Jaylen Brown, 2015's No. 1 player, adds UNC to list

Jaylen Brown, the No. 1 player in the Class of 2015, said he’s added North Carolina to his list and discussed several schools he’s considering. Brown, a 6-foot-6 small forward, on UNC: ”North Carolina came in a little bit late, but North Carolina is a great university and you can’t just knock them off the list. You have to at least see what they have to say and maybe I’ll do a visit or something with them. Coach Roy is a great coach. It’s a great university." (Zag's Blog)

Stephen Zimmerman Stands Out At USA Basketball Mini-Camp

A very good athlete as an underclassman, Stephen Zimmerman's athleticism didn't look quite the same as a junior but on Saturday it was back in a big way. He got out in transition and had some explosive finishes above the rim, including multiple windmills. Zimmerman's jump shot also looked very good, as he was burying jumpers all day. It was a statement day for the five-star prospect. (Scout.com)

Video: Harry Giles Summer Mixtape

6’9 freshman Harry Giles “might be the best freshman in the country” and even though the power forward from Wesleyan Christian Academy was still recovering from a torn ACL, MCL and Meniscus, he showed all summer long that he is one of the top prospects in high school. View Video...

Seventh Woods to attend Late Night With Roy

As "Late Night with Roy" opens the 2014-15 Tar Heel basketball season on Friday, an elite collection of recruits will be courtside at the Smith Center. While his unmatched athleticism made him a Youtube sensation, Seventh Woods isn't one to seek the spotlight. Thus his recruitment has traveled well below the radar. The 6-2 guard from Columbia (S.C.) Hammond attended a UNC game each of the last three seasons and Roy Williams has been a regular visitor at his high school. (Inside Carolina)

Harry Giles adds name to Late Night recruit list

As "Late Night with Roy" opens the 2014-15 Tar Heel basketball season on Friday, an elite collection of recruits will be courtside at the Smith Center. Harry Giles, a 6-9 face-up forward at High Point (N.C.) Wesleyan Christian Academy, will be making his sixth trip to the Smith Center in the last 20 months, having attended two games each of the last two seasons as well as Late Night 2013. Tar Heel freshman Theo Pinson is his friend and former teammate at Wesleyan. (Inside Carolina)

Updated Recruit List for Late Night

"Late Night with Roy" is this Friday, and Inside Carolina sources have provided an updated list of five hoops recruits who plan to attend the season-opening Oct. 3 event at the Smith Center: Brandon Ingram, P.J. Dozier, Luke Maye, Dennis Smith, and Sacha Killeya-Jones. This will be an unofficial visit for Kinston (N.C.) senior Brandon Ingram, who took his UNC official visit back in January. (Inside Carolina)

P.J. Dozier: Evaluation

It always was going to be difficult for Perry Dozier to avoid basketball. Not that he wanted to, mind you, but his father and uncle's prominence within the game — both played at South Carolina — ensured that the Palmetto State product would receive every opportunity to carve out his own place in the sport. Dozier has narrowed his list of schools to five as the fall signing period approaches: North Carolina, Michigan, Georgetown, Louisville and South Carolina. (Scout.com)

Profile and Perspective: UNC hosts Late Night vistors

North Carolina is holding its annual basketball kickoff celebration this Friday night, October 3rd in the Dean Dome. In addition to the event starting the 2014-2015 season, it also serves as a great recruiting tool for the basketball program. The Tar Heels have yet to lock down a commitment from the the 2015 class but a number of players visiting Friday could be names you could see in Carolina Blue soon. Here is CarolinaBlue's profile on the recruitment of each Late Night With Roy visitor: (Carolina Blue)

The 6-foot-10 Labissiere took an official visit to UNC over the September 5th-7th weekend. Williams visited Labissiere on September 9th. (Carolina Blue)

Harry Giles III talks winning gold, Super 25 preseason ranking prediction and more

Harry Giles is widely regarded as one of the country’s top players, regardless of class, with college basketball heavyweights like North Carolina, Kentucky and Duke, among many others, all giving chase. "I feel like I’m almost back to 100 percent. I think definitely by the start of the season that I’ll be 100 percent so I’m excited about that too! We have open gym after school every day and I’ve had a lot of coaches come in to see me like South Carolina, Wake Forest, Duke, N.C. State, UNC and Baylor. Louisville called me last week and said they’d be out too." (USA Today)
