UNC Among 4 Working Hardest For Nassir Little

6'6" Nassir Little is the epitome of the student-athlete: a high-motor, freak athlete that brings a cerebral approach to the game, while earning well over a 4.0 GPA. "Arizona, North Carolina, Oregon, Kansas...those are the four new schools that are recruiting me the hardest right now. The guys from North Carolina, growing up I always watched them.

Where UNC Stands with Simi Shittu

North Carolina came in with an offer for five-star forward Simi Shittu last week. He had talked in the past about liking the Tar Heels, so an offer definitely had to have caught his eye.
