2k, also see that 6-0 PG Drue Drinnon of Athens, GA will be playing his senior year at Nova Southeastern University School in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Looks like UGA, GT, Wake, Ole Miss, South Florida and Florida Gulf Coast are still in the  mix for him.

Reading on Verbal Commits that 6-10 PF Colin Castleton of Father Lopez Catholic HS in Daytona Beach, FL has removed us from consideration and is now finalizing his final six (per VC, FSU, Illinois, and Purdue still in the mix).  Looks like we were one of his first D-I offers a little over a year ago.
Castleton is one of those we saw early (IMO) that it wasn't going to happen and moved on. Not much about us with him after the offer that I can recall.
From what I glanced over, sounds like he went from a MM prospect to HM over the summer. And FWIW, his final list is actually eight - Baylor, Florida, FSU, Illinois, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Purdue.

Clearly the UNC professor has ZERO expertise on anything. This is where our money goes via tuition, folks

I revisited Peppers' transcript, and it is really !@#%@* crazy that he was ever eligible to play football. I'd love for the COI to take his transcript and ask for UNC to go through each semester....and let them explain it....and explain how he always seemed to miraculously get exactly what was needed to maintain eligibility. Then cross-reference the classes that saved him with fraudulent Crowder classes.
After 1st year: GPA 1.66 (after summer school, prior to his second year of eligibility)
After 2nd year: GPA 1.92 (needed to be 1.9)
After 3rd year: GPA 2.066 (needed to be 2.0) - with two Fs and two miracle Bs in AFAM
Of course, during his senior year he didn't take any classes in the fall, then dropped out.
Zero math classes passed eVar.

clt still is annoyed that the Panthers signed this fraud.

For those that believe the NCAA is more afraid of UNC-CH vs Jeff Kessler and Steve Berman you are 100% incorrect. Every school in the 9th circuit of the United States is now governed by the O'Bannon decision which was upheld (remedy changed by CoA) and SCOTUS did not accept. So, the O'Bannon verdict is the law in the 9th. The 9th CoA upheld in a 3-0 decision that NCAA rules regarding NIL are illegal. However, the 9th stated as a remedy that compensation for NIL could be capped at Cost of Attendance because athletes are students first and foremost.
The Jenkins case is being heard in the same courtroom as O'Bannon and is governed by the law in the 9th which has already ruled NCAA NIL rules are illegal. Also, in the 9th the NCAA can no longer argue "amateurism" as a defense for violating anti-trust law. Kessler is the best sports anti-trust attorney in the US. He is the reason for free agency in NFL and NBA. Kessler has beaten all four major league sports team in anti-trust to some degree.
Because of O'Bannon, Kessler/Berman have a much easier time showing that compensation rules for labor are also illegal per anti-trust statute. The key area they will look to pierce is the 9th ruling on compensation capped at Cost of Attendance. The way to pierce that veil is prove that athletes in revenue sports are NOT students first and foremost. The athletes are athletes first and foremost and an education is a by-product if they try and get it.
If the NCAA does not punish UNC-CH severely they will have a difficult time in a courtroom in Oakland defending their position that athletes are students first and foremost with what happened at UNC-CH. If Kessler/Berman can pierce that student veil then it could be a free market for compensation for athletes just like coaches, administrators, etc. This would cause labor costs for athletes to shift from 10-15% of revenue to closer to 50% of revenue like other professional sports leagues do revenue sharing.

clt says this is from the UNCR board. The poster claims to be a Duke grad as well, so he maybe smart.

Austin Duke's nephew made the team as a walk on.

Is this our first player "legacy"?  Well, he is a nephew, not a child, but that is pretty cool.

At a minimum I know that Tyler Destefani, Linebacker (2012, 2013), is a legacy.  His dad went to UNC Charlotte.  Others?
