Banks Commits to UNC

Korey Banks is the second wide receiver prospect to commit to UNC in as many weeks.

Although he didn’t pull the trigger on either of his planned dates, Korey Banks has verbally committed to North Carolina.

Banks, a 6-foot, 165-pound athlete from Tyrone (Ga.) Sandy Creek, selected UNC over fellow finalists Arizona, Georgia Tech, Michigan, Wake Forest, and Wisconsin.

Initially, Banks considered making a verbal commitment on either of the past two Saturdays.

Banks, who was recruited by Chris Kapilovic, is projected as a wide receiver by the UNC staff. He ended his junior season with 700 yards in receptions for a team that went 11-2.

Banks first visited UNC for its thrilling victory over Pittsburgh last season. He returned to Chapel Hill in early June.

With Banks's commitment, UNC's 2016 class now stands at 14.
