UNC landed far below expectations last basketball season. 14-19 is about as disappointing as it gets for a blue blood such as the Tar Heels. A team can’t possibly turn it around that quickly, can they?
UNC comes in with the third ranked recruiting class for 2020. 5 stars Caleb Love, Day’ron Sharpe, and Walker Kessler lead the way with Puff Johnson (brother of former player Cam Johnson) and RJ Davis as 4 stars. 2 star Creighton Lebo committed as a walk-on as well. Kerwin Walton plans to make his decision between UNC and Arizona on April 25th. If they land him, it will add all the more depth to the team.
Caleb, Walker, and RJ all won Player of the Year for their respective states. After being bombarded with injuries this past season, the Tar Heels have a lot of depth. If the team can stay healthy, what’s keeping them from making a final four? Caleb Love, Anthony Harris, Jeremiah Francis, Creighton Lebo, Puff Johnson, RJ Davis, and Andrew Platek are the main guards. Leaky Black can play anywhere from PG to SF also. Armando Bacot, Garrison Brooks, Walker Kessler, Day’ron Sharpe, Sterling Manley, and Leaky Black if they need, can play the 4 and 5 positions. With all this depth and a healthy team, UNC can be scary next season.
