A popular North Carolina blog has a different view and, let’s just say, isn’t all that thrilled about the Panthers coming aboard. Let’s examine some of their arguments.

Kendall Fuller Commits to Virginia Tech Over Clemson (SB Nation Recruiting)

Kendall Fuller, a top cornerback recruit out of Olney (Md.) Our Lady of Good Counsel High School, committed to the Virginia Tech Hokies over the Clemson Tigers Sunday during the final round of ESPN’s Gridiron Kings competition.
