After Will Shipley announced his commitment to Clemson on Tuesday afternoon, Twitter was filled with congratulatory messages. Scattered amongst all those tweets was one from UNC QB commit Drake Mayes, who also congratulated Shipley, while putting his own playful spin on it.

A Clemson and UNC matchup in Charlotte is something many think will happen as early as next season. If so, it surely will provide for plenty of intriguing storylines, on and off of the field.
For much of Shipley’s recruitment, Mack Brown and UNC were thought to be one of the major players in his recruitment, but in the end it really came down to Clemson and Notre Dame. However; make no mistake, despite missing on this kid, the Heels have been recruiting at a level not seen since the last time Brown was coaching in Chapel Hill. Way back around the turn of the century.
While the Heels may be recruiting well, Tuesday was just another reminder that Clemson is still the alpha dog in the ACC.
