Analyst: How E.J. Montgomery would fit in at UNC
E.J. Montgomery would be a welcomed addition in Chapel Hill. Garrison Brooks, Sterling Manley and Brandon Huffman have given North Carolina good minutes, but I think Montgomery, the No. 12 recruit in the 247Sports Composite, is a superior player and would give them a more versatile look in the post. He has unofficial visits set for UNC and Duke next week.
UNC Basketball Recruiting Notes: Bacot, Little, Carey
Roy Williams took a trip to Fort Lauderdale, Fla. this week to see 5-star power forward Vernon Carey Jr. Carey is the No. 2 player in the Class of 2019 and will take his first official visit to Michigan State this weekend. In town for the North Carolina-Duke game were 2019 5-star PF Armando Bacot and 5-star UNC SF signee Nassir Little, the No. 6 player in the 2018 class.
Armando Bacot to attend UNC-Duke game
2019 five-star Armando Bacot will attend the Duke versus North Carolina game tonight as first reported by recruiting analyst Andrew Slater. Bacot, a 6-10 post player from Richmond (Va.) Trinity Episcopal School, has offers from both schools to go along with numerous other offers. Bacot is ranked No. 20 in the 247Sports Composite.
E.J. Montgomery breaks down recruitment
Ranked No. 11 in the senior class, 5-star power forward E.J. Montgomery is working with a final-11 list that includes North Carolina, Duke, and Kentucky, among others. Roy Williams made two visits to Georgia last week to see Montgomery, and John Calipari was expected in Wednesday. UNC and Duke will both host him for unofficial visits over the next week.
UNC in Good Position with E.J. Montgomery
Last week, Roy Williams visited 5-star power forward E.J. Montgomery twice, the latter coming with an offer to the Wheeler High standout. Williams is not going to leave his Chapel Hill abode during the meat of the ACC season if he doesn’t feel like Montgomery is someone he has a legitimate shot at. UNC remains in a much better spot than any others outside Duke.

What JamesOn Curry thinks of UNC recruit Coby White passing him as NC’s all-time leading scorer
No high school basketball player in North Carolina had ever scored more points in a career than JamesOn Curry. Curry, now 32, got a call last week that his scoring record had been eclipsed.
