The John Wall Holiday Invitational got underway on Wednesday morning at Broughton High School in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Quite a few college coaches were in attendance, as Hubert Davis was among those in attendance. The UNC basketball program's head coach was there to see four-star guard Jackson Keith, one of the top players out of the state of North Carolina in the 2025 recruiting class.

North Carolina has been interested in Keith, the No. 67-ranked player in the Class of 2025 (according to 247Sports), for quite some time. The Durham, North Carolina native already took an unofficial visit to Chapel Hill on September 16, as the interest in this in-state product seems to keep growing on the Tar Heels end.

Davis was on-hand for a big-time performance from Keith, who finished with a game-high 23 points to go along with 11 rebounds in a losing effort to The Burlington School.

North Carolina wasn't the only program there to see Keith, as NC State, LSU, Georgetown, and Notre Dame were among the schools there to check out the four-star wing. Based on reports from those who were in attendance, Keith did much more than just fill up his stat sheet.

Keith is a player who could rise up the rankings over the next few months, as his recruitment could be similar to the rise we saw from UNC basketball commit Drake Powell. Given his skillset and ability to impact the game on both ends of the floor, the Tar Heels won't be the only program that heavily pursues Keith as his commitment starts to heat up.
