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.

    • Destiny really fuged me in terms of me playing other games. I have a week off this summer and maybe I will be able to dive back in, but I'd really like to finish Breath of the Wild too.  Witcher is so much fun, but iirc I'm kind of at a point where all my quests are a much higher level than me (like 30s and I'm a 15 or something). I probably need to back track and pick up a bunch of side quests that are manageable to boost my level some.    I like the Witcher's lore better than Skyrim, but I still think Skyrim is a more appealing game to me just because you can casually pick it up and start dominating. Witcher is more rewarding but takes more time. 
    • No way would I consider CAP a lock to make the roster. In fact, I think he may be on the outside looking in at the moment. But, the stats bear out that he was roughly equal to Stew in effectiveness last year. Stew averaged 3.78ypc and a TD once every 24 carries. CAP averaged 4ypc and a TD once every 18 carries. Hell, it may be generous saying that Stew was equal to CAP in effectiveness last year. I think a lot of Panthers fans suffer from nostalgia when looking at Stew. I still think he's a decent RB, but to hear some Panthers fans talk you'd think that the guy was a future HOFer. I feel like most of us (myself and the front office and coaching staff included) have perpetually overvalued Jonathan Stewart.
