Tar Heels continue to roll

Three star recruit Cameron Holland, a 6-3, 280-pound offensive guard from Pittsburgh, Pa., Perry Traditional Academy, chose North Carolina over Pittsburgh today. The talented lineman gave his verbal to the Tar Heels this afternoon.

"UNC had everything I wanted," Holland said. "I committed about five minutes ago. I want to major in pharmacy and they had that. I like the coaching staff, too."

He runs the 40-yard dash in 4.95 seconds and the pro shuttle in 4.63 seconds. Holland's bench press is 400 pounds and he squats 520 pounds.

He also has a 32-inch vertical.
