2014 North Carolina basketball commit Theo Pinson has scheduled his first official visit with the Tar Heels. Pinson will be visiting the Chapel Hill campus on December 14th when the North Carolina Tar Heels play the Kentucky Wildcats for the first time in two years.

Pinson shocked college basketball fans and the media when he announced that he was committing to the North Carolina Tar Heels over the Indiana Hoosiers. It was widely speculated he would be choosing the Hoosiers as Tom Crean made it obvious how hard he was pursuing Pinson. However, when all was said and done that wasn’t enough to send Pinson to Indiana.
A native of North Carolina, the decision makes sense, but UNC had been very quiet on Pinson and it didn’t appear that they really wanted him while the focused had shifted on other recruits. However, they had attracted him enough to persuade him to Chapel Hill. Obviously, we didn’t see everything as Roy Williams had been laying the groundwork without the media even realizing it!
Pinson is a great fit for the Tar Heels and will represent that Carolina Way very well. He’s got speed, athleticism, and is an excellent defender.
