UNC football inks two for 2015 season

Posted August 1, 2014

— The 2014 football season got underway Friday for the University of North Carolina with a morning practice, and already, the Heels are thinking about 2015.

UNC announced that they have signed scholarship agreements with Butler High School quarterback Anthony Ratliff and Hough High School tight end Carl Tucker.

Ratliff is a 6-foot-1, 195-pound dual threat quarterback who led the Bulldogs to 11 wins and a 4-AA Western Regional final in 2013. Last season he threw for 2,558 yards and 34 touchdowns while rushing for 1,655 and 20 touchdowns. Rated a 3-star prospect by ESPN, Ratliff also had offers from Clemson, Mississippi State, Toledo and Georgia State.

Tucker is ranked the 4th best tight end in the country and 9th best player in North Carolina by ESPN. At 6-foot-2, 22- pounds, Tucker had offers from East Carolina, Clemson, Penn State, Tennessee and Wake Forest.

Each player is expected to finish their high school degrees this semester and enroll at UNC in January.

    Yeah, a great one...Alex comes on here and gets spanked like a 3 year old throwing a temper tantrum so the next step will be for it to run to the mods...kinda like a Pack Backer, they run to the N&O and the NCAA since they can't take care of their own business...just sayin

    Confront her. Let her know how badly she hurt you when she cheated. Then, only then, can you begin to heal and put the pain behind you.
