Holts Chooses Tar Heels

Inside Carolina
Posted Jun 25, 2010


For the second consecutive recruiting class, North Carolina has secured a verbal commitment from a highly touted Indiana offensive lineman. Kiaro Holts, Scout.com's No. 5-ranked offensive tackle in the nation, verbally committed to UNC early Friday morning, according to his assistant coach Greg Brookey.

Holts, a 6-foot-4, 266-pounder from Indianapolis (Ind.) Warren Central, selected UNC over fellow finalists Cincinnati, Florida, Oregon, and Virginia Tech. Nearly 30 schools offered him a scholarship, including all five finalists.

Over a year ago, James Hurst, a five-star offensive tackle hailing from Plainfield (Ind.), verbally committed to the Tar Heels. He went on to enroll at UNC last January, after playing in the Under Armour All-American Game.

Outside of their state of residence, the one constant in both Holts’ and Hurst’s recruitment is their primary recruiter, UNC offensive line coach Sam Pittman.

Earlier in the month, Holts made his first and only visit to UNC. He also visited Cincinnati, Florida, Indiana, Louisville, Purdue, and Virginia Tech.
