21 Players Make Up UNC Recruiting Class

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina coach Butch Davis unveiled a 21-player recruiting class Wednesday, which includes a couple of talented linemen that could see playing time right away.

Davis signed four offensive linemen, including a pair who enrolled in school last month in James Hurst and T.J. Leifheit (LIFE-hite).

That position is an area of need for the Tar Heels, who were stretched thin up front because of injuries last season.

Hurst was rated a five-star prospect by Scout.com, while Leifheit was a four-star choice. In addition, defensive lineman Brandon Willis is already in school after switching his commitment when Lane Kiffin left Tennessee to take over at Southern California.
