Lee County High School football star Jayden Chalmers, a rising senior, jumped at the chance to play for his favorite college Monday, committing to Mack Brown and the University of North Carolina.
According to 24/7 Sports, Chalmers grew up a UNC fan and received a scholarship offer just after attending UNC’s summer football camp. He committed immediately.
Chalmers is a three-star prospect according to 24/7 Sports and held scholarship offers from East Carolina, Appalachian State, Army, Air Force, and others.
At Lee County last season he had four interceptions, 22 tackles and returned a fumble for a touchdown. He also returned kicks and played sparingly on offense.
Chalmers is one of a few Yellow Jackets projected to play at the next level, led by defensive end prospect Desmond Evans, who ranks among the best recruits in the country. Evans has yet to commit to a school, but announced his Top 10 list in May consisting of Alabama, Clemson, Duke, Florida, UNC, NC State, Ohio State, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia Tech.
