    The Inside Carolina staff is already hard at work on the special "2007 Recruiting Yearbook" issue. All 64 pages of the issue will be about the Tar Heels' football recruiting class. Each player will be profiled in-depth, with quotes from experts and coaches. And the issue will be packed with great photos from IC photographer Jim Hawkins, who was out on the high school football circuit all year compiling shots of UNC's recruits.

    The 2006 Recruiting Yearbook was one of Inside Carolina's most popular issues last year and sold out fast, so make sure you don't miss this year's edition!
