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.

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.

2017 5-star PF P.J. Washington Plans to Visit UNC

2017 five-star Findlay Prep (NV) forward P.J. Washington has three programs he wants to officially visit and one he will probably visit. “Texas, UNC, Kentucky and probably Michigan State,” Washington said. “Roy Williams is a great coach and it’s humbling to have him recruit me,” Washington stated with a smile. For now, Washington says he isn’t planning on taking any visits during the summer. (247 Sports)

From the Sideline: 6'8 Jairus Hamilton

The AA camp featured the top 20 players from the 2018 and 2019 class. Prior to his selection to the Underclassman All-American class, Hamilton has seen his stock explode.

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)

Five-star SF Terrance Ferguson to visit UNC

Five-star small forward Terrance Ferguson told ESPN that North Carolina head coach Roy Williams offered him and he plans to visit Chapel Hill next week.

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. With late April as his personal decision deadline, Ferguson wants to first visit N.C. State and UNC before making a decision. (Carolina Blue)

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

Rechon Black, the consensus No. 1 recruit in North Carolina for the class of 2018, is ranked as high as No. 13 nationally. 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)

Tony Bradley Named to Jordan Brand Classic

Four Kentucky signees, three Duke signees, two Michigan State signees, and one North Carolina signee (Tony Bradley) highlight the list of 21 players named to the Jordan Brand Classic set for April 15 at Barclays Center.
