Tyrone Hopper informed Inside Carolina that he verbally committed to North Carolina prior to concluding his camp visit on Monday.
The 6-foot-3, 201-pound linebacker from Roswell (Ga.) selected UNC over scholarship offers from Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisville, Mississippi State, Missouri, NC State, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Wake Forest.
A Shelby, N.C. native, Hopper moved to Georgia when he was eight years old.
For Roswell High, Hopper plays both Bandit and WILL linebacker in a 4-2-5 defensive scheme. In that role as a junior, he accumulated 113 tackles, four sacks, and 24 pass breakups.
“He’s athletic, rangey, physical, and he can bend and move real well,” Roswell head coach John Ford said.
