There were apparently four North Carolina basketball recruits in attendance for the Heels thrilling 82-77 win over #11-ranked Kentucky on Saturday. Theo Pinson in particular is a player that Tar Heel Nation will be welcoming with open arms, and he cannot arrive on campus soon enough.
Pinson will play for the Tar Heels next season, and is rated the #10 small forward in the 2014 recruiting class according to Scout. He will bring much needed wing versatility for the Heels who are currently missing P.J. Hairston due to NCAA miss-mash.
It has been tough for Heels fans hearing about all the exciting recruiting news coming out of Durham, but despite that these undermanned Heels have put together a nice stretch after a laughably bad stretch. We do not really know what to expect from game to game from the Heels. Head coach Roy Williams has been busy on the recruiting trail this month as well so kudos to the coach for putting in solid hours. Stay healthy too though Coach, saw that picture of you and Hubie Davis eating barbecue and sometimes just worry.
Best of luck to Pinson in his senior year and when he arrives in Chapel Hill will be interested to see if he can contribute at the starter level right away or if he will play more of a Marvin Williams role for the team. Should be fun to keep track of and thanks so much for stopping by Rant Sports Prep today, and as always a little fortune cookie wisdom that is hopefully also brain food.
