The North Carolina Tar Heels believe they may have found their quarterback of the future.
On Monday, 3-star quarterback Anthony Ratliff gave his pledge to the Tar Heels.
The 6’1, 195-pound Ratliff, who is considered a dual threat passer, attends Butler High School in Matthews, North Carolina.
“It was the familiarity with them,” Butler coach Brian Hales told Langston Wertz Jr. of The Charlotte Observer. “Those guys did an unbelievable job recruiting him. The style of offense they play is very comfortable for him, and academically it has a great reputation, and he gets to stay close to home.”
Ratliff is considered the 20th best dual threat quarterback prospect in the country, the 21st ranked overall prospect in the state of North Carolina and the 523rd best overall prospect in the class of 2015, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.
Ratliff was offered back in May and has unofficially visited Chapel Hill to see the Tar Heels several times.
He chose the Tar Heels over offers from the Clemson Tigers, Duke Blue Devils, and Mississippi State Bulldogs, among others.
