UNC Recruiting: Week of 11/12

New, comment

It was a week of mixed results for the football and basketball programs.

NCAA Basketball: Stanford at North Carolina Rob Kinnan-USA TODAY Sports

The basketball team lost a recruit to Duke, received positive news about a class of 2019 power forward, and officially welcomes two new Tar Heels to the family. The football team has begun to search the JUCO ranks to salvage an otherwise underwhelming recruiting class compared to previous years.

Football:

  • Kelly Bryant was on campus for an official visit two weeks ago and is scheduled to make his decision on Dec. 4th. In addition to North Carolina, Bryant has also visited Arkansas, Missouri, and Auburn. There are anticipated visits to Miami and Mississippi State prior to his decision date. We have argued both sides about the potential of Bryant under center for the Heels next season.
  • JUCO defensive lineman Ray Vohasek announced he will take an official visit to the season finale against N.C State. An injury forced him to redshirt this season, meaning he would arrive on campus with 3 years of eligibility. His presence will be needed as the Heels lose Malik Carney, Jalen Dalton, Jeremiah Clarke, and Tyler Powell to graduation.

  • 4-star power forward Zeke Nnaji will take an unofficial visit to UNC before making a college decision. Nnaji will be on campus this weekend when the Heels host Tennessee Tech. Akil wrote about this when news first popped about the scholarship offer. Nnaji has at least maintained that he remains open-minded, despite sticking to a firm November 23 decision date.
  • Boogie Ellis announced his intention to go to Duke. Pending any surprise offers, the Heels are expected to now go all in on Cole Anthony.
  • At one point Vernon Carey Jr. was thought to be leaning towards announcing his decision during this month’s signing period which runs for eight days from November 14-21. That plan is currently up in the air. He took his final official visit to Michigan State last weekend, and his dad recently told Adam Zagoria that Carey will likely sign in the spring. That doesn’t mean he won’t verbally commit before then though.
  • Now for the good news! Both 5-star center Armando Bacot and 4-star point guard Jeremiah Francis signed their letters of intent on Wednesday. Both will be in Chapel Hill as early as next summer. Bacot is expected to be an instant contributor, while Francis’ timeline will depend on his recovery from two knee surgeries in the last 18 months.
