Making the Case for Five-Star PF Vernon Carey

The top-ranked basketball recruit in the 2019 class, , will announce his college decision Thursday. The five-star prospect is down to Duke, Michigan State and North Carolina, but which finalist needs him the most? The Tar Heels are not thought to be a major contender for Carey's commitment but they are in his final three so there is always a chance he could pick UNC. (

UNC Makes Up Ground With Vernon Carey, Still a Long Shot

The thought of choosing North Carolina on Thursday is difficult to envision and while I still see him going to Duke or Michigan State, UNC has definitely caught his eye. No one has made up more ground over the past month than the Tar Heels. Carey was minutes away from placing a phone call to in November that he would not be visiting Chapel Hill. (

Vernon Carey Decision Coming Thursday

The end is at hand for the top-ranked recruit in America, , who is down to Duke, Michigan State, and North Carolina. UNC already holds the commitment of , a five-star center, and while the Tar Heels will lose after this season, they have more than a formidable frontline. I don’t see it in the cards for the Tar Heels. I see Carey at Duke. (
