The North Carolina Tar Heels added two members to their 2014 football recruiting class yesterday, and both of them were safeties in Wake Forest legacy Allen Artis and Freak Show attendee Cameron Albright. Both of them are solid three-star prospects who could eventually be UNC’s starting safety duo, but, for now, both are among 12 commitments in UNC’s 2014 class, which is among the top 25 recruiting classes in the country.
Albright chose UNC over offers from the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, Cincinnati Bearcats, West Virginia Mountaineers, North Carolina State Wolfpack, Vanderbilt Commodores, UCF Knights, Texas Tech Red Raiders, Wisconsin Badgers, Mississippi State Bulldogs, and Wake Forest Demon Deacons.
UNC beat out some quality schools and rivals to get a commitment from Cameron Albright, who is ranked by the 247Composite as the 702nd-best recruit in the country, the 52nd-best safety overall, and he is their 62nd-ranked player in the state of Georgia. Albright is a quality three-star snag for the Tar Heels, and he gives Larry Fedora a guy with elite ball skills and great size at 6’2″, 207 pounds. Like Artis, Albright is a very smart safety with great instincts, and that looks to be something that UNC values in their safeties.
The North Cobb High standout is an underrated three-star prospect overall, and UNC has done an excellent job to lock up a commitment from a player they were expected to land. Albright committed to the school on the Freak Show visit yesterday, and that came after visits to in-state rivals Wake Forest and N.C. State on the two previous, respective dates.
