"Today is a great day of celebration for all of our signees, the guys who have signed on the dotted line to be Tar Heels. I'm excited about it. We worked extremely hard. I can't tell you how hard, how smart, how creative and how aggressive we have been throughout the recruiting process. Sometimes years are involved in the recruiting of these players.
"Everyone in this building has done an incredible job. Our support staff, our athletic department, our chancellor - I can't thank them enough for everything they've done to bring home a great recruiting class. I know that because of the fact that over two-thirds of these players have been in our camps, we've done a thorough job of evaluating them as players, as students and we've gotten to know their character. That's so important to me in this football program at this great university.
"It's great to get them to sign on the dotted line, to have those faxes in here. I've talked with everyone of those guys with the exception of one, and they are all excited to be part of this program that is on the rise."
