Rawle Alkins Blog: Staying positive through tough season, recruiting and more

Rawle Alkins: "Unfortunately I didn’t make the McDonald’s All American Game, and, honestly, I don’t know why, but I don’t dwell on things like that. Congrats to the guys that made it, but just know when I play against any of them I’m coming! The recruitment is going great. Right now I’m still wide open. I have no favorites, but that should change when I start taking visits. I plan to have a top five before I decide." (USA Today)

Rechon Black: Long pass-first point guard, who can score

After landing four-star recruit Rechon Black, UNC should be set at point guard for the foreseeable future. The Tar Heels picked up a commitment from the class of 2018 in-state guard on Friday night. CarolinaBlue spoke with Concord High School head coach Jason Stowe to get the low down on Black as a person, player, what he will bring to the Tar Heels, and how UNC recruited him. (Carolina Blue)

Scout's Take: New UNC commit Rechon Black

Rechon Black is a high-level, developing prospect with a ton of upside. At 6-6 and only a sophomore, he is skilled enough to play some point guard and is working to transition into that position." Currently, Black plays a lot of combo guard. His size makes it a no-brainer to take the ball down low on offense and he often defends the opposition's biggest players. (Carolina Blue)
