Farms' letter good start to UNC's big day

One of the biggest nail-biters of North Carolina’s highly regarded recruiting class is in.

Offensive lineman Johnnie Farms of Perry, Ga., had committed to the Tar Heels but also considered Auburn in the days leading up to signing day. That made him the type of guy that a coach worries about until his letter of intent actually arrives.

That happened at 8:11 a.m. today, according to, the school’s official web site. So what’s expected to be a great day for the Tar Heels is off to a good start. – Ken Tysiac
