Mableton (Ga.) Whitefield Academy three-star safety Ayden Duncanson has flipped his commitment from East Carolina to North Carolina, announcing the news Sunday on social media.

First off I want to thank Coach Houston, Coach Ellis, Coach Harrell, and the rest of the East Carolina coaching staff for everything that they have done for me,” Duncanson said in a social media post. “I wish the team the best going forward and no love has been lost, but after careful thought and prayer, I’ve decided to decommit from ECU.

“With that being said, I am excited to announce that I am changing my commitment to The University of North Carolina Chapel Hill!! I want to thank Coach Brown and Coach Warren for really extending love to my family from the start. And thank the rest of the coaches for extending that love after getting to know me and also for this opportunity. This is what is best for my future on the field and off the field and also what is best for my family.”

Duncanson is the No. 1072 overall recruit and No. 96 safety in the 2023 cycle, according to the On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies.

He currently has an On3 NIL Valuation of $5.9k. 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.
