Fieulleteau Commits

In a move that seemed inevitable, Jordan Fieulleteau verbally committed to North Carolina on Monday.

"I just spoke to Coach [Larry] Fedora and I committed," Fieulleteau said Monday afternoon.

UNC was the first school to offer Fieulleteau, a 6-foot-3, 197-pound junior wide receiver from Raleigh (N.C.) Wakefield. He has made numerous visits to Chapel Hill over the past year, including last Wednesday's junior event.

He was also receiving interest from Alabama, Connecticut, Duke, East Carolina, Kentucky, NC State, Purdue, Rutgers, and South Carolina.

Fieulleteau emerged at UNC's Seven-on-Seven Passing Tournament last summer, winning the "Playmaker" award. He followed that up with a junior season in which he caught 86 passes for 1,200 yards and 24 touchdowns.

"He's a big, strong possession type of receiver," Wakefield head coach Rod Sink said. "He has pretty good speed, good hands, runs good routes – when he wants to. I don't want to take anything away from the kid, because he's a good talent, but if his consistency gets to where it needs to be, he'll be unstoppable...

"He's a tough receiver downfield, but he's not going to beat you deep. He's a guy that's going to jump up and catches the ball when he needs to. So if we're down at the goal line and we're throwing a fade, we're throwing it to Jordan."

Fieulleteau is UNC's third commitment in the Class of 2013, joining Durham (N.C) Hillside teammates Khris Francis (RB) and Korrin Wiggins (S).
