Why Seventh Woods' visit is huge for the Heels

This weekend, Seventh Woods, the No. 6 combo guard in the 2016 class, is on his official visit to North Carolina. It's been a long courtship between UNC and Woods, a Columbia, S.C. native. Roy Williams and company have recruited the talented guard for roughly four years. The general thought is that it will come down to the Tar Heels and the Gamecocks for Woods. (Carolina Blue)

Key basketball recruits on campuses this weekend

Five-star power forward Edrice Adebayo will be making his official visit to Auburn this weekend. Another visit to keep a close eye on is in Durham as Javin DeLaurier visits Duke.

Recruiting: UNC's ongoing struggles; basketball windfall coming to ACC

UNC coach Roy Williams has been open about his struggles to get recruits on campus – and to commit to UNC in light of the ongoing NCAA investigation into academic fraud. Robinson isn’t the only visit UNC has scheduled for this fall. According to Inside Carolina, the Tar Heels are also bringing in shooting guard Seventh Woods (No. 34 scout, No. 53 ESPN) and Finland's Lauri Markannen, but it’s worth noting that none of those players are ranked in the top 30 of the class of 2016.
