UNC Basketball Recruiting: 2014 SF Dwayne Morgan Cuts Tar Heels

2014 SF Dwayne Morgan announced his list of six schools to Indiana, Maryland, Missouri, Seton Hall, South Florida and UNLV.  Morgan had received interest from the Tar Heels and listed UNC on a long list prior to trimming his list today.  Morgan is one of the elite perimeter players in the nations 2014 class.  A consensus five star prospect, Morgan is rated the #4 SF in the class.  He did not however, hold an offer from Carolina.  

Roy Williams has three offers out to perimeter players in the class.

Andrew Wiggins the consensus top prep player regardless of class is considered a long shot favored to go to Florida State where his father played or Kentucky is still considering UNC.  The main targets at the position appear to be Justin Jackson and Justise Winslow whom both received offers from Carolina in July.

Jackson appears to be the strongest candidate at this point to accept his offer, he has been attending UNC basketball camps since the 8th grade and recently attended Late Night with Roy along with fellow 2014 star Shelton Mitchell and preps from the 2013 class that included Nate Britt, Isiah Hicks, Kennedy Meeks and Troy Williams.

New recruiting insider at Keeping It Heel John Finlayson believes that Morgan who is from Baltimore, could end up at the University of Maryland.  I do not believe this is something Tar Heel fans should worry about factoring in that Morgan did not even have an offer from UNC.  With three offers out to perimeter players and others like Jalen Lindsey and Rashad Vaughn still out there.
