heavenLike a Star @ heavenLike a Star @ heavenLike a Star @ heaven Eric Landry. Landry is the #10 QB in the nation, and already had offers from Oklahoma and Notre Dame, as well as heavy interest from Texas, Georgia and Florida, among others.

Landry is a 6-foot-1, 203-pound Pocket Passer from Thomson, GA. Here with a scouting report is Jamie Newberg,'s Southeast analyst.

"This commitment really surprises me," Newberg said. "An elite quarterback like Landry could have gone anywhere he wanted, and chose UNC early in the season. His B+ Throw Power has him among the nation's best, and his C Throw Accuracy and D- Awareness will certainly improve under Coach Parker's watch. He's a raw talent. This commitment just shows where the Tar Heels program is headed."

The Tar Heels jumped into the Top 10 classes in the nation this week, coming in at #8. However, this rating does not reflect the commitment of Landry, which may propel them into the Top 5.
