NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Second Round-North Carolina vs Texas A&M Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Finally, we have some news on the basketball side of recruiting, after a quiet couple of weeks following Day’Ron Sharpe’s commitment. With the Peach Jam kicking off in Georgia, Roy Williams and his staff are getting a ton of evaluations and re-evaluations in, and we might be due for an offer or two being sent out sometime before the month ends.

  • Not much to do this week with football except tell you that Tony Davis (4-star DB) and Raekwon Anderson (3-star WR) are names to watch out for as far as UNC commitments. Both have been trending UNC’s way as of late. Anderson impressed at the Freakshow, and Davis, while committed to Duke, has long been rumored to be planning following fellow 4-stars Donavon Green and Zonovan Knight out of Durham.

  • You’ll notice that Cole Anthony has been added to the list of offered 2019 prospects. While recruiting sites do not have him listed with a UNC offer, but this New York Post article claims he owns one and he was the first prospect Roy Williams watched at Peach Jam starting on Wednesday. It seems safe to add him to the list at this point.
  • In the latest development in a convoluted recruiting process, Wendell Moore has scheduled an official visit to Chapel Hill. It will be the last one he takes, and it will be at 2018’s Late Night With Roy. He’s been a presumed Duke commit for months now and this shouldn’t really change anything, but it’s interesting, nonetheless.
  • We’ll report more fully on developments at Peach Jam after it’s over. It’s historically been a busy time for the UNC staff.
