Marcus Paige, Alex Oriakhi are key for UNC basketball’s rebuilding

Roy Williams is already planning to welcome a four-man recruiting class that includes Marcus Paige, a point guard from Ames, Iowa, who played earlier this week in the McDonald’s All-American game. It’s unlikely the Tar Heels’ recruiting class grows, given the great majority of prospects are already committed. UNC could be a potential landing spot, though, for Alex Oriakhi, a 6-foot-9 forward who recently completed his junior season at Connecticut. The Huskies will be ineligible for the 2013 NCAA tournament because of academic violations, and Oriakhi has informed the school of his intention to transfer. (Charlotte Observer)
