UNC, Kansas Pursuing 2019 PF Matthew Hurt

Matthew Hurt earned five-star status in the 2019 class with his play last summer on the Adidas circuit with D-1 Minnesota.

Hurt said Kansas, North Carolina and “all the Midwest schools” are involved in his recruitment.

In home visits will be key for five-star Kevin Knox

Five-star forward Kevin Knox is a busy man. He is playing in the McDonald's All-American Game in Chicago this week. Then he's headed to Portland to play in the Nike Hoop Summit the following week. After that, he's off to New York for the Jordan Brand Classic. Three weeks, three all-star games, three cities, and very little time to make the biggest decision of his young life.

Roy Williams' recruiting blueprint works wonders

Despite missing out on a number of recent recruits to Duke, Kansas and Kentucky, the Tar Heels have made more trips to the Final Four than any of those programs since Williams arrived in Chapel Hill. It is due to Williams’ ability to connect with high school recruits that translates later on to wins. “How genuine (Williams) is, in a face-to-face situation, it is almost overwhelming,” Wes Miller said.

Kevin Knox knows when, he just doesn’t know where. “And that’s the problem,” Knox said with a laugh. “I have to figure that out. I just need time to do that.” Knox pegged the week of April 17, following the Jordan Brand Classic, as the time he’ll decide between North Carolina, Duke, Florida State and Kentucky because that’s Tampa Catholic’s (Tampa, Fla.) spring break.
