UNC basketball recruiting: Roy Williams to visit a pair of top players

Roy Williams is back to recruiting just days after the North Carolina Tar Heels won the national championship

Even with the North Carolina Tar Heels winning the 2017 national championship on Monday night, head coach Roy Williams isn’t done working.

Williams and the team have celebrated the title the last few days but now it’s back to the recruiting trail for the head coach.

According to Inside Carolina’s Sherrell McMillan, Williams is set to pay a visit to the top two players in the 2018 recruiting class.

The NCAA’s recruiting period begins at noon on Thursday, allowing coaches to visit recruits again and when he does, he will have some new bling to show off.

Williams first stop will be to see five-star recruit Romeo Langford on Thursday afternoon in New Albany, Indiana. Langford is the consensus No. 3 overall recruit in the 2018 class and has already picked up an offer from UNC.

He’s ranked as the No. 1 shooting guard in the class.

The guard visited Chapel Hill in October of 2016. Langford also has offers from Duke, Kentucky, Louisville, Kansas and Indiana.

After Williams visits Langford, he will travel to South Carolina to visit the recruit that has everyone talking.

Williams is set to meet with rising star Zion Williamson on Friday in Spartanburg. It will be an in-home visit for Williams and Williamson as the Tar Heels try to land the No. 2 player in the 2018 class.

The 6-foot-7 forward was offered by the Tar Heels in July of 2016 and already has an impressive list highlighted by Duke, Kentucky, Kansas, Arizona and South Carolina.

The hype around Williamson really started to grow in 2016 when videos of the recruit throwing down big dunks were posted all over social media.

Williams has watched Williamson play several times and the recruit has taken three unofficial visits to Chapel Hill.

The Tar Heels currently have two players signed in their 2018 class in Rechon Black and Coby White. The class is currently ranked number three by 247 Sports behind Arkansas and Ohio State.
