Buford product headed to ACC

Inside linebacker / fullback Nathan Staub (Buford, Ga.) has joined North Carolina's Class of 2012, multiple sources report.

California, Virginia and Harvard also extended scholarship offers to the 6-foot-2, 215-pound senior from one of Georgia's top high school programs. Academics were an important factor in his decision.

The Tar Heels now have 18 commitments for this recruiting cycle. Every prospect in the class evaluated by ESPNU has received at least a three-star grade.
