State and Malik," said Nick Weatherspoon (UNC offer), a 6-foot-2 four-star guard out of Velma Jackson (MS). "It would be nice. We could play together because we are from the same state."

Five-star PF P.J. Washington visits UNC

Class of 2017 5-star power forward P.J. Washington (Dallas, TX/Findlay Prep) and his father took an unofficial visit to UNC on Thursday.

At 6-7, 225-pounds, he is an undersized power forward but plays with great physicality. (Carolina Blue)

Wendell Carter Named EYBL Atlanta MVP

2017 5-star power forward and UNC offeree Wendell Carter's talent is undeniable. He's versatile, coachable and wants to be great. All of the intangibles are there, but it's his off-court demeanor that caught the attention of his teammates. An A-student with aspirations of becoming a full-fledged actor, there is more to Carter than what you see on the court. (D1 Circuit)

Top prospects from UAA session III: Felton, Duval, Reid

Jalek Felton has sometimes been a bit casual with his effort. This spring his motor has been ramped up and he’s showed lots of ability as an off the dribble scorer. He’s got things headed in the right direction. Nazreon Reid is big and strong enough to play the center position but is also mobile and has skill facing the hoop and running the floor. (Rivals.com)

UNC Basketball commit Jalek Felton puts on show in L.A.

He still might be another year or so away from arriving on campus, but 2017 point guard Jalek Felton already has UNC fans happy. Felton averaged 19 pointer per game for Team Felton at the UA Association event in Los Angeles over the weekend. Despite going 7-5, Team Felton needed just three wins to qualify for the Under Armour finals in Georgia. (Keeping It Heel)

EYBL Atlanta Roundup: Mitchell Robinson, Kevin Knox

Center Mitchell Robinson has clearly taken his game to the next level. If there was any doubt about him getting an elevation to five-star status in the next update, it's gone. LSU and UNC got involved after his April decommitment from Texas A&M, and Kentucky is starting to nose around his recruitment. Five-star small forward Kevin Knox also had an impressive showing.
