UNC wins advantage in recruiting wars

The alarming thing for Duke is that North Carolina's 2009 freshman class, like the 2006 class, is rated No.1 in the nation by scout.com after the early signing period.

Duke has signed two forwards who are possible McDonald's All-Americans in Ravenscroft High's Ryan Kelly and Mason Plumlee of the Christ School in Arden.

But North Carolina commitment John Henson of Tampa, Fla., is rated more highly than Kelly and Plumlee in the Tar Heels' deep class. Bob Gibbons said the current recruiting results predict North Carolina will stay ahead of Duke. (Charlotte Observer)
