North Carolina continued its hot streak on Saturday with a beat down of Miami (FL) in front of a number of top targets from the 2016 class and beyond. The Tar Heels ran their win streak to nine games, and are gaining momentum on the trail with each impressive victory. Meanwhile in Tallahassee, the Seminoles played host to a number of top prospects in the 2016 and 2017 classes:
The Tar Heels had a number of commitments in the 2016 class on hand, along with nearly two-dozen targets in 2017 and beyond. One of those was ESPN Junior 300 defensive tackle Eric Crosby out of Virginia.
The Tar Heels are in the mix for Crosby along with Tennessee, but the coaching futures in Virginia and Virginia Tech could play a key role down the line.
The highest-ranked junior on hand in Chapel Hill was ESPN Junior 300 No. 48 Micah Clark. The Garden State offensive tackle took to Twitter Saturday to let Tar Heels fans know he had a great visit.

The competition with North Carolina for Clark will include some of the nation's top programs, including Ohio State, Clemson, Penn State and Michigan.
Another junior on hand in Chapel Hill who has an offer from North Carolina was defensive end Alec Jackson. The 6-foot-5, 240-pound defender from the state of Alabama liked what he saw from the Tar Heels defensive line.

Jackson is considered a lean to North Carolina.
Jackson’s teammate, junior offensive lineman Preston Mixon, was also in attendance, and snapped a picture with Tar Heels offensive lineman Landon Turner.

Florida State also played host to a number of top targets in the classes of 2016 and 2017. That list of juniors included ESPN Junior 300 athlete and former Ohio State verbal Bruce Judson.
Judson loved his trip to Tallahassee, and let everyone know on Twitter.
Judson is considered a Florida vs. Florida State battle at this point with a number of other schools still in the mix. It remains to be seen if one of the in-state powers makes Bruce a high priority in December and the spring.
