Heels Add Kicker

Inside Carolina learned from several sources confirming Jay Wooten has accepted North Carolina's scholarship offer by verbally committing to the Tar Heels Friday morning.

As a member of Chris Sailer's 2007 Top 12, Wooten will be attending Sailer's invitation-only Top 12 Camp.

A starter since his freshman year for Laurinburg (N.C.) Scotland County, Wooten converted 8-of-13 field goals during his junior season. He also kicked 70-percent of his kickoffs for touchbacks. In his first year punting, he landed 19 inside the 20-yard line.
