Tar Heels Today: Recruiting notes, scores and schedules, and an interesting tweet


Basketball and football recruits attend Saturday's game, Roy is back on the recruiting trail, Coby White sets a new standard, UNC scores and schedules, and an interesting tweet in this edition of Tar Heels Today.

Saturday News & Notes:

Tough loss for the Tar Heels against NC State yesterday. Here's what coaches Roy Williams and Kevin Keatts had to say following the game. And video of Roy's press conference if you'd prefer to watch.

Several basketball recruits attended the game, including 2019 PF Armando Bacot, 2018 invited-walkon PG Marque Maultsby, and 2018 PG signee Rechon Black. These were all unofficial visits.

It was also a big football recruiting weekend, and several top recruits attended the game as part of Junior Weekend. Here's a photo gallery of the recruits.

In other recruting news, 2019 UNC PG commit Jeremiah Francis gave an update on his left knee injury, which he says is at about 65% recovered. Francis hopes to make it back by the end of the season.

Huge congratulations to 2018 UNC signee Coby White who just became the state of North Carolina's all-time high school scoring leader (3,325 pts.), surpassing one-time UNC commit JamesOn Curry.

Roy Williams is scheduled to be back on the recruiting trail tonight in Cleveland, Ohio, watching 2019 PF Alonzo Gaffney.

Thought for the Day:

Photo of the Day:

This must be an obvious trolling attempt by the Philadelphia 76ers because I don't see any "former" Tar Heels in this photo. There's life-long Tar Heel Danny Green and some Larry Drew fella. A lot of the comments on this photo are hilarious.
