Although it is still early in the process, the North Carolina Tar Heels are doing an excellent job of filling out their 2015 recruiting class.
On Friday, they added their eighth commitment when they landed 3-star dual threat quarterback Nathan Elliot. Elliot is the second quarterback to give his pledge to the Tar Heels, joining fellow 3-star dual threat quarterback Anthony Ratliff.
The 6’1.5, 195-pound Elliot is from Celina, Texas and attends Celina High School.
Elliot is ranked as the 36th best dual threat quarterback prospect, the 128th best overall prospect in the state of Texas and and the 968th best overall prospect in the class of 2015, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.
Elliot chose the Tar Heels over offers from the Arizona State Sun Devils and the Arkansas State Red Wolves and was drawing interest from the likes of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Texas Longhorns and Texas Christian Horned Frogs.
He joins Ratliff, 3-star offensive tackle Mason Veal, 3-star safety Ronnie Harrison, 3-star offensive tackle William Sweet, 3-star inside linebacker Andre Smith, 3-star cornerback Corey Bell, Jr. and 3-star athlete Carl Tucker.
