Roy's Radar: Class of 2019

This is an accurate look at the most serious basketball recruits currently being recruited by the UNC basketball staff. Included are photos, vitals, scouting analysis by Clint Jackson on each prospect. Clint Jackson on Wendell Moore: Moore is the ultimate quick twitch utility wing man. He is fast and has electric burst. Right now, his speed, athleticism and defense are his best traits. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Jeremiah Francis could continue North Carolina’s great PG tradition

Although UNC basketball coach Roy Williams is not done filling out his 2018 recruiting class, his 2019 recruiting efforts began with a bang Friday when 4-star point guard Jeremiah Francis made his verbal commitment to the Tar Heels. In the process, Francis -- an Ohio native -- turned down interest from hometown favorite Ohio State (his father, Jerry, was a star player for the Buckeyes in the 1980s). (FanRag Sports)

Updated Scout 2018 Top 100 College Basketball Recruits

For now, Marvin Bagley is still the No. 1 prospect in the 2018 recruiting class. Bagley, in our opinion, has separated himself from his peers and is far and away the top recruit in all of high school basketball. Zion Williamson, Cameron Reddish, Romeo Langford, Tre Jones, Darius Garland, Immanuel Quickley and Simi Shittu all claimed spots in the updated 2018 top 10. (Scout.com)

Q&A With Top-Ranked 2019 PF Vernon Carey, Jr

While some may have penciled him to the Hurricanes of Miami, his father's alma mater, three blue bloods of college basketball, Kansas, North Carolina, and Duke, offered 247Sports' current top-ranked player in the class of 2019 this week. We caught up with Vernon Carey, Jr. to discuss his successful AAU season, earning a gold medal, and the latest in his recruitment. (247 Sports)

Video: Jeremiah Francis Sophomore Season Highlights

Jeremiah Francis, a 4-star point guard from the 2019 recruiting class, committed to North Carolina on Friday. See what the Tar Heels will be getting in Francis, a high school teammate of UNC freshman forward Sterling Manley at Pickerington Central Central High (Pickerington, Ohio). Read More...

2019 PG Jeremiah Francis Commits to UNC

It only took nine days after being offered by Roy Williams for Pickerington Central's Jeremiah Francis to commit to North Carolina. Francis confirmed the commitment to 270 Hoops prior to Friday's announcement. "I mean, it's just North Carolina," Francis told 270 Hoops of the thinking behind his decision. "It's a powerful basketball program and really just a great place to be." (270 Hoops)

Simi Shittu Offers Interesting Thoughts on UNC

Simi Shittu, the 6-foot-8 power forward from Vermont Academy, says that Kentucky, Arizona, UNC, Vanderbilt, Notre Dame, Arizona State, and Ohio State are the schools recruiting him the hardest. On UNC: “They just won the national championship. They’re more of a developmental school. They have a lot of three-and done players. They also have a nice campus. It’s a learning environment.” (D1Vision)

Nassir Little Includes UNC in Top 5

Nassir Little, the 6-foot-7 small forward from Orlando Christian (FL) Prep, named North Carolina, Miami, Arizona, Duke, and Georgia Tech as his final five schools on Wednesday. Little’s final five comes just one day after receiving an offer from Duke on Tuesday. UNC offered Little on July 31. He has an official visit to Georgia Tech planned for Aug. 26. (Zag's Blog)

Nassir Little Schedules UNC Visit

On Wednesday evening, Nassir Little announced a top five that includes Arizona, Duke, Georgia Tech, Miami and North Carolina. And he took the next step with the Tar Heels, scheduling an official visit to Chapel Hill beginning on Sept. 8. The basketball team will hold a special championship ring ceremony that day in Kenan Stadium, featuring past Tar Heel national champions. (Inside Carolina)

UNC Among 4 Working Hardest For Nassir Little

6'6" Nassir Little is the epitome of the student-athlete: a high-motor, freak athlete that brings a cerebral approach to the game, while earning well over a 4.0 GPA. "Arizona, North Carolina, Oregon, Kansas...those are the four new schools that are recruiting me the hardest right now. The guys from North Carolina, growing up I always watched them. They've got great players" (247 Sports)

Where UNC Stands with Simi Shittu

North Carolina came in with an offer for five-star forward Simi Shittu last week. He had talked in the past about liking the Tar Heels, so an offer definitely had to have caught his eye. North Carolina doesn’t have much of a pressing need in the frontcourt as it's hard to see any of its upperclassmen leaving early for the NBA at this point. Oregon remains the squad to beat.

Matthew Hurt, the 6’8 Rochester, Minnesota junior, holds offers from schools like North Carolina, Duke, Kansas, Louisville, Notre Dame, Indiana, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Virginia, Oregon, UCLA, and Ohio State. Check out these highlights from the heavily-recruited 5-star forward at the 2017 Chicago Classic/adidas Regional Qualifier near Chicago, IL. (Ball Is Life)

Ashton Hagans, Armando Bacot Highlight Saturday's Adidas Nations

It should come as no surprise that North Carolina extended an offer to Armando Bacot this week. For most Tar Heel fans, they will immediately think of Kennedy Meeks when they see Bacot. North Carolina is also the most recent offer for 5-star point guard Ashton Hagans. The Tar Heels will be a heavy favorite for Hagans, though Auburn remains the program to beat. (Rivals.com)
