The 6-foot-11 Williams is ranked as a four-star recruit per 247 Sports. He’s out of Norfolk, Virginia and has drawn early interest from Clemson and Virginia.

Coby White Hosts Roy Williams on In-Home Visit

2018 combo guard and UNC commitment Coby White shot up the rankings after a great summer on the AAU Circuit. His versatile scoring ability and explosive plays in the lane have made him one of the more highly anticipated incoming Carolina freshman in recent memory. After taking an unofficial visit to UNC on Saturday, White hosted UNC coach Roy Williams on Sunday. (Inside Carolina)

5-star PF Matthew Hurt schedules unofficial visit, RB Coleton Beck narrows to 3

The next couple of months will see several UNC recruiting targets on campus for official and unofficial visits. We can add 5-star 2019 power forward Matthew Hurt to the list. Hurt’s father, Richard, said his son will head to Chapel Hill on Oct. 21. On Thursday, UNC got good news on Blacksburg, Va., native RB Coleton Beck when it was included in his top three schools, along with Virginia Tech and Pitt. (

4-star SF Wendell Moore at the top of Rechon Black’s wishlist

There are several 5-star targets on the UNC's recruiting board like 2018 forwards Zion Williamson and Nassir Little and 2019 forwards Vernon Carey Jr. and James Wiseman. But none are at the top of 4-star Tar Heels commit Rechon Black’s wishlist. That spot belongs to one player in particular, and it’s his high school teammate — 4-star 2019 small forward Wendell Moore.

Zion Williamson’s official visit schedule almost full

Zion Williamson has scheduled official visits for Kentucky and Kansas and is now slated to take official visits to Kentucky (Sept. 22), Kansas (Sept. 30), Duke (Oct. 22) and UCLA (Oct. 27). Recruits are allowed to take five official visits, so Williamson will have one remaining. Clemson, North Carolina and South Carolina are among the other schools seriously pursuing Williamson.

Roy Williams busy with in-home visits

It’s been a busy week for Roy Williams. On Monday, he went on in-home visits to both Class of 2018 commits — 4-star combo guard Coby White and 4-star forward/guard Rechon Black. Williams also visited 4-star 2019 shooting guard Josh Nickelberry in Mouth of Wilson, Va. Williams continued his trek Tuesday with a visit to Vermont for 5-star power forward Simi Shittu. (

Visit was ‘one of my best’ for Tar Heels commit Rechon Black

Last weekend was an important one on the recruiting trail for North Carolina’s basketball program. Coby White, Rechon Black and Jeremiah Francis, the three commits in the 2018 and 2019 classes, were on campus. Joining them were three major targets: 5-star 2018 small forward Nassir Little and 4-star 2019 small forwards Armando Bacot and Wendell Moore. (

UNC’s Roy Williams, Kentucky’s John Calipari, South Carolina’s Frank Martin, Notre Dame’s Mike Brey, Arizona’s Sean Miller and Vanderbilt’s Bryce Drew were all in the building.

Coby White excels despite loss of his father

North Carolina commitment Coby White hasn’t just proven to be one of the top players in the Class of 2018. He’s somehow managed to earn that status all while his father, Donald White, was dying from cancer. White’s father lost his battle with the disease Aug. 15, and USA TODAY’s Jason Jordan chronicled how White was dealing with the loss. (247 Sports)

Interest in five-star guard Ashton Hagans expanding to UNC, Kentucky

Point guard Ashton Hagans made a trip to Georgia for the Bulldogs football home opener. He’s also been at Auburn recently and been a regular on Georgia Tech’s campus. Virginia Tech offered him Friday, North Carolina offered last month, and Kentucky could be next to offer. On UNC: “I’m still open to them even though they have the point guard committed. They are still talking to me.” (

Checking In With Four-Star Forward Nate Laszewski

Although he had already accumulated a number of high-major offers, in July, a deluge of new ones rained down as coaches recognized the strengths of Nate Laszewski in modern, "small-ball" basketball. He's set to visit UNC, Notre Dame, and Wake Forest in the coming weeks. We caught up to discuss his strong AAU season, meeting Chandler Parsons, and upcoming visits. (247 Sports)
