With NCAA investigation behind them, UNC now in the mix for several one-and-done candidates

With the academic scandal behind them, North Carolina seems poised for a recruiting roll and remains in the mix for several elite recruits. One source close to the program said it “definitely helps to have it behind us. People used it against us for years.” Zion Williamson, the No. 2 player in 2018 and the projected No. 2 pick in 2018, announced he will visit UNC this weekend. (Zag's Blog)

Looking at scholarship math for UNC's basketball Class of 2018

Roy Williams is still pursuing 5-star power forward Simi Shittu, who will begin an official visit on Nov. 10, and North Carolina is apparently still in the running on 5-star small forward Zion Williamson, who somewhat surprisingly will be taking an official visit to Chapel Hill this weekend. So it looks like Williams would be comfortable bringing in a four-man class on the heels of a five-man class in 2017. (DieHards.com)

Zion Williamson Blog: Kentucky, Duke officials, upcoming UNC visit

Zion Williamson: The guys I talked to (at Kentucky) said it really feels like home. This past weekend I went to Duke and had a great time at Countdown to Craziness. The Cameron Crazies showed me a lot of love. I’m headed to North Carolina this weekend so I’m looking forward to that. I don’t have any plans for any other visits right now. My heart has to tell me which school I am supposed to be at. (USA Today)

Basketball Recruiting Roundup: Wendell Moore, Quentin Grimes, Florida, Miami

The Tar Heels have already notched the verbal commitment of four-star 2019 guard Jeremiah Francis and there has been a growing sentiment that they could do just the same with Wendell Moore. Duke just offered Moore two weeks ago and the Blue Devils would love to lock down the top-50 junior. Wake Forest, located less than a two-hour drive from his home, has made Moore a priority.

NCAA decision clears way for UNC recruiting

With the 2017-18 North Carolina men’s basketball season set to tip off a little over two weeks from now, all focus is on the Tar Heel’s title defense. Behind the scenes, though, the North Carolina coaching staff is working hard to ensure the program’s continued success for years to come. On Oct. 13, that success became more feasible. (Daily Tar Heel)

Zion Williamson to Officially Visit UNC

For the second-consecutive year, 2018 forward Zion Williamson will be on campus for North Carolina's lone exhibition game. This year is a little different, however. Williamson, a 6-6, 272-pound forward from Spartanburg (S.C.) Day School, will be on an official visit to UNC, his family confirmed to Inside Carolina. Williamson called his last trip to Carolina "amazing." (Inside Carolina)

The new recruiting edge for UNC Basketball

Nassir Little may not be alone in turning to UNC. The Tar Heels are actively recruiting other 5-star 2018 prospects including Romeo Langford and Simi Shittu. Langford took an official visit to UNC earlier in October. Shittu visits Chapel Hill in November. The addition of either Langford or Shittu along with Little, Coby White, and Rechon Black will put UNC in the running for America’s top class. (ACC Sports Journal)

5-star forward Matthew Hurt visiting UNC, Duke

The storied rivalry between Duke and North Carolina is known for many things, one of those being the schools’ close proximity to each other. Class of 2019 prospect Matthew Hurt will take full advantage of that proximity this weekend when he visits both campuses in a 24-hour time span. After attending Countdown to Craziness on Friday, Hurt will make the short drive to Chapel Hill. (Keeping It Heel)
