Top NCAA Basketball recruiting class in the ACC – North Carolina

North Carolina takes the ACC top seed against a Duke recruiting class with 4 5 star recruit. Saying UNC is deep doesn’t do their 6-man group enough justice.

Leading the class is 5-star point guard Caleb Love. He’s a 6-3 competitive two-way player whose honing his leadership skills. His score first mentality will be an immediate impact in the ACC, especially for a team whose starting point guard is a double-digit scorer. The McDonald’s All American is gaining steam as a player rising 17 spots in recent rankings to number 6 in the nation.

Dayron Sharpe stands as the number 2 center in the nation. Another McDonald’s all American that will bring size and toughness to an already big frontcourt. A high motor with solid athleticism will power Sharpe his first season, even if he’s still raw.

Entering UNC’s ranks as the 19 best prospect is 7 footer, Walker Kessler. The big man stretches a defense and holds his own on the other end. He’ll bring a post scoring punch to an offense that ranks eighth in the ACC. Get this he too is a McDonald’s All American.

For a second year, Roy Williams will usher in another New York guard. Next year RJ Davis will bring elite quickness to UNC. On the smaller side at 5-11 Davis uses that gift for disruptive plays on defense. The fourth McDonald’s All American in this upcoming class excels as a distributor.

Puff Johnson brings more floor spacing to a talented cast. A rangy athlete with 6-7 size and length that will make Johnson a plus defender when he fills out. The big lefty with a quick release is exactly what UNC needs as they’ll lose two 35% three-point shooters will leave the program.

Kerwin Walton, UNC’s latest commit introduces more size to a solid guard core. Shooting and a 6-5 frame are encouraging for a player that has his best basketball ahead of him. Another sharp passer who can fill up the bucket when his number is called.
