Well, the Duke Blue Devils have been grabbing all the national headlines lately, but the North Carolina Tar Heels have an amazing recruiting class coming to Chapel Hill next season. It seems the rivalry games will only get more heated in the future, and you will not hear any complaint from me about that.
Much thanks to Brooke Pryor for noticing this, and you can bet that my DVR is already set for the Jordan Brand Classic.
All three UNC hoops commits – Theo Pinson, Joel Berry and Justin Jackson – for next season are playing in the Jordan Brand Classic

In related news, I will be at the McDonald’s All American game this year and also the practices in the days before. You can follow my coverage of all of the week’s events on twitter or on google-plus as well, and there should be quite a lot of unique video and photo coverage.
It will be interesting to see if the players committed to ACC teams are starting to develop a rivalry with each other already; maybe that is something that has to develop over time though, and in today’s AAU culture, it almost seems like they are all best friends by the time they are seventeen.
Thanks as always for reading; I have one more Prep piece in the oven tonight and will hit you with a slideshow as well.
