All Things ACC provides our readers the latest on recruiting for each program in the conference, including Notre Dame.  Check out the latest news surrounding the recruiting world.

Tyler Shough

6-foot-4, 185 pounds
Hamilton HS, AZ

Shough is a big-time quarterback for the Heels in 2018, as the Arizona prospect is heading to the east coast.  Shough is rated as a 4-star quarterback by 247Sports, No. 252 nationally, No. 10 pro-style quarterback, and No. 2 player in the state.

He earned an offer from the Tar Heels back in May and recently attended the UNC camp, giving the coaches and himself a better chance to learn about the program.  One day later, he announced his commitment. 

Shough is the 6th commitment for UNC and the first quarterback committed for 2018.  The Tar Heels have done a lot of their recruiting around the southeast, but this is the first prospect from the west.

Nadir Thompson

5-foot-10, 165 pounds
Southern Nash, NC

Thompson continues the Hokies recent success for 2018 and in the state of North Carolina, as he is now the fourth commitment from the state.  Thompson was once committed to NC State but decommitted a few months back.

He earned the Hokies offer last summer and could be looked at as a cornerback.
