UNC Recruiting Week in Review

Monday, August 20, 2012

Actually, this recruiting "Week in Review" will cover the past two weeks so we can get back up to speed. Here goes...


Roy Williams offered a scholarship to 2014 SF Justin Jackson, a consensus 5-star talent from Spring, TX. Jackson is the sixth member of the 2014 recruiting class to receive an offer.

One member of the 2014 class who has yet to receive an offer, but is garnering a lot of attention is power forward Isaac Copeland. Copeland visited UNC on Thursday and reportedly had a "good visit".

Several other basketball recruits who hold offers from UNC have recently taken visits to other schools: 2013 PF Julius Randle visited Oklahoma State on Saturday, 2014 SF Justise Winslow visited Stanford on August 10th, and 2013 SF Troy Williams visited Alabama last week.

2013 SG Wayne Selden has trimmed his list to six schools and eliminated UNC.

Meanwhile, 2013 center Kennedy Meeks says that NC State, Georgetown, and Louisville are currently recruiting him the hardest.

And in case you were wondering, it turns out that 6-foot-1 2013 UNC point guard commit Nate Britt can indeed dunk the basketball. It wasn't on the level of what incoming freshman J.P. Tokoto can do, but he got it down.

Friday was opening night for high school football in North Carolina. UNC WR commit Jordan Fieulleteau caught 8 passes for 110 yards, including a 38-yard touchdown, while RB Khris Francis rushed for 108 yards and two touchdowns. Here's how more of the current commits fared.

Ryan Switzer, a 2013 UNC receiver commit, was invited to play in the Semper Fi All-American Bowl in San Diego on January 4th.

2014 offensive lineman Trip McNeill was pleasantly "shocked" by his UNC visit on Thursday, August 9th. He received a scholarship offer during his visit.

2013 offensive guard Dorian Miller visited UNC the following day and said he was treated well.

Apparently UNC really wants to add another offensive lineman to the 2013 class. The coaching staff reportedly sent 2013 lineman (and Georgia commit) Brandon Kublanow 20 handwritten letters recently.
