Five-star junior Kevin Knox recaps UNC/Duke visit

By taking second visits in a month to both Duke and North Carolina over the weekend, five-star junior Kevin Knox has created a buzz. “(UNC) is a really good school. Their coaches love me. I talked to a lot of coaches and they took me around to the dorms and showed me campus. Their coaches are a little older than the Duke assistants so they had a different way to recruit me which was good.” (Rivals.com)

Shea Rush will play for Roy Williams, like his father wasn’t able to do

Shea Rush is 18 years old, friendly, smart enough for the Ivy League and a talented enough basketball player that he will be a preferred walk-on at North Carolina next season. But, at the moment, he is stumped. North Carolina is his dream school, partly for its business school, but also because of its basketball coach. Roy Williams recruited Rush’s father in the 1990s.

Kevin Knox Blog: UNC and Duke Visits

2017 wing Kevin Knox: "I just took unofficial visits to Duke and North Carolina and both of those visits were crazy! First, I went to Duke and watched their practice the day before the game and it was really intense. I went to North Carolina after that and I was really impressed with them too. I loved the way they practiced; they really got after it. All of their facilities are great and the cool thing was I got to spend a lot of time with Coach Roy." (USA Today)
