Predictions: Where will the top 2016 uncommitted basketball recruits go?

Numerous basketball recruits in the 2016 class are set to announce their college decisions before the end of the early signing period. Here is a look at where we think they will end up. (

Video: UNC commit Brandon Robinson with the huge slam

Class of 2016 North Carolina shooting guard commit Brandon Robinson can do more than just shoot. The 6-5, 160-pound prospect from Douglasville, Ga. posted a video of him dunking on an opponent in a recent game. The 247Sports Composite four-star guard takes the ball from the right side on a fast break and slams the ball home with one-hand. (Carolina Blue)

Where is Seventh Woods going to college?

People want to know, “Where is Seventh Woods going to college?” The Hammond senior finally will give that answer at a ceremony Wednesday morning, the first day of the fall early signing period. Woods narrowed his choices to Georgetown, North Carolina and South Carolina, but most feel he’ll be either a Tar Heel or a Gamecock. Woods has done his best to keep his choice a secret, even to his teammates. (The State)

UNC targeting five-star Rawle Alkins

North Carolina and 2016 five-star Rawle Alkins are getting a double dose of each other this weekend according to Andrew Slater of 247Sports.

Roy Williams Confronts Recruiting Obstacles

Roy Williams said last week that recruiting has been “more difficult” with the ongoing NCAA investigation looming over his program. “I know that because of the stuff that’s been going on for the last two and a half years, I know we’ve suffered,” he said. “I’m not saying that’s the only reason, but you go back and look. We had a pretty good run of a lot of McDonald’s All-Americans and all of a sudden we don’t.” (Inside Carolina)

Roy Williams was in Columbia on Monday watching one of the Tar Heels' biggest remaining targets for the 2016 class. Williams was at the Hammond School to watch 6-1, 175-pound combo guard Seventh Woods. Woods is ranked as the No. 6 combo guard in the 2016 class.

Rawle Alkins: "I took an unofficial visit to North Carolina last weekend for the Late Night event and it was really fun. I loved talking to Coach Roy, he’s a really good guy with a great heart. For me, when I’m thinking about choosing a school, it has a lot to do with how the fans communicate with the players. Seeing how the UNC fans communicated with me was amazing!" (USA Today)
