Update #2: Two items of observation on my part: (1) I wonder how much the Henson commit tilted the decisions here and (2) Talk about reloading. By the time practice opens for the 2009-10 season UNC could potentially have seven legit big men on the roster. You are looking at Deon Thompson, Alex Stepheson, Tyler Zeller, Ed Davis, John Henson, David and Travis Wear filling the center and two forward positions in some manner. Obviously there is not enough PT for all of them but the fact these guys can take time to develop means UNC is set on the blocks for awhile. Now if Roy can snag one of those two stout SGs we are high on and maybe another PG this team will be loaded.
Update: Inside Carolina is reporting the same, although it is a premium article. Nice work by Roy and the staff on three great pickups early in the 2009 cycle.
The UCLA Scout.com site, BruinReportOnline, is reporting that 6-9 junior twins David and Travis Wear, both four star recruits ranked #26 and #27 according to Scout have committed to UNC. If true, this would be huge pair of commitments for the class of 2009 coming right behind the commit from John Henson yesterday.
