UNC remains in contention for top-50 forward Jairus Hamilton, battling others including Wake Forest and NC State. UNC is also on the list for five-star forward Zion Williamson.

Back spasms limit Romeo Langford at World Cup

This weekend in Egypt, Romeo Langford rode a camel, visited the pyramids and played seven minutes of basketball. Lower back spasms limited the New Albany High five-star guard at the Under-19 FIBA World Cup. Langford scored five points before the injury forced him out of USA's 108-48 victory against Iran Saturday. He did not play Sunday in the 109-68 win against Angola. (Louisville Courier-Journal)

UNC Showing Interest in 2019 PF Francis Okoro

Considering he's only been playing basketball for three years, forward Francis Okoro is an impressive recruit. With recent gains he's made, the rising junior is knocking on the door of elite status. Already listing offers from Illinois, Missouri, Vanderbilt, Northwestern, Purdue, Virginia Tech, Tennessee and many others, Okoro is also seeing UNC and Kansas turn up their interest. (Rivals.com)

Team USA experience remains close to Wendell Moore's heart, stomach

Wendell Moore Jr. said the experience of making the American team and playing in such a prestigious tournament has made him a better player. That might be a scary thought for South Piedmont 3A Conference teams. Moore Jr. will have plenty of help during the upcoming season. The Cox Mill Chargers also have the most high-profile transfer in Cabarrus County: Rechon Black. (Independent Tribune)

Four-star SF Joey Baker discusses ACC schools in pursuit of him

Since June 15 when coaches could begin contacting recruits in the 2019 class, 4-star small forward Joey Baker said he’s been in consistent contact with UNC, UCLA, Louisville, NC State, and Florida. Georgia Tech is the most recent offer and he’s also been in touch with Duke lately. Baker’s most recent visits were to UNC and Duke last basketball season, and he visited NC State Wednesday.

UNC Basketball Commit Rechon Black Transferring Back Home

When Rechon Black visited students at Dilworth Elementary School in Charlotte earlier this month, he didn't expect any of them to recognize him. Not long after he arrived, one of the students walked up to him and said, "You play for North Carolina, don't you?" And that's why he's coming home. The 6-7 guard is transferring back to Concord, N.C. to play for Cox Mill High School. (Inside Carolina)

Wendell Moore stands out at the Nike Elite 100

Wendell Moore has been touted for years, but, over the past year, some doubted his level of improvement. Over the course of the past two months, however, Moore has not only squashed that perception through making the highly competitive USA Basketball team as well as winning a gold medal in Argentina and performance at the Elite 100, but, perhaps, raised expectations.

Romeo Langford: "I like the way North Carolina plays"

Last week, Romeo Langford listed Indiana, North Carolina, Louisville, Kentucky, Duke, Purdue, UCLA and Vanderbilt as some of his top schools. UNC's Roy Williams watched Langford at USA training camp for two days. "I like the way North Carolina plays," Langford said. "I like Coach Williams and his coaching staff. He came to visit me three days after they won the national championship." (Louisville Courier-Journal)

Romeo Langford Blog: Wheels up to Egypt with the USA U19 Team

New Albany (Ind.) star Romeo Langford is the No. 1 shooting guard and No. 5 overall recruit in the ESPN 100: "I know people want to know about my recruitment and it’s going pretty well. My parents and I decided when it all started that the coaches would go through them to contact me. I do know that by the end of the summer I want to cut my list down to about seven schools." (USA Today)

UNC, Kansas in good shape with Matthew Hurt

Matthew Hurt, one of the most polished forwards in high school basketball, has not been short of college interest as a few blue blood programs remain heavily in the mix. Minnesota also remains in the mix thanks to several factors - and his family tie to the program doesn't hurt, either. However, North Carolina and Kansas may be the early leaders at this point.

Zion Williamson poised for busy stretch

Two summers from now, for the 2019 NBA Draft, Zion Williamson of Spartanburg Day might hear his named called...and possibly called first. But that’s down the road. Right now the 6-foot-6 phenom is focused on returning to his AAU schedule this weekend in Los Angeles fully healed from a deep knee bruise that forced him to shut things down for several weeks.

One On One With Five Star 2018 SG Romeo Langford

Which coaches have you noticed staying to watch you (at the USA U-19 Trials)? Romeo Langford: "I think pretty much Louisville, North Carolina and Kansas. I saw Roy Williams from North Carolina here and Archie Miller from Indiana too." What were your thoughts on having those coaches there for you? RL: "It meant a lot to me, it showed they were really serious in showing how much they wanted me." (247 Sports)
