UNC, Kansas "the ones to beat" for Romeo Langford

North Carolina hosted Romeo Langford on an official visit last weekend, while Kansas will do just the same in two weeks. Those two bluebloods are the ones to beat, though Indiana should not be discounted whatsoever. Archie Miller, since taking the Indiana job, has made it clear that Langford is the program's top priority and this weekend will be his chance to show him that. (Rivals.com)

Coby White Blog: Official visit, 'A' average, cancer awareness and more

Coby White: "I would like to tell you guys about the official visit at North Carolina that I recently took. I had an amazing time. As usual it was all love from my UNC family! Late night with Roy was a really fun event. It was a packed house. People showed up like it was a real game! The atmosphere was great and I feel like I got even closer to the team and coaching staff." (USA Today)

Darius Days to announce Friday

Friday could be another big day for the UNC basketball program as class of 2018 recruit Darius Days will announce his decision. The Gainesville, Florida native will pick between UNC and LSU. Days narrowed his list to five in August, naming UNC, LSU, Ohio State, Xavier and Louisville as his top schools. But after the FBI investigation involving Louisville, he eliminated the Cardinals.

Has success with developed talent changed Roy Williams' recruiting strategy?

Roy Williams landed Nassir Little, a top-20 player, earlier this month; but seemingly the only reason why is that Little was connected to the recent FBI investigation and the Tar Heels were the last school standing. But with the banner raised, a clean slate and a lack of big-name players in the program, UNC should continue to fight coaches K and Cal in the one-and-done game. (ESPN.com)

Late Night With Roy welcomed top basketball recruits

Since Zion Williamson is no longer a likely commit for the Tar Heels, Romeo Langford is now the star focus for the 2018 class. Another big name at Late Night was Wendell Moore, a five-star recruit for the class of 2019. The 6-foot-5 small forward from Cox Mill High School in Concord, N.C., currently has 11 offers, including a new offer from Duke on Friday — the same day as Late Night. (Daily Tar Heel)

Vernon Carey narrows list of colleges to 8

Vernon Carey Jr., the top ranked junior in America, has narrowed his college list to eight. A 6-foot-9 power forward with a 7-foot-1 wingspan, Carey has led a blueblood recruitment for over a year now. Settling into things further, Carey spoke about his final eight. “I am down to Michigan State, Miami, Florida, Duke, Kentucky, UCLA, Kansas and UNC,” he said. (Rivals.com)

UNC Tops Scout's Updated 2018 Basketball Recruiting Class Rankings

There was a bevy of commitments over the weekend, including six four-star recruits announcing their college intentions. The biggest commitment came from Scout's No. 18 prospect, Devon Dotson, who committed to Kansas over Maryland and others. That pledge jumped the Jayhawks up to No. 3 in the class rankings, behind No. 1 North Carolina and No. 2 Arizona. (Scout.com)

Nassir Little, father deny FBI allegations against Miami under oath

Orlando high school basketball player and recent North Carolina commit Nassir Little, whose recruitment by the University of Miami came into question as part of an FBI investigation, denied under oath on Friday the bribery allegations and any misconduct by the Hurricanes coaching staff. His father, Harold Little, signed a sworn affidavit, as well. (Miami Herald)

UNC basketball ready to start recruiting like a college basketball powerhouse again

When Nassir Little committed to UNC last week, it indicated the changing perception of the program to blue-chip recruits. Only a couple of years ago, recruits avoided Chapel Hill because of the uncertainty around the investigation. Now it feels like North Carolina is a safehouse within the NCAA. UNC is after five-star big man Simi Shittu and is in the running for five-star guard Romeo Langford. (SB Nation)

Why 5-star basketball recruit Coby White never reconsidered his commitment to UNC

Coby White said he “kind of knew” North Carolina would not face penalties as the NCAA mulled over whether or not to punish the university for its academic scandal. White, a five-star combo guard from Greenfield School in Wilson who committed to play basketball at UNC in 2016, said coach Roy Williams and his staff assured him and other recruits that the program would be okay.

James Wiseman Names UNC Among 3 Schools Standing Out

James Wiseman’s recruitment is at an all-time high. A 6-foot-11 power forward sporting a 7-foot-5 wingspan, Wiseman is the ideal big man in today’s game. Capable of scoring from all three levels on the floor, the lefty has seen three name brand schools stand out. “Kentucky, North Carolina and Kansas are the three schools that I am talking to the most,” he said. (Rivals.com)

Simi Shittu eyeing one-and-done college season, UNC, Vanderbilt in play
