Jeremiah Francis told Eleven Warriors that his decision to commit to the Tar Heels over the Buckeyes came down to the level of competition and the head coach. "Coach (Roy) Williams, 800-plus wins, multiple Final Fours and a lot of lottery picks and I want to be one of them. To play in the ACC, one of the best conferences in the country. And again, Coach Williams. I couldn't say 'no' to that." (Eleven Warriors)

Jeremiah Francis could continue North Carolina’s great PG tradition

For now, Marvin Bagley is still the No. 1 prospect in the 2018 recruiting class. Bagley, in our opinion, has separated himself from his peers and is far and away the top recruit in all of high school basketball. Zion Williamson, Cameron Reddish, Romeo Langford, Tre Jones, Darius Garland, Immanuel Quickley and Simi Shittu all claimed spots in the updated 2018 top 10. (Scout.com)

Simi Shittu Offers Interesting Thoughts on UNC

Simi Shittu, the 6-foot-8 power forward from Vermont Academy, says that Kentucky, Arizona, UNC, Vanderbilt, Notre Dame, Arizona State, and Ohio State are the schools recruiting him the hardest.
