Sophomore guard Rechon Black has become a hot commodity

Nicknamed “Leaky” based on his middle name, Malik, Rechon Black is a blue-chip talent who possesses exceptional ball skills for a 6-6 guard. Black is being groomed as a point guard and it’s easy to understand why. He’s a highly coordinated dribbler and passer with length and improving athleticism, and he’s drawing comparisons to N.C. product and current Duke freshman Brandon Ingram. (Scout.com)

Commit Analysis: What Brandon Robinson brings to UNC

Outside of freshman Kenny Williams, there is a glaring need for outside shooting on UNC's 2016-2017 roster. Brandon Robinson, a 6-5 wing shooter and playmaker from Douglasville, Ga, is the perfect candidate to rectify this issue. Robinson was one of the top shooters on the travel circuit in July. He is extremely comfortable on the catch and shoot from the wing either in the half court offense or in transition. (Carolina Blue)

Four-star shooting guard Brandon Robinson committed to Roy Williams and North Carolina on Monday, he told Scout. “I’ve decided to go to North Carolina,” Robinson said. “I’ve just prayed about it and thought about it for a long time. I compared it to all the others schools that were recruiting me based on the style of play and just the need for me there and the want for me there.” (Inside Carolina)
