Complete coverage of North Carolina Tar Heels Basketball Recruiting.

2019 five-star SF Christian Brown racking up the offers

Christian Brown has added offers from USC, Kansas State, Baylor and UNLV to go along with new offers from NC State and UConn last week. North Carolina continues to watch him closely as Roy Williams was courtside on Sunday morning. On UNC: “I’ve been there a few times. I liked their campus. I didn’t really watch them play much this year except for the championship.” (

Analysis: 2017 PF Garrison Brooks

2017 power forward Garrison Brooks committed to UNC on April 21 and signed his letter-of-intent on May 1. He could play a big role next season regardless of Tony Bradley's NBA decision and certainly will if the rising sophomore stays if the draft. What type of player is Brooks and what will he bring to North Carolina? "Garrison Brooks is a relatively physical two-way big man." (Carolina Blue)

UNC "very intrigued" with 2018 wing Nassir Little

Nassir Little is no longer one of Central Florida’s best kept secrets. The 6-foot-6 wing has witnessed his stock heighten this spring. “UNC called and they seemed very intrigued about Nassir,” said Brad Augustine, program director of Little’s 1Family Hoops AAU program. "Coach Williams will be back in July to see him." UNC assistant Steve Robinson watched him in Dallas and Atlanta. (Zag's Blog)

Basketball Recruiting April Evaluation Period Superlatives

Because he makes things look so easy, Romeo Langford can sometimes leave you wanting more. However, he has size, he has athleticism and he has a pretty well balanced all around game. Even playing just "so-so" by his standards, I didn't see a better shooting guard in April. UNC, Duke, Indiana, Louisville, Kansas, Kentucky and others have offered. (

Video: 2019 SF Joey Baker Highlights from UA Association Session II

Highlights of the Team Felton small forward Joey Baker. Baker is a 2019 small forward with early offers from Kansas, Louisville, Texas, Wake Forest and more. He is also receiving strong interest from North Carolina but has yet to receive a scholarship offer. Read More...

Video: Romeo Langford Adidas Session 2 Highlights

Class of 2018 5-star shooting guard Romeo Langford holds a scholarship offer from North Carolina and is one of Roy Williams' top recruiting targets. Watch as he scores with ease from inside and outside during last weekend's Adidas event in Atlanta. Read More...

Josh Nickelberry describes what fuels his fire

2019 SG Josh Nickelberry (UNC offer): The greatest motivating factor that’s gotten me to where I am today is...“My dad. He’s just taught me so much about mentality and about the actual game that I owe him everything. I want to be able to take care of him one day so I’ve gotta make it. That’s a big thing that drives me when I’m on the court playing; he made me who I am.” (USA Today)

Five Takeaways from the Nike EYBL Indianapolis

The defending national champions are already off to a solid start recruiting this Class of 2018 as the Tar Heels own two commitments from guard Coby White and point forward Rechon Black. Although both are only considered four-star recruits, in a class that doesn’t have a lot of elite players, both White and Black showed flashes of being better than their rankings might indicate. (NBC Sports)

It’s May, and several top basketball recruits remain undecided

The five-star recruits left uncommitted in this 2017 class — Mohamed Bamba, Kevin Knox, Trevon Duval and Brian Bowen — are working on their own clock. They know the schools recruiting them will be glad to take them whenever they’re ready to commit, so there’s no rush to do so. Knox is planning to announce a college decision this week, according to his father. (Lexington Herald-Leader)

Ashton Hagans has big plans for the summer and next year at Oak Hill

Ashton Hagans is the top assist man on the adidas Gauntlet averaging eight per game. Hagans put on a show this weekend at the Gauntlet that’s built No. 1 point guard on the circuit buzz despite him being an underclassmen. On Saturday, Hagans dropped 22 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds. On Sunday, Hagans followed that up with a 13-point, seven-assist, six-rebound performance. (USA Today)

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. The one that should cause the most concern is if Roy Williams of North Carolina, who watched him Sunday morning, offers. (

Adidas Atlanta Saturday: Ashton Hagans makes his case

On Friday, Ashton Hagans made huge plays down the stretch to help Game Elite win a close one. On Saturday, Hagans made a case for being the best point guard in the 2019 class as he made big time plays against a really good Team BBC squad. Recruitment: Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Clemson, Wake Forest, LSU and others are involved. UNC is watching him closely. (

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. (

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.
