Although most North Carolina fans were bummed out thanks to Duke basketball player Austin Rivers, things were not all bad for the school Wednesday night as Durham (N.C.) teammates Khris Francis and Korrin Wiggins committed to the football program, according to TarHeelIllustrated.com.
The pair, from Hillside High, become new head coach Larry Fedora's first commitments for the class of 2013. The 5-foot-9, 190-pound Francis is a running back who rushed for over 2,200 yards as a junior. Wiggins is a 5-foot-11, 175-pound safety/receiver and did not hold any other offers.
North Carolina signed 23 players last week as part of Fedora's first recruiting class.
