North Carolina Tar Heels coach Larry Fedora is on the recruiting trail and recently spent some time with Jake Lawler, a Class of 2017 four-star defensive end who currently attends South Mecklenburg High School in Charlotte.
In a video posted to Lawler’s Twitter, Lawler himself verbally commits to UNC in saying “I want to be a Tar Heel,” and Fedora’s reaction says it all.
Move over, Ric Flair, because you have been dethroned. Fedora’s reaction was more like he won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, or a $1 billion Powerball jackpot.
Either way, after leading UNC to an 11-3 (8-0 ACC) record, Fedora is ensuring the Tar Heels’ future successes quite well now that Lawler has committed to the program.
