Predictions for the top remaining 2018 basketball recruits

E.J. Montgomery was at North Carolina on Monday night and spent his his Valentine's Day at Duke. Later this month he'll see Kentucky. All those visits are unofficial. The others getting some buzz include Vanderbilt and Georgetown, and it won't be a surprise if Montgomery takes some time. Prediction: Duke. Former UNC recruit Romeo Langford's list remains at 3.

Roy Williams to visit Armando Bacot Wednesday

According to Rivals reporter Corey Evans, Williams is visiting five-star forward Armando Bacot in Virginia.

UNC Basketball Recruiting Update: E.J. Montgomery, Wendell Moore

In addition to visits to North Carolina (where he was Monday while the Tar Heels hosted Notre Dame) and Duke (this Wednesday), E.J. Montgomery is expected to take an unofficial visit to Kentucky later this month. It’s my opinion that the Tar Heels, Blue Devils and Wildcats are in a tier above everybody else. I think UNC remains the team to beat for Wendell Moore. (Rivals.com)

Nassir Little projected as a lottery pick in 2019 NBA Draft

North Carolina 5-star small forward signee Nassir Little, currently 10th in ESPN’s top 100, has the potential to be a superstar in college. On Monday, ESPN released their early 2019 mock draft and Little made an appearance high on the list as the number four overall pick in the draft. That would be the earliest selection of a Tar Heel since Marvin Williams in 2005. (Keeping It Heel)

Coby White: Thanks, but no thanks to BBB offer to play in pro league

The collective heart of UNC fans may have skipped a beat Thursday when word got out that a representative of Big Baller Brand was in Goldsboro to offer UNC five-star recruit and Greenfield School senior Coby White a chance to play professionally instead of going to college. “We kind of told him that we were not interested,” said Bonita White, Coby’s mother. (Wilson Times)

Roy Williams watches Rechon Black, Wendell Moore

Roy Williams has become a familiar face at Cox Mill High during his recruitment of UNC signee Rechon Black. And Friday was senior night, which made it all the more important for Williams to be there. Of course, Cox Mill is also the home to 5-star Class of 2019 small forward Wendell Moore, who happens to be one of the Tar Heels’ top targets in the junior class. (DieHards.com)

E.J. Montgomery visiting UNC Monday, also sets Kentucky visit

Five-star recruit E.J. Montgomery scheduled an unofficial visit to Kentucky for February 24th, his father E.J. Montgomery Sr. tells 247Sports.

Wheeler, will start a previously scheduled trip to North Carolina on Monday. (247 Sports)

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. Montgomery said. “I always wanted to be in it, but I really wanted to be in it after last year.” He got the news last month that he’d accomplished that goal and on Thursday the McDonald’s Hometown Heroes stopped by his school and presented him with an honorary jersey for the game, which tips March 28 in Atlanta.

Rechon Black, Wendell Moore Selected for All-Star Events

Concord Cox Mill star Wendell Moore is among 24 players from the class of 2019 invited by USA Basketball to compete in a series of events at this year’s college basketball Final Four in San Antonio. The 2018 Carolinas Classic All-Star basketball games are March 24 at Wilmington’s Hoggard High School and will feature Cox Mill star and UNC signee Rechon Black. (Charlotte Observer)

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)

UNC Basketball Recruiting Notes: Bacot, Little, Carey

Roy Williams took a trip to Fort Lauderdale, Fla. this week to see 5-star power forward Vernon Carey Jr. Carey is the No. 2 player in the Class of 2019 and will take his first official visit to Michigan State this weekend.
