5 North Carolina commits hope to punch ticket to state championship on Friday

As we head into the semifinal round of state playoff tournaments around the country, five future Tar Heels hope to punch their ticket to compete for a state championship with a win on Friday night.

Last week, only Jordyn Adams of Green Hope High School was eliminated, leaving several commits vying to continue their high school careers by one more game over the weekend.

To keep track of where all the action will be taking place this weekend, Tar Heels DieHards has put together its weekly recruiting map. Here’s where you can catch all five games on Friday night:
