Nassir Little Lists UNC Among 5 Official Visits

A couple weeks ago, 2018 5-star wing Nassir Little trimmed his list of schools to five. UNC, Arizona, Duke, Georgia Tech, and Miami remain in the mix, and he’s now set official visits to each school. UNC (Sept. 8): “It’s one of those schools I always watched growing up. My dad’s a Carolina fan. They just won the national championship. They have always been a school I like to watch.” (Rivals.com)

Will UNC basketball have too many point guards in 2019?

With Jeremiah Francis aboard, Roy Williams can begin projecting his roster all the way out to the 2019-2020 season. UNC will look to Jalek Felton and incoming freshmen Coby White and Rechon Black at point guard in 2018-19 after Joel Berry graduates. Felton, White, and Black are all combo guards, capable of playing either point or shooting guard. (ACC Sports Journal)

Nate Laszewski Recruitment Rundown

Arizona coach Sean Miller recruited former big man Kaleb Tarczewski from the same travel program as Nate Laszewski’s. Indiana offers Laszewski the chance to play near home. Lastly, UNC will enroll his former teammate at Northfield Mount Hermon, Andrew Platek, this fall and the idea of suiting up for the defending national champions may weigh heavily. Wisconsin has family ties with Laszewski as well. (Rivals.com)

2020 Wing Jalen Johnson Planning UNC Visit

Up next for Johnson is a visit to UNC in September. "I like how Coach Williams has had plenty of people who could have went 1-and-done, but it's a family down there," he said. "That helps them win a lot." (NY2LA Sports)

And again, Coach Williams. I couldn't say 'no' to that." (Eleven Warriors)
