Heel Tough Blog: Andre Greene Jr. Commitment Preview
The Tar Heels have one major target in the 2022 class that currently remains uncommitted and on Wednesday night that prospect will make his decision. Back on November 3rd, 2022 4✮ WR Andre Greene Jr. announced his final three schools, North Carolina, Clemson and Georgia along with his decision date. Tonight’s decision will take place at 6:15 PM live on CBS Sports HQ.
The Tar Heels have been considered the longtime leaders for Greene Jr., but ever since Clemson entered the race back in June, this has been a neck-and-neck battle between the two. The Tar Heels appeared to grab a bit of an edge after the official visit in the final weekend in June and that feeling was built upon in season when he took an unofficial visit back in early October. Clemson got the final crack at things, though, on Saturday when they hosted him for his official visit and did so with a host of current commits in their 2022 class there for the weekend, as well. Even though the Tar Heels came in what looked to be the clear leaders, all of the buzz around his recruitment from the major sites seems to suggest that Clemson’s push was significant enough to potentially flip this decision in their favor.

So far, the forecaster remains rather silent, however. To this point, only one prediction has been cast between the two major sites and that is by Sam Spiegelman of Rivals who predicted the Tigers as the decision on Tuesday. More predictions could roll in as the day goes on, but right now it seems like the experts are still a little bit hesitant to call this one, meaning this could be similar to Zach Rice from a few weeks ago where we don’t exactly know the choice going in.
The Tar Heels have had the presumed lead in this race for the last few months and coming into this weekend I would have said it would have gone their way without a doubt. However, after seeing some of the quotes and rumors that have come out following his official visit to Clemson this weekend, there is reason to think it might have been enough to get the job done for Dabo and company. I think Clemson slow-played but did exactly what they needed to do in the end to land his commitment later tonight.
