UNC finds a gem in DE Nazair Jones

Nazair Jones (Roanoke Rapids, N.C./Roanoke Rapids) a 6-foot-5, 250-pound, four-star defensive end, committed to the Tar Heels' nationally-ranked recruiting class, according to multiple sources.

Jones, who has flown under-the-radar to a degree, only held two other offers, from South Carolina and Virginia. Auburn, Clemson, Miami-FL, North Carolina State, Tennessee and Virginia Tech were evaluating Jones, but have not offered.

The Tar Heels have reached a dozen verbals with the addition of Jones. Nine of their 12 commitments are in-state prospects.
