Kennedy Meeks Chooses UNC, Georgetown as His Final Two

The top center in the 2013 class and consensus five star prospect Kennedy Meeks has narrowed his list down to two programs, North Carolina and Georgetown.

Meeks has shown strong interest in Carolina visiting Chapel Hill on at least two different occasions recently.  After losing out on several top prospects and going without a commitment yet in 2012, Meeks has turned into a need for UNC.  The center is one of three current offers out in the class along with #1 prospect Andrew Wiggins and Noah Vonleh, both of whom recently reclassified.

Roy Williams offered Meeks in late April after scouting him several times and coming away impressed with the big mans exceptional passing ability which is viewed as the best amongst big men in the country.   Like current freshman Joel James, the concern right now is with his weight.  Once listed as high as 295 pounds, Meeks is down now to a reported 275.

A versatile player on the offensive end, Meeks has soft hands, can score in the post and can face up.  His combination of sheer girth and skill make him a potential match-up nightmare.  Even if Meeks cannot get down to an ideal weight by his freshman season, his ability to rebound and own his area of the paint will be valued at the next level.  If he chooses Carolina his ability to start the break as an excellent outlet passer will be a big asset.
