Mentor High School junior wide receiver Brandon Fritts has orally committed to attend the University of North Carolina in fall 2014 on a football scholarship, according to multiple published media reports.

Fritts is quoted in The Plain Dealer as describing UNC as "the perfect place for me."

The offensive playmaker recorded 42 catches while amassing 759 yards and 10 touchdowns during the 2012 regular season.

In verbally pledging to become a Tar Heel and to play in the Atlantic Coast Conference, the 6-foot-4, 215-pound junior declined official offers from several Mid-American Conference schools.

When Fritts arrives in Chapel Hill, N.C., he'll be reunited with his quarterback for the past two seasons, Mitch Trubisky. Trubisky also signed with the Tar Heels and is currently enrolled at UNC.

Friitts announced his decision on Twitter Monday night, and some of his teammates and coaches used the social media site to send him congratulatory messages.
