Zion Williamson poised for busy stretch

Two summers from now, for the 2019 NBA Draft, Zion Williamson of Spartanburg Day might hear his named called...and possibly called first. But that’s down the road. Right now the 6-foot-6 phenom is focused on returning to his AAU schedule this weekend in Los Angeles fully healed from a deep knee bruise that forced him to shut things down for several weeks.

One On One With Five Star 2018 SG Romeo Langford

Which coaches have you noticed staying to watch you (at the USA U-19 Trials)? Romeo Langford: "I think pretty much Louisville, North Carolina and Kansas. I saw Roy Williams from North Carolina here and Archie Miller from Indiana too." What were your thoughts on having those coaches there for you? RL: "It meant a lot to me, it showed they were really serious in showing how much they wanted me." (247 Sports)

Romeo Langford makes Team USA, will play in Egypt

Romeo Langford came to USA Basketball training camp this week with two top priorities. The New Albany High five-star guard said he wanted to test his ability against players already in college and to make the U19 World Championship team and travel to Egypt. He did well enough against the older guys to make the cut. Langford was one of 12 players selected on Thursday (Louisville Courier-Journal)

Coby White jumps in latest ESPN college basketball recruiting rankings

On Monday, ESPN took its top 60 player rankings for the 2018 class and expanded it to 100. For the North Carolina Tar Heels, they have two players signed in their 2018 class. Both Rechon Black and Coby White signed with the Tar Heels in 2016. The two guards give UNC a nice start to their 2018 class, with both ranked in the top 100 according to ESPN. (Keeping It Heel)

A look at Romeo Langford's shooting, Zion Williamson's recruitment

UNC, Kentucky, Kansas and Duke remain heavily in the mix for Zion Williamson, though South Carolina may be the final school to round out his premature top-five. Romeo Langford, a top-five recruitin the 2018 class, sure can put the ball through the basket. Langford goes down as one of the better scorers that I have had the chance to scout and evaluate in recent years. (Rivals.com)

Video: Coby White NBPA Top100 Highlights

North Carolina Tar Heels commit Coby White was getting buckets all week at the NBPA Top 100 Camp in Charlottesville, VA. The 6'2 combo guard will be a lot of fun to watch in Chapel Hill in 2018. View Video...

Cox Mill High’s Wendell Moore wins gold medal with USA Basketball

When his classmates ask what he did for summer vacation, Cox Mill High rising junior Wendell Moore will have quite the story to tell.

It was the fifth straight USA win in the event as the Americans beat Canada 111-60. (Charlotte Observer)

NBPA Top 100: Three major takeaways

Possibly the most polished recruit in the 2019 class, Matthew Hurt has begun to work himself into a good sized small forward as he defended better on the perimeter, rebounded at a high rate and created for others. He solidified his status as a five-star recruit Cole Anthony and Ashton Hagans created a great debate as to who the best point guard is in the 2019 class. (Rivals.com)

Walker Miller Finalizing Walk-On Spot with UNC Basketball

Almost everything Walker Miller was looking for, he knew he could find at Dartmouth College. Dartmouth's academics are among the country's best, and its basketball isn't too bad either. But there was something tugging at Miller that Dartmouth couldn't provide. An opportunity to attend - and play - at the same school his older brother, current UNC-Greensboro head coach Wes Miller, played at a decade earlier. (Inside Carolina)

Recruiting Notebook: Matthew Hurt, Josh Nickelberry, Cole Anthony

Matthew Hurt, the 6-foot-8 power forward from John Marshall (MN) Senior High, says Minnesota called him at midnight Thursday and has received voicemails from Duke, Kansas, Indiana and Notre Dame. Hurt also received calls from assistant coaches including UNC assistant Hubert Davis. Cole Anthony, the 6-foot-2 point guard from Archbishop Molloy, has heard from UNC. (Zag's Blog)

Armando Bacot Among NBPA Day Two Top Performers

Armando Bacot made his move into five-star range in Scout's updated rankings and he certainly proved he belonged there. Bacot, a 6-foot-10 post player, went 11-for-19 from the field, scoring 24 points and grabbing 23 rebounds during his two games on Thursday. At his size, Bacot has value in the post and does a good job scoring from close. Bacot is one of the fastest rising juniors in the country. (Scout.com)

2019 PF Nobal Days hears from UNC

Thursday marked the first day in which schools could call junior recruits. The phone was busy for Racine (Wis.) Park 2019 F/C Nobal Days. The four-star forward said he heard from Wisconsin, Missouri, Northwestern, Illinois, Kansas State, UNLV, Stanford, Nebraska, Notre Dame, North Carolina, Vanderbilt, Iowa, Western Kentucky, Santa Clara, and Tulane. (247 Sports)

Coby White Shows Alpha Scorer Mentality at NBPA Camp

If you're looking for an alpha scorer in the 2018 class, 6'4" UNC guard commit Coby White is showing that he's the guy. He finished the day with an average of 20 points per game. He showed that he's virtually unstoppable off-the-dribble and is easily one of the most impressive finishers in the country. If he can get his perimeter shot going this week, he's going to put up even bigger numbers. (Future 150)
