'We Need to Bond Together'

North Carolina's verbal commitments Jordan Fieulleteau, R.J. Prince, and Korrin Wiggins weren't concerned by the additional sanctions placed on the football program by the NCAA on Monday afternoon.

"It's not as bad as it could be," Fieulleteau said. "I'm just glad it doesn't affect my time there. I was worried about the bowl bans. I'm just happy that I'll have the opportunity to play in four bowl games while I'm in college."

Prince said: "I know there will be less scholarships out there, but I've already got mine locked up. I'm just going to wait and see what plays out. I'll take it one day at a time."

Wiggins added: "I understand them, but it doesn't really have an effect on me to what I'm doing. It's going to happen before I even get there. When I get there – since I'm already committed – my scholarship is pretty much set."

With all that said, the additional penalties don't affect the commitment statuses of the three pledges.

"It doesn't affect anything dealing with me," Fieulleteau said. "I'm still a solid commitment."

Instead of running away, Prince believes UNC's verbal commitments need to come together.

"We just need to bond together – that's all we need to do," Prince said. "I'm going to talk to Jordan, Khris [Francis], and Korrin and see what they're thinking about it. Plus, I'm going to talk to the other recruits that I'm very close with – like Connor Mitch, Tyquan [Lewis], Marquez [North], Lewis [Neal]. I'll just talk with them."

All three aforementioned commitments plan to attend UNC's Spring Game on April 14 and a couple spring practices during the coming weeks.

Since committing to UNC, Wiggins has collected scholarship offers from Clemson, South Carolina, and Wake Forest leading to speculation that he's looking around.

"I'm pretty much committed," Wiggins said. "I'm not all the way solid yet, because it's still kind of early. But I'm committed – nothing has changed. I plan on signing with North Carolina. I don't have any visits to other schools set up, as of right now."
