2019 small forward in Chapel Hill for NC State matchup

2019 prospect Joey Baker was in Chapel Hill for the Tar Heels’ blowout victory over the North Carolina State Wolfpack on Sunday.

Baker, a 6-foot-7, 190-pound small forward out of Fayetteville, North Carolina, is a top-25 player in the class of 2019 according to the 247Sports Composite as well as a top-ten player at his position and the No. 1 prospect in the state of North Carolina.

Baker was also on hand in October when UNC held its annual Late Night With Roy event at the Dean Smith Center.

Although it’s still very early in his recruitment, 247’s crystal ball currently shows UNC as the favorite to land the talented prospect.
