-Roy Williams handed out three scholarship offers last week to 2014 5-star shooting guard Noah Vonleh, 2013 4-star center Kennedy Meeks and 2013 4-star forward Austin Nichols. Meeks hopes to trim his list to five soon
, while Nichols has been invited to try out
for the US Under-18 Junior National team. Nichols' father had some insightful comments
on the recruiting process.
-Troy Williams, a 2013 5-star small forward, was set to choose between UNC and Kentucky last week but woke up unsure of his decision and postponed his announcement
indefinitely. Here's some nice footage
of Williams at last week's Hampton EYBL event.
-2013 power forward Marcus Lee (Antioch, CA) has seen his stock rise
dramatically over the past few weeks

from the UNC staff recently.
