The future of the UNC Women’s Basketball program appears bright, as four commits were named to the Jordan Brand Classic.
The UNC Women’s Basketball program has four incoming freshmen in this year’s recruiting class. It’s safe to say that Tar Heel fans should be very excited about this talented incoming freshman group.
On Monday, the Jordan Brand Classic officially announced their national team roster for the class of 2021. Each year, 30 of the top standout high school players throughout the country are selected for recognition.
This year, all four of the Tar Heels incoming recruits have earned recognition for this honor.
North Carolina joins the University of Connecticut as the only programs with four players on the team. The two collegiate programs alone make up eight of the 30 selections (over 25% of the roster!).
Here are the Tar Heels selections for the Jordan Brand Classic National Team:
Destiny Adams (Manchester Township HS, NJ)
Teonni Key (Cary HS, NC)
Kayla McPherson (Madison County HS, GA)
Morasha Wiggins (Kalamazoo HS, Mich.)
Here is an official statement from UNC Women’s Basketball coach Courtney Banghart regarding the Jordan Brand Classic National Team selections:
“I’m so enormously proud of Destiny, Teonni, Kayla, and Morasha for being selected to the Jordan Brand All American game. This is entirely a merit-based opportunity, which only 30 players nation-wide have earned. All four of these special people have had brilliant high school and club careers and we are grateful to have them represent both North Carolina and the Jordan Brand! The entire Tar Heel family is eager to have Des, Teonni, Kayla, and Mo in Carolina blue very soon.”
For the second straight year, no in-person event will be held for the event. You can learn more about the Jordan Brand classic by viewing their official website, and can access the entire roster for this year’s event here.
