Since he was brought up in the comment section over the weekend, here’s catching up with Darian Durant, statistically if not arguably UNC’s best-ever quarterback.

Weekend Quick Hitters

Scouring the interwebs for your weekend reading pleasure…

**Inside Carolina is reporting that offensive tackle Kiaro Holts, ranked the #5 OT in the country by Scout.com, has committed to the Tar Heels. This is another big O-line get from Indiana, following James Hurst. Consistency on the offensive line has been a Carolina shortcoming for a [...]
