UNC basketball recruiting roundup: De'Monte Buckingham, Shaun Kirk, etc.
The UNC basketball recruiting trail was relatively quiet over the past week, but there were a few nuggets worth sharing:
, a 2016 6'3" shooting guard from Richmond, Va., visited Chapel Hill Friday night for the Tar Heels' game against UNC Pembroke. Here's a video of Buckingham in action
, a 2016 small forward from Red Springs, NC, visited UNC for Late Night with Roy last weekend
. There's not a lot of video on Kirk, but I was able to find this brief clip showing his athleticism
There's been nothing new mentioned publicly regarding UNC on the Rashad Vaughn
(2014 SG) front, but it appears that the leaders at this point are UNLV and Iowa State, according to many recruiting analysts.
Scout.com released an interesting "Ultimate 100" list
of basketball recruits regardless of class, and 3 Tar Heel recruits made the top-10: #2 Harry Giles
(2016 PF), #7 Diamond Stone
(2015 C), and #10 Jayson Tatum
is a 2016 combo guard and the younger brother of former UNC star and current San Antonio Spur Danny Green. He doesn't seem to be receiving high interest from UNC yet, but he's rated in the 3-4 star range
, is starting to receive some Division-I offers, and had an informative article written about him last week
Keeping tabs on former UNC recruits, 2014 shooting guard Devin Booker
committed to Kentucky on Thursday. Hours later, 2014 shooting guard James Blackmon, Jr.
re-committed to Indiana after de-committing from the Hoosiers earlier in the recruiting process.
