Defensive End Haynes makes the switch from Louisville to UNC

2 posts in this topic

New North Carolina head coach Larry Fedora has struck again. Three star defensive end Marquis Hayneshas flipped his commitment from Louisville to Carolina.

Haynes becomes the third DE to commit to UNC in the 2013 class joining four star prospects Nazair Jones and Dejuan Drennnon. Haynes out of Jacksonville, FL is a nice athlete with the potential for huge upside. His athleticism has him on the field on both sides of the ball in high school.

At the HS level he’s a pretty good tight end but projects solely as a DE in college. Haynes’ commitment from Louisville was never really solid as he kept the lines of communication with other programs after his May commitment to Louisville, especially Carolina open. He made a return visit to Chapel Hill in mid July and after talking with the coaches and soaking up the Carolina atmosphere he announced his intentions to flip his commitment to UNC today.

The speedy DE joins a program with a rich history of developing top notch DE’s to be apart of Fedoras new 4-2-5 defense. Fedora and company have done a great job of building the defensive line in the last couple weeks. Previous Penn State commit defensive tackle Greg Webb a four star stud out of Timber Creek announced his intentions to attend Carolina along with his teammate DE Dejuan Drennon.

Haynes becomes the 16th commitment in the class of 2013 for the Tar Heels. Fedora has brought a new energy to both the practice field and the recruiting trail since becoming UNCs new head coach. His vision of building a North Carolina Dream Team has produced stellar results with nine of the 16 commitments coming from within the great state of North Carolina. Landing players such as Haynes, QB Mitch Trubisky, WR Ryan Switzer and Webb is also showing that Fedora can go outside of the state and bring some of the top talent in the country to Chapel Hill.

    • I was a Marine Brat at Camp Lejeune NC and graduated from CLHS in 1978 and on 28 June 1978 I joined the Navy.  I retired On June 30th 2003 after 25 yrs of Naval Service and have been serving overseas to support our troops ever since. I was in Tikrit when they captured Saddam.  Soldiers from our base were the ones who actually found him.  I have been in places in Iraq called Mosul, Al Asad, and Al Kut,  I have been in Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan.  The living hell hole called FOB Shank were incoming was a daily encounter. You see young soldiers who don't even shave yet.  Some look like they lied to get in.  Men and women from every walk of life.  Putting that uniform on.  So needless to say, I am very attached and proud of every one of them.  Whether they know me or not.  Tears fill my eyes every time we lose one. (Just lost one last week). This video, I saw when it was originally aired, still make me water up.   I challenge anybody to show me a more military dedicated team, in ANY LEAGUE, ANY SPORT, that supports the troops like the Carolina Panthers.  I'll give my hated Yankees a close 2nd. ($10,00 ticket with a military ID) **at old Yankee Stadium. Carolina is a class act, plain and simple. Thanks for posting this again,
