4-star ATH DeAndre Boykins commits; UNC now holds a top-5 2021 class

Stop if you’ve heard this before: Mack Brown and UNC landed another high-profile in-state prospect in the 2021 class. On Wednesday night, 4-star safety/athlete DeAndre Boykins committed to North Carolina. Boykins, who hails from Concord, is considered a top-10 prospect in the state of North Carolina, according to 247 Sports.

UNC has 11 commitments in the 2021 class, currently. Brown has made localized recruiting a priority; of that group, 10 are from the state of North Carolina. It’s early, obviously, but North Carolina’s 2021 class ranks No. 4 overall in the country, per 247 Sports.

Once again, wide receivers coach Lonnie Galloway, who led the way for Boykins, help landed a high-profile in-state prospect.

The commitment of Boykins comes one day after 3-star athlete Tymir Brown pledged to North Carolina, too.
