Tony Bradley Looking for Immediate Impact at UNC

When Tony Bradley committed to UNC on Sept. 2, he did so knowing senior big man Brice Johnson was on the way out. Replacing Johnson will be no easy task, but can Bradley at least make a significant impact? "I feel that I can, especially with Brice leaving," Bradley told SNY.tv Wednesday following practice for Friday's Jordan Brand Classic at Barclays Center. (Zag's Blog)

Terrance Ferguson all but eliminates Tar Heels

The fairy tale of adding five star recruit Terrance Ferguson to the 2016 class has come to an end for UNC. The sharp-shooting recruit is set to make his college announcement sometime this week according to a tweet he sent out on Tuesday.

From the Sidelines: 6'6 2018 Rechon "Leaky" Black

This past week, Rechon Black attended the inaugural Underclassman All-American game held in Indianapolis, Indiana April 6th. The AA camp featured the top 20 players from the 2018 and 2019 class. Naturally, the sophomore point guard that has already committed to Roy Williams and the University of North Carolina would be a no-brainer for this prestigious event. (Phenom Hoop Report)

2016 5-Star Wing Terrance Ferguson Planning More Visits

Terrance Ferguson told 247Sports at the Nike Hoop Summit that he plans to take a couple more visits before making a decision. Ferguson, a 5-star 6-7 wing from Dallas (Texas) Advanced Prep International, listed UNC, Kansas, Arizona, Baylor, Maryland and N.C. State as the six schools he is considering.

Concord sophomore guard Leaky Black, family ‘comfortable’ with commitment to play for UNC

Black, who goes by the nickname "Leaky" and will turn 17 in June, is a lanky 6-foot-7, 170-pound point guard with extremely long arms. UNC coach Roy Williams offered Black a scholarship in December, and the Concord standout committed to the Tar Heels weeks later. (Charlotte Observer)

Tony Bradley ready to be Tar Heels next star

The Tar Heels didn’t have their usual top recruiting class in 2015, instead Roy Williams built his team around previous classes. But that didn’t last long. Williams has put together an impressive class for 2016 highlighted by center Tony Bradley Jr. The 6-foot-10 center out of Florida is ready to be the next big man in Williams’ offense, which likes to get up-and-down the floor. That’s exactly what Bradley can do. (Keeping It Heel)
