Carney, a 6-foot-2, 208-pound prospect, is the second Alexandria (Va.) Williams player to commit to the Heels in a week. His teammate, Jeremiah Clarke, committed to UNC last Sunday.
Carney picked North Carolina over Tennessee. He also had offers from 11 other schools, including Connecticut and Pittsburgh.
UNC began seriously recruiting Carney during the Spring Evaluation Period. However, it wasn't until that period ended that the Tar Heels – among many other schools – decided to actually offer.
