Not too long ago, I previewed the Heels recruitment of quarterbacks . Let's take a new look after recent developments.

Of course, Butch Davis already has one verbal commitment from Everett Golson, a Myrtle Beach quarterback seemingly on the rise. I expect Coach Davis to sign at least one more from an impressive list of quarterbacks.

Vad Lee from Durham, N.C., has North Carolina high on his list. Lee has been considered as an athlete by some schools, but he is increasingly getting looked at as a quarterback. Lee would be a very good commit as an athlete or quarterback. 

Staying in the Carolina's, another prospect is Justin Worley from Rock Hill, S.C. He recently listed UNC in his top 5 along with Notre Dame, LSU, Tennessee, and Florida State. 

In the state of Florida is a good prospect by the name of Jacoby Brissett. Brissett is a two-sport athlete, and that could put UNC on the top of his list. He has dreamed of playing North Carolina basketball and if he could get the opportunity basketball there he just might take the football scholarship. Brissett is a good-sized quarterback at 6'4" and 225 lbs.

One of the top quarterbacks UNC is looking at is Marquise Williams. He just recently listed UNC in his top five along with Notre Dame, Michigan, Virginia Tech, and LSU. The  National Football Post   even says UNC is in his top 3 along with Notre Dame and Michigan. Williams is the only current 4-star prospect of the group according to Scout. 

Coach Davis and any Tar Heel fan should be ecstatic to land any of these coveted prospects. Adding one of these players to Everett Golson and red shirt freshman Bryn Renner would keep the quarterback position in good standing for several years to come.
