Future Heel Brandon Robinson Evolving

Covering basketball recruiting can sometimes be a tough job. Some kids never answer the phone or texts. Some won't do interviews, period, unless you catch them in person. Even then, some of them might sneak out. Some won't really offer up much information in response to the best probing questions....Brandon Robinson does not fit into that category. He's an open book.

Rawle Alkins Blog: Nursing a bum ankle, SAT, equal time to rival schools and more

Rawle Alkins: "It’s funny down here with college basketball. The fans here are crazy! I have to pick which games I go to between the two North Carolina schools carefully because I don’t want one school feeling like I’m favoring the other. They’re big rivals too! So I try and give equal time to both N.C. State and North Carolina. I went to the State game first last week then I went to see the North Carolina game. Great times at both." (USA Today)
