North Carolina is currently in the top three for Jeadyn Lukus, a 5-star 2022 cornerback from South Carolina. Over the weekend, Lukus and his family took an official visit to UNC, which reportedly went very well for all parties.
Assistant coach Dre Bly leads the recruiting effort from North Carolina. However, competing with heavyweights Clemson and Ohio State for the 6-foot-2, 185-pound cornerback won’t be easy.
Lukus, who hails from Mauldin, ranks as the the No. 6 cornerback in the 2022 class and a top-40 prospect, per 247 Sports.
Next weekend, Lukus will be at Clemson for the program’s Elite Retreat weekend. A visit to Ohio State could come later in June, too.
Lukus won’t be the only blue-chip target of note from UNC at Clemson’s Elite Retreat. Travis Shaw, a 5-star defensive tackle from Greensboro, will also be in attendance.
Clemson is the favorite to land Shaw, although Georgia has a pathway, too. North Carolina continues to make a push.
