Roy Williams Offers 2018 PF E.J. MontgomeryUNC isn't quite done in the class of 2018 after all. Following a visit to Marietta (Ga.) Wheeler High School on Wednesday, Roy Williams offered a scholarship to 2018 target E.J. Montgomery, Wheeler coach Larry Thompson confirmed to Inside Carolina.

Nassir Little listed among top 2018 small forwardsI’m not exactly going out on a limb here because we already have him ranked No. 3 at his position, but I could see Nassir Little eventually passing the guys ahead of him. He’s not as skilled as R.J. Barrett or quite the overwhelming athlete Zion Williamson is, but he’s improving at a rapid rate and seems to have another level he can reach at North Carolina and beyond.

Coby White Listed Among Top 2018 Shooting GuardsIf I’m a North Carolina fan, I’m pretty excited about Coby White. The Tar Heels are going to need a quality perimeter scorer next year and I think White is ready to step in and make a major contribution. He likes to play fast, has loads of confidence and should give Roy Williams a necessary shot of energy. White could spend minutes running the offense as a point guard, too. (Rivals.com)

Evan Daniels evaluates 2018 PF E.J. MontgomeryUNC watched Montgomery play on Thursday night and I imagine they were impressed considering he scored 39 points and reeled in 15 boards. Montgomery Sr. told me that all 11 schools on the list have offered. UNC was on said list. I was beyond impressed in my last viewing of Montgomery. At 6-foot-10, he’s very versatile, mobile, athletic and has a versatile scoring package. (247 Sports)
