InsideCarolina.com has confirmed through sources close to the situation that Jonathan Cooper, a 6-3, 305-pound offensive lineman Wilmington (N.C.) Hoggard, committed to North Carolina on Friday over finalists South Carolina and Wake Forest.

"I'm relieved, it's been a long process but a good one." Copper told WECT. "In the end I just knew this was the best fit for me. I really enjoyed my visit and the coaching staff at Carolina."

"It was a bunch of factors," Cooper told the Wilmington Star-News. "I have a lot of family in the area, and the campus is beautiful."

"I'll likely have to make the move to center, which will be new for me. I haven't played the position in a game, but I've been working on it since the end of the season and know I'll be able to make the move."
