North Carolina recently became the fourth school to extend a verbal scholarship offer to one of the top athletes in the Northeast.
Armani Reeves, a 5-foot-11, 180-pound athlete from West Roxbury (Mass.) Catholic Memorial, had already picked up written offers from Penn State, UConn and Wake Forest, and he recently received good news from the Tar Heels.
"UNC offered me a couple of weeks ago when I visited for their game against Clemson," Reeves said. "I've always liked UNC. My godbrother goes there. I like all the coaches and also I've got family down there. It's not like I'd be away from family if I went there.

"I know their campus and their academics are really good. They have a lot of good things there."
Reeves said the offers from Penn State, Wake Forest and UConn came during the summer. The offers from Penn State and UConn came as a surprise because he had not built much of a relationship with those coaches, but since then he has become much more familiar with all of those schools.
"I don't really have any favorites because I'm getting mail from a lot of different schools," he added. "I'm just trying to keep my eyes open and my options open."
Catholic Memorial is 4-1 on the year. They had a bye last week and they are back in action on Friday. Reeves has been lining up at wide receiver, running back and cornerback.
On the season he has nearly 1,000 all-purpose yards to go along with nine touchdowns.
