North Carolina got a big commitment on Tuesday in Dyami Brown.
The 6-foot-1, 160-pound four-star standout from Charlotte (N.C.) West Mecklenburg informed the coaching staff of his decision, according to Inside Carolina sources. He chose UNC over finalists Alabama, Michigan, Ohio State and Virginia Tech.
Gunter Brewer was Brown's primary recruiter for the Tar Heels. Brown is being recruited as an athlete, as he could play wide receiver or safety at the college level.
For West Mecklenburg, Brown stars at wide receiver and free safety. He concluded his junior season with 49 tackles and three interceptions on defense. On offense, he caught 54 passes for 1,012 yards and a dozen touchdowns, and carried the ball 43 times for 314 yards and a couple more scores.
“Great player, great kid,” West Mecklenburg head coach Jarvis Davis said. “He’s very exciting. He can do anything on the field – he does offense and defense [for us]. So, anywhere we need him, we put him. I’ve actually played him at outside linebacker to blitz and he just totally changes the complex of the game and the speed of the game. You can’t replicate speed and that’s what he has. He has height and speed.”
Brown becomes the second member of UNC's 2018 recruiting class, joining fellow in-state and Top 300 prospect OL Avery Jones.
