Heel Tough Blog: Who Could Join the 2024 Class Next?

The Tar Heels’ 2024 class currently sits 13th in the 247Sports Composite team rankings with thirteen commitments in the cycle prior to the start of summer official visits. While the volume of commitments is great for a team that has 41 scholarship upperclassmen this season, the class contains only one 4✮, lacking the firepower that the prior ones since Mack Brown’s returns have had. Over the next few months, the staff will look to find those headlining pieces to go with the foundation that they have already built in this class. Here is a look at the prospects we think could be the next to pop in favor of the Tar Heels.

3DL De’Andre Cook- Friendship Collegiate Academy (Washington, DC)

Cook is the uncommitted prospect that the Tar Heels might be in the best shape with at this point after a recent unscheduled visit to Chapel Hill. That visit appeared to have strengthened the hold that the staff has on the top spot in this race. Following this visit, it seems inevitable that Cook will be a Tar Heel, it’s just a matter of when.

3CB Trajen Greco- Mill Creek (Hoschton, GA)

Cooper Scruggs- C.S. Productionz

This is another prospect that the Tar Heels have seemed to take a lead with after a spring full of visits. It shouldn’t come as much of a shock considering the fact that two of his teammates are already committed to the class, including fellow defensive back Jaiden Patterson. Georgia Tech and Vanderbilt still seem like they are in the thick of this thing, but having his teammate on board already could help pull Greco towards Mack Brown and company.

3WR Keenan Jackson- Weddington (Matthews, NC)

Michael Mann Jr.

This is still the wide receiver target that we feel most confident in saying will be a Tar Heel at this point. It appears that this will likely be one that would have to wait until June, but he still seems to have the closest ties to the Tar Heels. He will most likely take multiple official visits in June, with one almost certainly being to Chapel Hill a place he has visited multiple time. If the team does not land another commitment in the class this month, Jackson is a good bet to be the first one on board as long as the Tar Heels knock it out of the park.
