The North Carolina Tar Heels will be welcoming three new players to their basketball roster next season. After losing team MVP Reggie Bullock and starting guard Dexter Strickland to the NBA draft, the five-time national champions have to replace two of their biggest leaders on the court.
Roy Williams has done a masterful job at recruiting this offseason. He has brought in two recruits that can stabilize the inside and can give help to James Michael McAdoo down low. The addition of another guard also gives Williams a nice backup to sophomore Marcus Paige.
With all the hype over what program will land Andrew Wiggins, North Carolina’s 2014 class has been flying under the radar for the last few months. But with a Wiggins decision looming around the corner, we’re going to go ahead and spark up the 2014 talk.
The recruiting trail is a long one, and we are merely just a few steps into the process. But Roy Williams did get a good jump on the competition, landing two Top 15 recruits in Justin Jackson and Joel Berry.
There is still a lot of needs, though, and we’ll discuss some of those in the following slides. We’ll also touch on some of the latest rumblings from prospects Ol’ Roy is hoping to land.
Tar Heel Illustrated is reporting that Andrew Wigginswill indeed be putting an end to all of the speculation and signing his National Letter of Intent.
According to his high school basketball coach, Wiggins will sign his letter of intent Tuesday at or around 12:15 P.M. in a private ceremony. There will be no press conference and his mother will be in attendance. Wiggins has awaited the arrival of his mother as he requested her presence during the signing.
