The nation’s No. 1 offensive guard according to Rivals.com, Calvin Darity has committed to North Carolina. The 6-foot-4, 275-pound four-star selection from Tallahassee (Fla.) Lincoln committed to the Tar Heels just moments ago on television in Tallahassee, Fla.
Darity said he just felt right about his decision to pick UNC.
“It was where I belonged,” Darity, who also visited Florida State, LSU, Nebraska and Tennessee, said. “I just had a feeling from after I visited all the way until now that North Carolina is where I needed to be at.
"I just like the people there and the atmosphere is just great. I thought it was just the perfect fit for me."
UNC is getting a heck of a prospect.
"Calvin is a kid with great feet and athletic ability for his size and strength,” Lincoln coach David Wilson said. “He could wind up playing either guard or tackle in college. He’s real good and pulling and getting downfield with his blocks. He delivers an impact when he gets to his target."
During his junior season, Darity racked up 57 pancake blocks and 48 de-cleaters while grading out at 88-percent. His grandfather played for the San Francisco 49ers.
He is a four-star prospect and also ranked as the No. 48 player in the nation.
Darity's teammate Rodney Gallon also announced his college choice on the same television show.
Gallon, a four-star outside linebacker, committed to Florida State over offers from Auburn, Tennessee, Nebraska and several others.
