UNC Recruiting: 2025 TE Marshall Pritchett commits to the Tar Heels

2025 close end Marshall Pritchett has made a UNC commitment. He is rated as the #36 tight end in the class of 2025 by 247sports.com, however he is ranked 17th nationally at his position by ESPN’s recruiting rankings.

Marshall visited UNC in addition to Alabama, Wisconsin, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Miami, South Carolina, Michigan, Florida State, Tennessee, and Clemson in an unofficial capacity over the previous year. Not to mention, he had offers from a number of other universities, including Duke. In the end, he made a good choice.

Of course, “how many stars?” will be the first question asked. And although the 6’5 215-pound Pritchett is ranked as a 3-star, it should be remembered that when it comes to recruiting “stars,” tight ends are usually rated differently than other skill positions. In actuality, Arik Gilbert of LSU was the last TE to receive the 5-star rating in 2020.

Two stars were attached to Travis Kelce. George Kittle had an aggregate rating of three stars. Gronk was a 4-star even though he was regarded by many as the GOAT at the position. Freddie Kitchens, the tight ends coach at UNC and a former NFL head coach, is well aware that the TE position has become crucial to any successful offence in the modern game, as seen by the impact of these three extremely good players.

Pritchett is the newest member of an amazing tight end group.

Since Eric Ebron, Tar Heel football hasn’t had a real standout tight end, but Bryson Nesbit is getting close to that calibre. The Texas A&M transfer is generating a lot of enthusiasm. Both John Copenhaver and Jake Johnson have shown themselves to be reliable, all-around prospective NFL players. To further enhance the depth of an already outstanding position group, there is also incoming freshman Timothy Lawson, a 3-star prospect from Fort Myers, Florida, who is ranked 37th by ESPN at his position.
