Adidas Gauntlet Sunday: Roy Williams Watches Christian Brown

During the final day of play at the Adidas Gauntlet stop outside of Atlanta things started off with five-star Christian Brown showing what he's capable of. There were a number of other coaches watching South Carolina coach Frank Martin’s in-state target.

Adidas Atlanta Saturday: Ashton Hagans makes his case

Nike EYBL: Coby White with a pair of 29-point games

Coby White's day: Just a pair of 29 point outings for the aggressive scorer from North Carolina. His pull-up jumper is as good as there is in the class of 2018 and he plays fast without being out of control. He could be an instant impact guy at North Carolina and Roy Williams had to have been happy to have him locked up while watching him play. (Rivals.com)

Josh Nickelberry’s time is now

Josh Nickelberry is not interested in waiting his turn. Yes, it’s his first year at the 17s level on the adidas Gauntlet and, sure, he’s well aware that he’s an underclassmen with “plenty of time,” but he’s not OK with just showing flashes of stardom. He’s well on his way with everyone from national champion North Carolina to Connecticut to Florida, among many others all in hot pursuit. (USA Today)

2020 forward Isaiah Todd isn't concerned with his 'next big thing' buzz, only on getting better

Isaiah Todd is the prototypical new-age big; 6-foot-10, handles the ball like a guard, gets up and down the floor like a gazelle and knocks down the perimeter shot respectably. Coaches from UNC, Kentucky, Duke, Kansas and Villanova all watched Todd score 21 points, grab 13 rebounds and block six shots to lead Team Loaded-VA 16s past Texas Pro in overtime 61-58 at the adidas Gauntlet.

Zion Williamson is staying put for his senior year

It’s not uncommon for elite players to follow their breakout season with news of a transfer for their senior finale. But that won’t be the case for Spartanburg Day School’s Zion Williamson, a 6-foot-8 forward who took the country by storm as a junior racking up millions of views on his highlight clips showcasing unfathomable dunks. “I’m staying,” said Williamson. (USA Today)

Romeo Langford scores 20 in front of big name coaches

2019 PG Ashton Hagans: "UNC is starting to recruit me"

Ashton Hagans started the night off slowly. Down the stretch though, he was terrific for Game Elite in their win over YIIS Texas Future. He had several tough finishes in the paint and did a great job distributing the ball to teammates. His size and quickness can be overwhelming for opposing point guards. Quote: “UNC is starting to recruit me. They said they are going to be watching me more this weekend.” (Rivals.com)

Roy Williams watches Nazreon Reid in Indianapolis

One of the most talented players in the class of 2018, Nazreon Reid went for 16 points and 10 rebounds during his Sports U team's Friday night win over Team Thad. Recently, the loss of his friend has been weighing heavily on Reid and he's using it to motivate himself and be the best that he can be. North Carolina hasn't offered, but Roy Williams was on hand to watch and so was Kentucky's John Calipari. (Rivals.com)

Will the NBA decisions of Pinson, Bradley impact the recruitment of Kevin Knox?

UNC has made Kevin Knox its top 2017 target for two years. With Justin Jackson leaving, UNC is using a similar pitch — Knox can come in and provide an immediate impact along the perimeter. The situations with Theo Pinson and Tony Bradley do not have a great deal of bearing on Knox’s final choice. UNC has the scholarship room for Knox whether those players come back or not.
