The North Carolina football team secured its sixth 2018 commit — and its first at the most important position in the game — in Tyler Shough.
The four-star quarterback announced his commitment to UNC on Thursday. He chose the Tar Heels over 22 other schools, including Alabama, Florida State and Michigan.
"I want to be a part of something great moving forward and truly develop myself, my teammates and the community in Chapel Hill," he said on Twitter.
Shough stands at 6-foot-4 and weighs 187 pounds. During his junior season at Hamilton High in Chandler, Arizona, he threw for 2,079 yards and 27 touchdowns against nine interceptions in 12 games. He also completed 61 percent of his passes (142 completions on 230 attempts).
