Roy Williams' recruiting blueprint works wonders

Despite missing out on a number of recent recruits to Duke, Kansas and Kentucky, the Tar Heels have made more trips to the Final Four than any of those programs since Williams arrived in Chapel Hill. It is due to Williams’ ability to connect with high school recruits that translates later on to wins. “How genuine (Williams) is, in a face-to-face situation, it is almost overwhelming,” Wes Miller said.
