College Basketball Recruiting News & Notes

We thought we'd try something new and begin expanding our coverage to follow some of the higher-profile national recruiting battles that aren't necessarily UNC related. Have a look at THT's new College Basketball Recruiting Section and let us know what you think and how we can improve it.

Analysis: 2017 SG Brandon Randolph

North Carolina offered two 2017 shooting guards this week. This brings the total number of players the Tar Heels have offered this cycle to eight. UNC already has one commitment in 2017 from combo guard Jalek Felton Brandon Randolph (Yonkers, NY/Westtown School) and Andrew Platek (Northfield, MA/Northfield Mount Hermon) got the call this week from Roy Williams and UNC.

Roy Williams keeping an eye on 2017 PG Nick Weatherspoon

Four-star point guard Nick Weatherspoon had a big weekend in Atlanta at the second stop of the Adidas Gauntlet. The Mississippi native averaged 25.8 points, 4.8 assists and 4.8 rebounds per game for MBA Hoops. Weatherspoon already had a healthy list of schools involved in his recruitment, but North Carolina became involved over the weekend and Roy Williams finished the weekend watching him play.

Kevin Knox says he has no favorites at the moment

Kevin Knox said the only reason he visited Duke and UNC so early in the process is because he was in the area to visit his grandfather. He also said Kentucky has been in regular contact since the beginning of his high school season and it didn’t really matter that the scholarship offer came so much later than some other schools. “As of now, I’m open to everyone. I really have no favorites,” he said. (Lexington Herald-Leader)

UNC offers 2017 sharp shooter Andrew Platek

2017 shooting guard Andrew Platek announced on Twitter that he has been offered by North Carolina. Platek, 6-4, 190-pounds from Northfield (Mass.) Northfield Mount Hermon High School, has established himself as one of the top shooters in the 2017 class. He will rise from his No. 163 ranking in the 247Sports Composite. (Carolina Blue)

Too tall to play quarterback, Kevin Knox became a 5-star basketball recruit instead

The scariest thing about Kevin Knox's origin story is that it's not even close to being complete. He doesn't turn 17 years old until August and already stands 6'9 with a 7-foot wingspan and a size-18 shoe. He's grown two inches every year since entering high school and isn't finished yet. Duke, Kentucky and North Carolina have each offered and told him he's a priority on the wing. (SB Nation)

Roy Williams Offers 2017 SG Brandon Randolph

Brandon Randolph continues to pile up high-major offers after a strong start on the Nike EYBL circuit. The 6-foot-6, 175-pound Class of 2017 shooting guard from the PSA Cardinals picked up offers from North Carolina and Oregon on Tuesday. That came after he added offers last week from Arizona, Villanova, Syracuse, Kansas, Notre Dame and DePaul. (Zag's Blog)

Second Evaluation Period Top Performers

Mohamed Bamba continues to assert himself as one of the best players on the EYBL circuit. Bamba has always possessed a ton of talent and a world of potential, but now he is beginning to turn that potential into consistent production. Currently Bamba isn’t really naming schools, but Kentucky, Duke, UNC, Villanova, Wake Forest, Kansas, and others seem to be showing a ton of attention. (Scout.com)
