Luke Maye to make college choice in November

Hough High senior basketball player Luke Maye plans to choose a college and sign in November, his father told the Observer. Mark Maye said his son, a 6-foot-8 power forward, will choose among Clemson, Davidson and North Carolina. Luke Maye, a three-time All-Charlotte Observer performer, is ranked No. 2 in North Carolina behind Kinston’s Brandon Ingram by the N.C. Prep Phenom Report, which closely follows statewide basketball recruiting. (Charlotte Observer)

Roy Williams Visits No. 1 Jaylen Brown

UNC Basketball hosted Media Day on Wednesday, the annual event at the Smith Center filled with interviews, photo shoots and the Roy Williams preseason press conference. But prior to the event, UNC's head coach made an early morning flight to visit the nation's top-ranked prospect. Jaylen Brown confirmed to Inside Carolina that Williams was at Marietta (Ga.) Wheeler's team workouts before school on Wednesday. (Inside Carolina)

Rabb had been waiting to meet with Williams before announcing the five schools that will get his official visits. (Lexington Herald-Leader)

USA Basketball Mini-Camp Day Two Standouts: Felton, Zimmerman, Brown

Jalek Felton, PG: This is a kid with nothing but upside and on Sunday he showed several of the reasons he's such a good prospect. Felton is 6-foot-3, long, athletic and can really pass the ball. Not just a passer, Felton is also a really good athlete that can create his own shot and knock down jumpers. The best part is, he's just a baby physically and when he puts on some strength, he'll take his game to the next level. (Scout.com)

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)
