Atlanta Pace Academy four-star defensive lineman Hevin Brown-Shuler is visiting North Carolina this weekend for the Tar Heels’ game against Pitt. Brown-Shuler’s last visit to Chapel Hill was on March 5.

Brown-Shuler is the No. 41 overall prospect and No. 7 defensive lineman in the 2024 cycle, according to the On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. He is also the No. 8 player in Georgia.

The 6-foot-2.5, 300-pound prospect has received 27 offers. He told On3’s Jeremy Johnson on Oct. 9 that he hopes to cut down that list to “10 or eight” schools.

“I’m really starting to think about it and where I want to go,” Brown-Shuler said. “I’m a junior now. It’s getting close to time to make some cut-throat decisions. I’m really about to start narrowing the list down. That should be coming soon.”

“I definitely want to be committed prior to my senior season so that I can focus on my senior year,” he added. “I don’t have to deal with the media saying, ‘Where are you going,’ so I’ll probably do it then.”

According to the On3 Recruiting Prediction MachineSouth Carolina has a close lead for his commitment at 31.3%. North Carolina’s odds for Brown-Shuler’s pledge are currently 5.1%

RPM was released to the public in December. The On3 engineering group teamed up with Spiny.ai to create the industry’s first algorithm and machine learning-based product to predict where athletes will attend college. 

It factors in machine learning, social sentiment, visits and historical trends. However, expert predictions are still a big piece of the RPM equation.

Brown-Shuler has an On3 NIL Valuation of $85K. The On3 NIL Valuation is an index that looks to set the standard market value for both high school and college-level athletes. The NIL valuation does not act as a tracker of the value of NIL deals an athlete has completed to date. It rather signifies an athlete’s value at a certain moment in time.
