UNC Basketball Recruiting

Complete coverage of North Carolina Basketball Recruiting.

2018 6’7 PG Rechon Black may be the best talent in high school

UNC’s 2018 PG Commit Rechon “Leaky” Black may be the most intriguing prospect in all of high school basketball. He’s a legit 6’7? with limbs that suggest he will grow another 2-3 inches. He plays pace and uses his long arms to be disruptive on the defensive end. Black has made steady improvements and few guards make better reads off of the pick & roll. (The Hoops Column)

Class of 17: No. 8 Westtown School (N.Y.) forward Mohamed Bamba

To hear Mohamed Bamba tell it, his emergence wasn’t something you could see coming from day one; hard to believe for a player being pursued by the likes of Kansas, Kentucky, Duke, UNC, Indiana, Texas, Louisville and Villanova. “I definitely wasn’t the best guy on the court from the time I started playing; I might’ve been the tallest, but I definitely wasn’t the best.” (USA Today)

P.J. Washington, John Petty package deal 'very possible'

Five-star prospects P.J. Washington (UNC offer) and John Petty of Team Penny are two of the top basketball recruits in the 2017 class. Is it possible they remain teammates at the college level? In a video interview with Krossover TV, Washington says it's 'very possible.' "I feel like I could play with John in college. I feel like it's very possible. It might happen." (247 Sports)

Cox Mill’s Wendell Moore Jr. is the state’s top basketball recruit in the class of 2019

Cox Mill High’s Wendell Moore is the No. 1 recruit in North Carolina among rising sophomores, according to the Phenom Hoop Report, a regional recruiting service. In February, he picked up an offer from North Carolina, a rare freshman to get an offer from Tar Heels coach Roy Williams. Moore also has offers from Charlotte, Georgia, N.C. State, Tennessee and Wake Forest. (Charlotte Observer)

Romeo Langford Lists UNC in Top 10

The No. 2 player in the class of 2018 is starting to narrow his sights. New Albany (Indiana) guard Romeo Langford announced a top 10 Tuesday. The 247Sports Composite five-star guard named Duke, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville, North Carolina, N.C. State, Purdue, Vanderbilt and UCLA as the schools standing out for him at the moment.

Roy Williams offers 2017 5-star SF Jarred Vanderbilt

North Carolina continues to offer 2017 recruits as the Tar Heels attempt to lock down a few more commitments for the 2017 class. The move now is for 2017 small forward Jarred Vanderbilt (Bellaire, TX/Victory Prep), a 6-8 five-star prospect from Texas. UNC offered Vanderbilt last week, InsideCarolina.com reported on Tuesday. (Carolina Blue)

Jericho Sims gets Kansas offer; North Carolina next?

If the Minnesota Gophers want senior Jericho Sims, they will now have to beat out at least one national championship contender. The Kansas Jayhawks started following Sims last year, but they saw enough during the open July evaluation period to make him a priority. North Carolina is showing increased interest. And the word is an offer from the Tar Heels could be coming soon. (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

Kris Wilkes Cuts List to Five, Eliminates UNC

Now the real battle begins for highly-sought basketball prospect Kris Wilkes. The North Central (Indianapolis) standout, ranked No. 15 on the 247sports national composite, cut his list to five schools on Sunday. Wilkes said he’d consider Indiana, Illinois, UCLA, UConn and Xavier moving forward. “I think it came down to having strong relationships with those schools,” Wilkes said. (Indianapolis Star)

Analysis: UNC recruit PF Isaiah Stokes

2017 power forward Isaiah Stokes emerged as a UNC target a few weeks after the July evaluation period. The 6-8, 285-pound recruit from Tennessee earned an offer from UNC on Aug. 2, becoming one of a few big men the TAr Heels are targeting for this cycle. A former elite offensive tackle (holds multiple SEC offers) who decided to focus solely on basketball, Stokes is a unique recruit. (Carolina Blue)

UNC Basketball Recruits Named to 2016 Under Armour Elite 24 Roster

The rosters for the Elite 24 all-star game in Brooklyn have been announced, and there are some pretty big names on the list. UNC recruits on the list include Jalek Felton (UNC commit), Zion Williamson (offered), Devon Dotson (offered), and Kevin Knox (offered). The game will be played on August 20 in New York City at Brooklyn Bridge Park's Pier 2. (Zag's Blog)

Video: North Carolina commit Jalek Felton can do it all

Jalek Felton, nephew of NBA star Raymond Felton, has already decided to follow in his uncle’s footsteps with his college decision. He will attend UNC and appears perfectly capable of having a similar impact on the program. As this video from CourtsideFilms.com shows, Felton is an able scorer, great leaper, and an electric player with the ball in his hands. (USA Today)

Analysis: UNC five-star SF target Kris Wilkes

UNC has moved quickly with 2017 small forward Kris Wilkes, offering on July 27 shortly after it was known that the elite recruit was narrowing down his list. A 6-7, 190-pound five-star recruit from Indiana, Wilkes is set to release a top five this weekend. Wilkes has scheduled an official visit to UNC for Aug. 26-28. Based on that, it seems likely the Tar Heels will again make the cut. (Carolina Blue)
