Jeremiah Francis, the 6-foot-3 point guard from Pickerington Central (OH) High School, announced his commitment to North Carolina on Friday via Twitter.

Francis spoke with D1Vision about the Tar Heels on Thursday:

“It speaks for itself,” Francis said via phone. “Coach Roy [Williams] really loves his point guards. 800 plus wins, multiple final fours, and four national championships. You can’t go wrong with North Carolina. Coach Williams really loves his point guards which is what I like about UNC as well.”

According to 247Sports, Francis is ranked as the No. 61 overall player in the Class of 2019 and the No. 1 player from the state of Ohio. He is the first commit in UNC’s 2019 class.

Francis’ commitment comes a little more than a week after receiving an offer from the Tar Heels (Aug. 2). He chose UNC over schools such as West Virginia, Indiana, Purdue, Florida State, Missouri, Iowa, TCU, Ohio State, and Dayton.

When asked about what he’s looking for in a school, Francis said Thursday, “I’m looking for a place that is a second home to me and where I know I’ll be a better person and player. I just want to be welcomed, like it’s a family.”
