Mack Brown and the UNC football program have added another weapon to their offense for the 2023 season. And they went to the Atlantic Coast Conference to do so.
On Wednesday, former Georgia Tech wide receiver Nate McCollum pledged his verbal commitment to the program. He becomes the second wide receiver to transfer to North Carolina, joining Devontez Walker who committed after leaving Kent State.
The 5-foot-11, 185-pound McCollum visited UNC last week and the visit did enough to solidify a commitment. He led Georgia Tech with 60 receptions for 655 yards and three touchdowns while playing in 11 games for the Yellow Jackets.

UNC has now added another target for quarterback Drake Maye who is coming off a big first season as the starter. With Josh Downs and Antoine Green leaving the program, it was crucial for UNC to re-load. And they did so through the transfer portal.
McCollum has two years of eligibility left including an extra COVID year.
