Marquise Williams to North Carolina

According to ESPN, Marquise Williams has committed to North Carolina.  I know no one was really expecting him to commit to the Wolverines after Sousa's commitment, but we were a finalist for his services and he was a top prospect for us at one point.

Counting a redshirt year, I wonder if Williams will ever play a down for the coach who recruited him?  I know Davis has announced his intention to stay at UNC, but I can't imagine him not getting an "offer he can't refuse" within the next two years.  If he gets UNC to an elite level, a school where a lot more resources are dedicated to football than basketball will probably talk him into leaving.

I like his choice after the Sousa commit.  I think North Carolina is going to be come a consistent ACC contender with Butch Davis at the helm and I think this kid made a great choice.
