Mack Brown and the UNC football program have their second commitment in the 2023 recruiting class.

On Tuesday, three-star offensive tackle Nolan McConnell pledged his verbal commitment to the Tar Heels, ending his recruitment after picking up a total of 15 offers. McConnell picked the Tar Heels over programs like Arkansas, Boston College, Wake Forest, Florida State, Louisville, Duke, NC State, Ole Miss and Pitt among others.

The 6-foot-6, 280-pound McConnell is ranked No. 432 overall, No. 32 offensive tackle and No. 7 player in the state of Virginia per the 247Sports recruiting rankings. He now joins quarterback Tad Hudson as the two commits in 2023 for the Tar Heels.

The Virginia native was considered a slight lean to UVA by the 247Sports crystal ball at one point but Brown and his staff have once again gone into the state and landed a recruit.
