Ga. OL is a Tar Heel

Commitment No. 4 for the Tar Heels came on Sunday in the form of offensive lineman Andre Barbour. The 6-5, 256-pound standout attended UNC's team camp over the weekend.

"I verbally committed to North Carolina today," Barbour told Inside Carolina via cell phone as he drove back from the camp. "The camp experience was great. I just loved this place."

While not sporting a blazing 40 speed, his footwork and agility have drawn praise at recent camps, and he has impressive academic credentials.

He camped at Auburn last summer, and had cited them as his favorite in the past. He's received significant interest from Auburn, West Virginia, Oklahoma, Florida and UCLA, but his two offers up to now were from Duke and Middle Tennessee State.

"I may take some other visits, but I told the UNC staff that I was committed to them," Barbour said. "I told them that I might take the visits and they said that was all right. They wanted me to be sure where I wanted to go."
