Big Baller Brand Tries–and Fails–to Convince UNC Signee Coby White to Join Proposed New League

LaVar Ball has spoken plenty of things into existence since bursting into the public spotlight last year, but he and his company–the Big Baller Brand–were unable to convince incoming North Carolina combo guard Coby White to join their proposed new basketball league, which is looking to provide 80 top high-schoolers with a paid alternative to the NCAA.

E.J. Montgomery fulfills goal after receiving McDonald's jersey

“I said I’ve gotta get in that (McDonald's All-American) game,” E.J.

Analyst: How E.J. Montgomery would fit in at UNC

E.J. Montgomery would be a welcomed addition in Chapel Hill. Garrison Brooks, Sterling Manley and Brandon Huffman have given North Carolina good minutes, but I think Montgomery, the No. 12 recruit in the 247Sports Composite, is a superior player and would give them a more versatile look in the post. He has unofficial visits set for UNC and Duke next week. (247 Sports)

E.J. Montgomery breaks down recruitment

Ranked No. 11 in the senior class, 5-star power forward E.J. Montgomery is working with a final-11 list that includes North Carolina, Duke, and Kentucky, among others.

UNC in Good Position with E.J. Montgomery

Last week, Roy Williams visited 5-star power forward E.J. Montgomery twice, the latter coming with an offer to the Wheeler High standout. Williams is not going to leave his Chapel Hill abode during the meat of the ACC season if he doesn’t feel like Montgomery is someone he has a legitimate shot at. UNC remains in a much better spot than any others outside Duke. (Rivals.com)
