Will lack of McDonald’s AA love motivate Felton, fellow UNC signees?

For only the third time in a decade, North Carolina doesn’t have a McDonald’s All-American among its basketball signees. The UNC signee with the biggest beef is Jalek Felton, the No. 1 combo guard nationally. Should the Tar Heels land forward Kevin Knox, the McDonald’s shutout will take care of itself. But the collective snub serves as a motivator for UNC’s other incoming freshmen. (ACC Sports Journal)

Kevin Knox: It’s coming close to decision time for me. Right now I’m looking at the smaller things because all four schools offer great things. I’m looking at things like playing style, player comparison, and where they’d put me in the system. I’ve already taken two officials to Duke and Florida State. I take an official to Kentucky Jan. 28-30 and North Carolina is Feb. 4-6. (USA Today)
