03 Depth Chart: Durant Jr, Stephens Sr, Baker Soph
Needs: Seeking two as none were signed in 2002. Because UNC has two commitments already, recruiting at this position is, for all intents and purposes, done.
Nick Cangelosi (6-4, 215, 4.7, NJ) - 2300 yds and 25 tds as a junior. Extremely quick release..draws comparisons to NFL prototype passers Dan Marino and Brett Favre. Committed to UNC over offers from BC, VAT, IA, RUT, MN, VANDY

Depth Charts 03
1. TB - Williams Sr, Parker Sr, Lewis Jr, Scott Jr, Cook Soph (TB/FB), Carey Rfr (TB/S), Walker Rfr (TB/S)
2. FB - Hedgecock Jr, Gibson Jr, Faison Sr
2. FS - Reid Sr (nfl?), Harris Sr, Macklin Jr
3. SS - Curry Jr,
Needs: Given the depth chart for 03, as listed above, it is easy to see why UNC is seeking a TB only if he is really, really special, or possibly if he could also project to the S spot. A FB would be a luxury pick up given UNC's other needs and limited numbers, but if none are added FB will be a prime need in 04. A top S could be necessary if it looks like Reid will go pro early.
