Top UNC football recruiting target taking visit to Ohio State


Mack Brown and the UNC football program currently has a top 25 recruiting class for the 2023 cycle as we hit the Fall season. The Tar Heels have a total of 19 commitments but still have offers out to top recruits in the class.

And arguably the top target left for UNC is four-star in-state defensive lineman Daevin Hobbs.

The Concord, North Carolina product is a big-time recruit that is ranked No. 137 nationally and has racked up 26 offers.  He was on UNC's campus over the Summer and also made visits to Auburn and Tennessee, with more to Georgia and Alabama still scheduled.

But it appears as if a new contender is in the picture, making for some tough competition.

Ohio State recently offered Hobbs this week and now the recruit is taking an unofficial visit to Columbus this weekend:

The Buckeyes are a premier program and will add to an impressive list of offers that Hobbs has already received.

As it stands now, UNC has the lead in the crystal ball predictor on 247Sports, holding the only prediction from Briah Dohn with a confidence of seven. But when a team like the Buckeyes enter the race, it means things could be changing.

Back in 2009, Brown, then the head coach at Texas, invited Swinney - who had just been hired at Clemson - and his staff to Austin to observe how he ran the Longhorns' football program.

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) TCU has been in this position before, third in the College Football Playoff rankings going into its last game before the final four teams are set. Undefeated TCU has a Big 12 championship game to play, and the best the Buckeyes can do is try to tout what they had already done before last week's 45-23 home loss to Michigan that kept them from reaching the Big Ten title game. ''When you look at the body of work that Ohio State has put forward, they have been a top-ranked team the entire season,'' Big Ten Commissioner Kevin Warren told the AP on Friday.
