North Carolina picked up a pledge earlier today from tailback Romar Morris. The Salisbury, N.C. officially gave the word to the Tar Heels earlier this evening.
"I probably committed about 30 minutes ago to Coach Davis," he said. "He was excited. He said he's looking forward to getting me up there.
"He just told me that he likes my speed and is ready to see what I can do."

In the end, Morris' decision came down to North Carolina and Georgia Tech.
"It was just my family and what school was best for me," he said. "Georgia Tech is a nice school, but when I went down to North Carolina I just felt like I was at home, it was a better place."
The Tar Heels coaches factored into the equation as well.
"They were really nice and treated me like I was at home," he said. "Everything was great there. I like all of them they stuck out. Coach Davis is a great guy too. He talked to me and listened to me."
Not surprising a star track athlete as well, Morris plans to run track in college.
"I'm probably going to run track when I get there," he said. "The coaches told me a couple of players run it in the spring time."
As for when he'll see the field, the No. 10 all-purpose back in the country will get a chance as soon as he arrives on campus.
"They said when I come down there I'll be able to work for some playing time. They'll be losing a couple seniors."
Morris plans to graduate on-time next summer.
"I'm just excited about getting it out of the way," he stated. "I wanted to get my decision done before the season came about."
