Chalk up yet another commitment for the Tar Heels, their seventh since the conclusion of last weekend's camp. Cameron Holland, a 6-foot-3, 270-pound offensive guard from Pittsburgh (Pa.) Perry Traditional Academy, chose the Tar Heels on Friday.

"I decided to commit to North Carolina," said Holland.

Holland narrowed his decision to two finalists -- UNC and Pittsburgh -- both of which had offered him, and let the Tar Heel coaching staff know his decision Friday afternoon.

He called head coach John Bunting, but also spoke with offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti and offensive line coach Mark Weber.

"They seemed excited and said it was great news, that I made a great decision, and they look forward to coaching me," Holland said.

Holland was in Chapel Hill last weekend during Carolina's individual camp.

"It was just I went down there, saw the campus, get a feel for their coaches, met with their academic support staff, and saw the pharmacy school," Holland said. "I decided that, not only was it a place that I wanted to go, but it was a place that was good for me to go to."

Last season at Perry Traditional Academy, Holland was named to the first team all-city and first team All-AAA teams. The UNC staff already knows where they want to play him.

"They talked to me about playing as a guard on the right side of the line," Holland said. "They said there is a chance that I'll be redshirted."
