Robert Johnson has slowly become a fan favorite for the Tar Heels to add to their 2014 recruiting class this summer. The 6-3, 180 pound shooting guard was in Chapel Hill over this past weekend and reportedly had a great visit. But with the looming rumor that he will be announcement his destination as early as next week, are the Tar Heels the favorite to land him?
I truly believe for a couple of reasons, Robert Johnson will be committing to North Carolina next week. Just seems to suspicious that he’s decided so randomly to reportedly make this announcement as early as next week when it seemed he was going to take his time.
Rashad Vaughn Schedules a Visit
Just a few hours after fellow classmate Rashad Vaughn announced that he had scheduled, suspiciously reports began to surface that Johnson would be making a final decision as to where he will play college basketball in 2014 as early as next week.
It just seems too good to be true that another recruit that has an offer from UNC, schedules his visit with the school and then another player with an offer announces that he will be committing somewhere next week.
I think that Johnson felt the pressure of Vaughn visiting and doesn’t want to lose his chance to wear Carolina blue. Not only did Vaughn’s planned visit push Johnson to make a quicker decision, but I think he it just confirms that Johnson wants to play for UNC. With one last scholarship up for grabs it became important to Johnson to make a decision before its gone.
Johnson Had a Great Visit at UNC
The most selling point to Johnson has to be his recent trip to campus. He had a great visit and experienced the atmosphere of UNC Football.
The trip gave him a chance to experience the campus and meet with Roy Williams and his staff yet again. It was there, Williams pitched a winning big to Johnson which sold him on the Carolina Way.
I truly believe these two recent factors have sealed the deal for UNC to land Johnson, and I’d be shocked when and if he announces next week if he chooses another school not known as North Carolina.
