North Carolina landed a major piece for the future of its running game on Thursday, as four-star recruit C.J. Cotman committed to the Tar Heels.

The 5-foot-10, 175-pounder is the 24th-ranked running back in the class of 2017, and is listed by ESPN as the 245th overall prospect in the country.

Cotman held offers from a number of Power 5 programs, including Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, and Ohio State, before deciding to attend North Carolina.

With the Tar Heels losing star running back Elijah Hood to the NFL, Cotman could be the man to fill his shoes when the 2017 season kicks off.
