Heels' hopes high for next season

Early Commit: WR Ryan Jones to North Carolina

North Carolina inked the No. 34-ranked recruiting class in the 2016 cycle with one ESPN 300 (Tomon Fox) and four more four-stars. The class of 2017 is well on the way to besting the 2016 class with four ESPN Jr300 verbals less than one week after signing day with the most recent being in state receiver Ryan Jones Friday.

ESPN 300 WR Nate Craig-Myers chooses Auburn over North Carolina. He joins Kyle Davis, Eli Stove and Marquis McClain in a loaded WR class for the Tigers. And with Auburn losing its top two pass-catchers, all four will have a chance to play early.

Ranking the ACC conference schedules

NC State appears to have the roughest slate to navigate in the conference, while Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech couldn't ask for much better.

Tar Heels' 2016 game dates are official

The ACC has released its 2016 schedule, and North Carolina opens on Sept. 3 vs. Georgia in Atlanta. On Sept. 10, the Heels will play at Illinois. Also noteworthy: a Thursday night clash at Duke on Nov. 10. See entire 2016 ACC schedule

Better keep an eye on the ACC during October from start to finish. Clemson at Florida State on Oct. 29 headlines the league slate, but the month begins with Coastal champ North Carolina visiting FSU and Clemson hosting up-and-comer Louisville. The hype for that Oct. 29 game will be muted if either trips up four weeks earlier.

Trubisky is the leader UNC needs

Watch out Deshaun Watson, Mitch Trubisky is here to play. The UNC quarterback put up stellar numbers in 2015, but ESPN's David Hale believes Trubisky will be the most statistically prolific QB in the ACC this fall as the Tar Heels' new starter. Rising stars (Insider)
