UNC Basketball Recruiting: Theo Pinson to Announce College Decision on Wednesday

Moving on from the 2013 basketball recruiting trail, Roy Williams and the Tar Heels coaching staff are moving forward with their 2014 recruiting efforts.

So far for their 2014 recruiting class, Coach Williams has landed five-star point guard Joel Berry and five-star small forward Justin Jackson. Another player they’d love to sign is Theo Pinson.

Per ESPN’s Dave Telop, Pinson will be announcing his college decision this coming Wednesday at 12:15 p.m. at his school.

The five-star shooting guard from Wesleyan Christian Academy is deciding between North Carolina, Duke, Indiana, Louisville, and Georgetown.

Indiana and Louisville are the favorites to land Pinson, but don’t count North Carolina out. While North Carolina has focused on Rashad Vaughn, that doesn’t mean Pinson has thrown the idea of being a Tar Heel away.

However, it appears he has thrown the idea of being a Blue Devil away. Most recruiting websites have said that Duke is already been eliminated, from his final five list.

Pinson is ranked No. 15 overall in the 2014 recruiting class by Scout and is very talented in transition. Which of course fits the North Carolina playbook perfectly!

North Carolina has three other offers out for three other players in the 2014 class: D’Angelo Russell, Rashad Vaughn, and Devin Booker. All three are shooting guards.
