UNC Football: Two class of 2017 players commit to Tar Heels

Monday was a big night for UNC’s  2017 football recruiting class

While the North Carolina Tar Heels are searching for their fifth-straight win on the basketball court, the school’s football team got some big commits.

The Tar Heels landed two verbal commitments in the 2017 recruiting class, giving them a total of 19 for their class.

First it was Texas wide receiver Beau Corrales who announced he was committing to UNC. The three-star recruit from Georgetown High School in Georgetown, Texas is the third wide receiver to commit to UNC in the 2017 class.

Here’s what he posted on Twitter:

Not more than 45 minutes later, the Tar Heels got another big recruit for their class.

Offensive tackle Jordan Tucker also announced his verbal commitment to the Tar Heels. The 6-foot-7, 350-pound offensive lineman is out of Georgia and has the type of size UNC is looking for on its offensive line.

Like Corrales, Tucker also announced it via Twitter:

Tucker is the fifth-offensive lineman to commit to UNC in the 2017 class. The Tar Heels also have 6-foot-6 tackle Marcus McKethan committed.

Tucker was on UNC’s campus this weekend along with a lot of other recruits. He had nothing but good things to say about his visit and less than 48 hours later he made his decision.
