Breaking Down Carolina Basketball's 2020 ClassCaleb Love
: Clint Jackson, Props – “I really like Love’s size and shifty burst in the open court. He dusts people off the bounce with his change of speed and first step. He’s an athlete who defends, rebounds and scores.” Clint Jackson, Opps – “I think shooting the ball more consistently is an area of growth for him. That, and being a better pure point guard."

What are UNC's chances with Ziaire Williams?
UNC is still in the running for Ziaire Williams
despite being full on scholarships. Early departures and unexpected defections happen, which is why the Tar Heels remain in touch with the five-star recruit. Their only chance would be for Williams to hold off from committing until after the season - and a roster loss. Only then would UNC have a chance. (Rivals.com

Video: UNC Commits Caleb Love, Day'Ron Sharpe Show Out at Thanksgiving Hoopfest
North Carolina 5-star center signee Day'Ron Sharpe
and 5-star UNC point guard signee Caleb Love
put on a show at this past weekend's Thanksgiving Hoopfest in Duncanville, Texas. Here's a look at some of their highlights from the event.
Caleb Love, Day'Ron Sharpe Impress At Thanksgiving Hoopfest
Two of the three five-star prospects in UNC's 2020 recruiting class
took the court at the Thanksgiving Hoopfest. Both Day'Ron Sharpe
and Caleb Love
were impressive. Sharpe, well, he's just a total monster. Love is more comfortable as a scoring lead guard, but he's plenty capable as a passer and defends well. He's also a sneaky one-and-done candidate. (Rivals.com

2021 5-star point guard Kennedy Chandler sets unofficial UNC visit
A week ago, Roy Williams
offered class of 2021
5-star point guard Kennedy Chandler
. Following the offer, Chandler admitted it was ‘huge’ and planned on visiting Chapel Hill. Chandler already has taken some college visits and has more scheduled in the coming months, including an unofficial visit to UNC on Feb. 8 for the home matchup against Duke. (Keeping It Heel
Day'Ron Sharpe "a total beast" at Thanksgiving Hoopfest
North Carolina-bound Day'Ron Sharpe
was a total beast on Friday. This guy is big, he's mean, he's physical, he has skill and possesses a pair of hands that belong in the realm of guys like Kevin Love and Jared Sullinger. Sharpe continued a trend of improving each time he hits the court. He looks like a legitimate instant impact/one and done type big man. (Rivals.com
Will UNC land anyone else in its 2020 basketball recruiting class?
My bet is that North Carolina is not done with its 2020 basketball recruiting class
. The Tar Heels will attempt to draw out the recruitment of Ziaire Williams
, though I do not see the five-star playing things out that long and instead, will commit to a west coast-based school. Greg Brown
is a far-fetched target. Their final strike could come with a grad-transfer. (Rivals.com

When it came time for Harrison Barnes
to decide it was going to be Duke, North Carolina, or hometown Iowa State. The thought was that he would select the Blue Devils. During a press conference at his high school, Barnes Skyped the winning coach and everybody in the crowd was surprised to see Roy Williams
on the receiving end of the call. (Rivals.com
