It wasn't long after arriving on UNC's campus with his family and coaches for Saturday's visit that Greg Ross committed to North Carolina.
Sources confirm the 5-11, 170 defensive back from Oxen Hill (Md.) Potomac gave Larry Fedora the verbal commitment in the early afternoon.
Ross had trimmed his list to UNC, Wisconsin, Virginia Tech, Maryland, and West Virginia - and was expected to pick UNC earlier this month - but delayed the decision with the arrival of new offers from schools including Clemson and Nebraska.
But the return visit (he first attended a UNC junior day earlier this year) with his family on Saturday proved to be enough to overcome the new interest and secure his commitment.
“When I went down to North Carolina, they made me feel like I’m at home,” Ross said after his first Chapel Hill visit. “[They have] good coaching staff – a good new defensive coaching staff they got up there. I love the facilities [and] I love the players that they already have up there. I just love North Carolina. And also, Coach [Charlton] Warren and I have a great relationship.”
For Potomac, Ross stars at safety where he finished second in Maryland in interceptions (seven), while accumulating 62 tackles and two forced fumbles. He returned two of his picks and a fumble for touchdowns.
“[Warren] sees me up there playing corner,” Ross said. “He says that he knows I can play safety, so if they need me to play safety he’ll move me to safety. But he’s going to start me off at corner. He feels I’m a nice long corner, I’m a versatile type of guy, [and] I can come up and tackle.”
