Four-star WR spurns Clemson and Georgia, will head to this school

One of 2017's top recruits has spurned two traditional recruiting powers.

Four-star wide receiver J.T. Cauthen (6-foot-2, 210 pounds, Waxhaw, NC) is one of the top receivers of the 2017 recruiting class, and he is currently committed to the North Carolina Tar Heels.

Cauthen was also considering Georgia and Clemson, with 247Sports touting the Tigers as the initial favorite. However, North Carolina's No. 4 recruit decided to stay in state and will give the Tar Heels a nice boost in a few years.

This commitment is the latest in a series of wins for North Carolina. After getting to the ACC Championship Game this season, the Tar Heels managed to re-sign head coach Larry Fedora to a seven-year extension. Cauthen becomes North Carolina's third commit of the 2017 class, with all three being rated as four-stars by 247Sports.
