Dan Mastromatteo, Holy Spirit's heavily recruited linebacker, said 20 schools were after him before he committed to North Carolina in early June.
The Tar Heels were one of 12 Division 1 programs who wanted him, he added.
Mastromatteo decommitted in late July, then recommitted in early August. He is happy with his decision.
Spartans' coach Charles Roman said Boston College, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan State and Rutgers were among the teams that sought Mastromatteo.
