Manatee defensive back Clinton Heaven has committed to North Carolina, according to Manatee assistant coach Chris Conboy.

One of the area's most hotly-recruited players, Heaven also had offers from West Virginia and Vanderbilt, among others.

A four-year starter who appeared in two state championship games with the Hurricanes, Heaven had 80 tackles, one sack and five passes defended this year for Manatee, which on the Class 7A state championship.

Heaven is the third Manatee senior to commit to a Division I school, joining running back Leon Allen (Western Kentucky) and linebacker Darius White (Iowa State).

  1. Great get for Coach Fedora. The ACC needs to improve and getting players of this caliber (N.C. State just got a verbal from Kenderius Whitehead) certainly will help accomplish that.
