Roy Williams on the Recruiting Trail: Giles, Brown, Ingram

North Carolina coach Roy Williams on Saturday watched Marietta (GA) Wheeler forward Jaylen Brown go for 19 points and 9 rebounds in a 55-52 win over Paul VI at the City Of Palms, according to multiple reports. Williams also watched Harry Giles at the event and is expected to watch 2015 forward Brandon Ingram on Monday at the Chick-fil-A Classic in Columbia, S.C. Brown told Evan Daniels of Scout.com that Williams, Georgia Tech coach Brian Gregory and Georgia coach Mark Fox are the only head coaches to have watched him this year. (Zag's Blog)

Jaylen Brown Enjoys UCLA, Will Take Officials to Michigan, North Carolina

Jaylen Brown has now visited Kansas, Kentucky and UCLA and plans to take his remaining two official visits to Michigan and North Carolina and unofficials to Georgia and Georgia Tech. “I haven’t gotten anything planned but I’m probably going to take an official to Michigan and to North Carolina,” Brown said. “Unofficially, to Georgia and Georgia Tech. I grew up a UNC fan,” Brown said. “North Carolina was always the school that I liked the most." (Zag's Blog)

Video: Brandon Ingram does it all

6’9? Brandon Ingram has crazy potential. He is currently deciding between Duke, Kansas, NC State, Kentucky, UNC, and UCLA. Ingram started drawing Kevin Durant comparisons at national camps this summer and in the early part of the 2014 season he is showing us why. This mix is comprised of footage shot from three games played with in a week of each other. (Ball Is Life)

Athlete of the Week: Bartow junior Tony Bradley

It was Roy Williams last week. This week it was Billy Donovan. A who’s who of college basketball coaches are making their way to Polk County to check out one of the nation’s top junior prospects in person. And Bartow power forward Tony Bradley is making the trip well worth it. Bradley put up 36 points and nabbed 13 rebounds against Auburndale last week in front of Williams. That performance netted him an offer from North Carolina. (Bay News 9)

Kinston features top player in Brandon Ingram

The birthplace of legendary NBA players Jerry Stackhouse and Cedric Maxwell, Kinston has also spawned current L.A. Clipper and former UNC star Reggie Bullock. This year’s Kinston roster only has three seniors – nationally-recruited Brandon Ingram along with regional targets Darnell Dunn and Mykel Hart – but that trio have a combined eight state championship rings. Ingram is a silky smooth 6-foot-9 guard/forward hybrid with shooting range to 26 feet; he has narrowed his list of colleges to Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, N.C. State, UCLA and UNC. (High School OT)

Harry Giles watches Heels

Class of 2016 elite power forward Harry Giles spent Tuesday night in the Greensboro Coliseum watching North Carolina beat UNCG 79-56. GIles, a 247Sports Composite five-star prospect, plays for Wesleyan Christian Academy in nearby High Point, N.C. The 6-foot-10, 210-pound prospect has offers from Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, and UNC, among others. (Carolina Blue)

Seventh Woods ready to take next step?

What we’ll be watching this season is whether Seventh Woods has settled into his ultimate position. While he’s a defensive point guard — and a potentially dominant one at that — earlier this year he struggled to run the show naturally for his various travel and camp teams. His jump shot also will be an area to monitor. Woods at times has caught fire, such as at last year’s HSOT Invitational, and including over the weekend in his 37-point outing. (Scout.com)

Edrice Adebayo with stellar performance in front of Roy Williams

2016 five-star prospect Edrice Adebayo put up 40 points and 19 rebounds in front of North Carolina head coach Roy Williams. Footage is now on his 247Sports profile courtesy of ballislife.com. Along with North Carolina, Kansas and North Carolina State are considered strong in Adebayo's recruitment. (247 Sports)

Q&A with Antonio Blakeney

What’s North Carolina’s interest been like? Antonio Blakeney: “They are very interested. They are basically saying they really lack shooting. I could come in and play right away and be the shooter that they need. They’ve been trying to get me on campus January 10th and N.C. State has been trying to get me on campus January 10th. If I do it, it’ll be one of those and that’ll be it. I really just need to talk to my mom and coach Reese and figure out what I’m doing.” (Scout.com)

Sacha Killeya-Jones adds to his game

Sacha Killeya-Jones, a junior at Lynchburg (Va.) Virginia Episcopal School, spent the fall in the weight room working on his strength and conditioning. That was evident on the court this past week. Killeya-Jones cited interest from a host of schools including Virginia, North Carolina, Wake Forest, Virginia Tech, Georgetown, Duke and George Washington. Killeya-Jones also took a pair of recent unofficial visits to Duke. Killeya-Jones is regarded as the No. 9 power forward and the No. 62 center in the 2016 recruiting class. (Scout.com)

Seventh Woods shines playing through tragedy

Hammond junior Seventh Woods got off to a slow start in his team’s 94-68 victory over Spring Valley on Saturday night. He missed his first three shots but it wasn’t because of the adrenaline he felt going against South Carolina signee P.J. Dozier in front of a capacity crowd. Woods was carrying a heavy heart. Less than 24 hours before the ball was tossed and the two powerhouses in the state tipped off, Woods lost his grandparents in a house fire. (The Big Spur)

Roy Williams offers Tony Bradley

Roy Williams traveled to Florida on Monday to watch Bartow (Fla.) High standout Tony Bradley. On Wednesday evening the UNC head coach extended a scholarship offer to the 6-foot-10 junior center. “Coach Williams called me 30 minutes ago and he surprised me when he said he was going to offer me a scholarship to the University of North Carolina,” Bradley added. UNC joins a long list of schools that have offered Bradley, who claims offers from more than 30 colleges. (Inside Carolina)

Roy Williams watches Jayson Tatum in St. Louis

Roy Williams followed the recruiting trail to St. Louis, Missouri to watch Jayson Tatum Tuesday night. Tatum, a 6-foot-8, 190-pound wing player, is the No. 1 player in the 2016 class per the 247Sports Composite rankings. His Chaminade College Prep School team faced off against Christian Brothers Academy, who is coached by Jayson's father, Justin. Tatum finished with 25 points, 11 rebounds, 4 steals, 5 assists, and 1 block in an 81-59 win. (Carolina Blue)

Harry Giles III talks Coach K, Coach Cal, Coach Williams, rankings

Harry Giles: "Almost the whole Duke staff was at my game last week; Coach K, Coach Capel, Coach Scheyer and Coach James, and then Coach Williams and Coach Davis from UNC were at the same game so that was fun to have them there. We didn’t play our best so that was the bad part. You always want to put on a show when the big time coaches come to see you so I was a little disappointed that we didn’t play a great game."
