Powell Commits

Tyler Powell became the second Tar Heel to commit on Monday evening. The Midlothian (Va.) Cosby defensive lineman confirmed to InsideCarolina.com that he informed the UNC staff of his decision.

The 6-4, 250-pound standout chose UNC over offers from West Virginia, Wisconsin, Syracuse, Michigan State and a dozen others.

He received the UNC offer this past Saturday.

Powell was named the Defensive Line MVP at the National Underclassmen Five Star East Showcase held in April.
