January 8, 2012North Carolina added three players officially to its roster over the weekend, as Terrance Knox, Shakeel Rashad, and Patton Robinette have arrived in Chapel Hill and enrolled for the spring semester.
Classes for the spring semester at UNC begin Monday.
There was high drama with Robinette, as he came to Chapel Hill Saturday without assurances that he was going to enroll.
Vanderbilt and Iowa made a late push for his services---coming for in-home visits with him last Thursday---but following an in-home visit Wednesday with head coach Larry Fedora and offensive coordinator Blake Anderson, Robinette traveled to Chapel Hill on Saturday.
Robinette didn't go through the renewal paperwork right away, but he confirmed Saturday evening to the Knoxville News that he is enrolling at UNC on Sunday.
"We've looked at it from all different angles. My parents and my coaches, they've helped me look at it from all different angles and just make sure I make the best decision," said Robinette in a prior interview with Tar Heel Illustrated.
"But in the end, I just had a great feeling about North Carolina," he added.
"It's got a great athletic and academic tradition, and I really enjoyed the community in Chapel Hill. It's a great community. I just felt like it was the best fit for me."
The official addition of Robinette, a 6-5, 200-pounder ranked the No. 24 prospect in Tennessee in the Rivals.com Class of 2012 rankings, is a big one for the Tar Heels.
The three-star quarterback was the Gatorade Player of the Year in Tennessee this fall after leading Maryville High School to its second straight undefeated state championship.
