Class of 2018 prospect Zamir White gives his verbal commitment to Georgia on Tuesday, a big get for head coach Kirby Smart and his staff
The five-star running back out of Laurinburg, North Carolina picked the Georgia Bulldogs over instate North Carolina.
White made his decision during a press conference at Scotland High School with classmates, friends and family around. He had five hats on the table, picking between Ohio State, Alabama, UNC, Georgia and Clemson.
The 6-foot-1, 220-pound running back is the No. 1 player at his position and the No. 6 overall player in the 2018 class.
For UNC, not landing White is a tough pill to swallow. Head coach Larry Fedora and his staff have done a great job of landing some instate talent in both the 2017 and 2018 recruiting classes.
But they just couldn’t land the big five star running back.
UNC does have some impressive backs coming in for the 2017 class as they hope to fill a void left by Elijah Hood and T.J. Logan.
The Tar Heels will turn their attention to another big commit, wide receiver Jordyn Adams who is set to pick between UNC and Clemson next week.
