2019 Rivals150: Analysts weigh in on updated rankings

Just in time for spring travel ball, the 2019 Rivals150 has been updated but there’s little change at the top where the top five remains unchanged. Vernon Carey still leads the way in front of James Wiseman, Charles Bassey, Cole Anthony and Matthew Hurt. Three new five-stars debut in this update, headlined by La Porte (Ind.) La Lumiere big man Isaiah Stewart. (Rivals.com)

Analyzing the likely one-and-done 2018 recruits

Nassir Little enters college basketball as one of the fastest rising prospects in the country. Little has decent size at 6-foot-6 but plays much bigger, given his 7-foot-1 wingspan. With his of length, athleticism and motor, Little easily will be able to play the three and four at the next level. UNC is getting a recruit who's made a major name for himself with NBA personnel.

North Carolina signee Rechon Black is ranked No. 76 in the Final 247Sports rankings of the 2018 class released on Thursday. Black, a 6-8 guard/wing from Concord (N.C.)

North Carolina lands top 10 basketball recruiting class

North Carolina is out from under the cloud, the narrative went. Now Tar Heels coach Roy Williams will find it significantly easier on the recruiting trail. But the timeline didn’t quite match up: Just 12 days earlier, UNC landed the final piece in what would become the nation’s No. 9 class in the 247Sports Composite, and Williams’ first top 10 recruit since the investigation started. (Inside Carolina)

Final 2018 Rankings: Nassir Little Completes Climb

North Carolina basketball signee Nassir Little is No. 2 in final 247Sports rankings for the class of 2018 that were released on Thursday.

Little, a 6-7, 220-pound small forward from Orlando, Fla., signed with UNC in November and will enroll in June. (Inside Carolina)

Where will Jordan Brown, the nation's top uncommitted big man, sign?

The Tar Heels have been primarily communicating with Jordan Brown's father. However, their championship pedigree and Roy Williams' history of producing NBA level big men (Tony Bradley, Ed Davis, John Henson, Isaiah Hicks, Tyler Zeller) could give them more than just an outside shot. However, UNC may be on the outside looking in. Prediction: Stanford. (Sporting News)

Roy Williams shares what coaches use against North Carolina in recruiting

UNC has had tons of success on the floor in the last half decade, but the Tar Heels aren’t recruiting at the level of programs such as Kentucky and Duke. A lot of that has to do with the NCAA’s lengthy academic investigation, which ended last fall. Roy Williams joined the David Glenn Show on Friday and shared details on how opposing coaches recruit against the Tar Heels. (DieHards.com)

Roy Williams visiting top 2019 recruit Vernon Carey

After visiting 2019 center Will Baker on Monday, Roy Williams is heading to Florida to visit one of the top recruits in the class. According to Scout’s Evan Daniels, Williams is visiting five-star power forward Vernon Carey Jr. on Wednesday. Carey is ranked as the No. 2 recruit in the 247 Sports’ rankings and the top player at his position and in Florida. (Keeping It Heel)

Roy Williams visits 5-star power forward Will Baker before quiet period

Last week, Roy Williams visited 5-star power forward Matthew Hurt. On Monday, Williams was expected to be the second of four college coaches in Austin, Texas, this week to see 5-star big man Will Baker, according to ESPN’s Adam Finkelstein. Texas’ Shaka Smart visited Sunday, and Texas A&M and UCLA are set to visit Baker on Tuesday and Wednesday. (DieHards.com)

Nassir Little jumps to No. 2 in final Rivals150 2018 college basketball recruit rankings

The final Rivals150 for the class of 2018 is complete and Duke-bound wing R.J. Barrett held off a strong charge from UNC-bound forward Nassir Little to retain the No. 1 spot. "I love the improvement that Little has shown and I feel he’s got another level he can still go to. That being said, there just wasn’t any way I could justify dropping Barrett out of the top spot." (Rivals.com)

How would Sacha Killeya-Jones fit at UNC?

On Friday, news emerged that UNC is interested in Kentucky transfer Sacha Killeya-Jones. After two seasons coming off the bench in Lexington, the 6-10 forward got a full release from the Wildcats. While bringing in transfers hasn’t always been Roy Williams’ style (Cameron Johnson was the first in several years), it makes sense that the Tar Heels would be interested in Killeya-Jones.
