Read his daily notebooks here at 9 a.m. ET Monday through Friday. In this edition, we discuss another round of offers to come from the Tar Heels’ football staff this month.
North Carolina was busy on the recruiting trail this month, which included a ton of offers to prospects in the 2018, 2019 and 2020 classes.
Here’s another batch of offers from the past few weeks:
William Harrod, 3-star 2019 offensive tackle, Fort Washington, Md.
William Harrod is a big tackle at 6-foot-5, 305 pounds. North Carolina wasn’t the only school to get involved with the National Christian Academy prospect this month. Shortly after the Tar Heels extended their offer, Harrod picked up offers from Maryland, Rutgers and Virginia Tech. He’s got 12 offers total, including Michigan, Arizona and Louisville.

Jesse Hanson, 3-star 2019 offensive guard, Daleville, Va.
Jesse Hanson is regarded as one of the better guards in his class, ranking No. 13 at his position and No. 445 overall in the Class of 2019. This could very well turn into another recruiting battle with Virginia Tech, which North Carolina has seen quite a bit lately and they haven’t been going the Tar Heels way. Hanson has nine total offers, including the Hokies, Duke, Iowa State and Virginia.

Rahmir Johnson, 4-star 2019 running back, Oradell, N.J.
Rahmir Johnson, the class’ No. 24 running back and No. 316 overall player, is among the highest-rated 2019 prospects offered by North Carolina in the Class of 2019. As a junior at Bergen Catholic, the No. 21 high school team in the country, according to MaxPreps, Johnson carried the ball 90 times for 555 yards and 6 touchdowns. He has offers from eight schools, including Boston College, Nebraska, Pitt, Rutgers and Temple.

Drew Little, 2019 long snapper, New London, N.C.
As a long snapper, Drew Little’s offer likely comes as a preferred walk-on, though he’s one of the best in the country at what he does, ranking as a 5-star snapper by Rubio Long Snapping. It’s unlikely that North Carolina is able to pull him away from N.C. State, where he committed in July, however.

Jordan Morant, 2020 safety, Oradell, N.J.
Jordan Morant is a teammate of Johnson at Bergen Catholic, which likely benefited him in pulling down the early offer from the Tar Heels. He certainly stood out for the Crusaders on the back end of that defense, making 60 tackles including 1 sack, 4 interceptions and 7 pass deflections as a sophomore. Morant has pulled in five offers, with most of the interest coming from the ACC. His other four offers come from Boston College, Pitt, Rutgers and Virginia Tech.

Fadil Diggs, 2020 defensive end, Camden, N.J.
Like a couple of the other prospects offered this month, Fadil Diggs hails from New Jersey. Though he isn’t rated yet, he’ll likely be one of the better defensive ends in his class. As a sophomore at Woodrow Wilson High School, he recorded 58 tackles, 9 sacks and 11 quarterback hurries in just seven games. He already has offers from N.C. State, Rutgers, South Carolina and Temple in addition to his Tar Heels offer.
