Roy Williams gives Jackson Simmons a scholarship

Smoky Mountain senior has been given a scholarship to play college basketball for North Carolina. Tar Heels coach and Western North Carolina native informed Simmons of the scholarship Thursday night. The Citizen-Times All-WNC Player of the Year initially accepted a preferred walk-on spot with the defending ACC regular-season champions in August. “Jackson is excited. But at the same time, when he committed to (the Tar Heels) in August, he did it unconditionally,” Simmons’ father, Si, said today. (Asheville Citizen-Times)
