Roy Williams, Tar Heels extends the scholarships to 5-star grandmother
North Carolina's main player Roy Williams has set a new perspective from the 2020 class. His latest goal, Greg Brown, received a scholarship offer from Tar Heels Sunday afternoon according to Inside Carolina's Sherrell McMillan.
Brown is a 5-star force ahead of Vandegrift High School, just north of Austin, Texas. Before Sunday, he already held offers from a number of large name schools, including among others. Baylor, Cal, Florida, LSU, Memphis, Nevada, Oklahoma and UCLA. Kentucky will more than likely offer Brown at some point in the near future, and it would not be a shock if Duke did the same.
Williams and Assistant Coach Steve Robinson first noted Brown during a recruiting trip to see Will Baker, a 5-star center that has since committed to the Texas Longhorns. During the visit, the long-standing coaching duo who looked at Brown set an impressive 27-point performance and decided to keep an eye on him.
Now, just a week after Brown recorded a triple-double with Williams present, Tar Heels has officially added him to their list of 2020 goals. He joins Jeremy Roach, Isaiah Todd and Ziaire Williams as juniors with UNC offers.
Brown's 6-foot, 185-pound has tremendous upside, what with his 6-foot 10-inch wingspan and excellent jumping properties. He is a versatile athlete who works as a player who can play and protect multiple positions on the court. His leaping ability and dunking skill is remarkable, just like his speed in transition. He can also influence the game from a defensive point of view, especially as a shotblock.
His long, wiry frame is useful in many situations, but he could stand to emphasize before arriving at a university campus in the summer of 2020. And despite the work he has put on the offensive side of the ball , his mid-range to long-distance shot needs work, as does his ability to handle the ball, especially in traffic.
There are no real indications at this time when Brown will end or if he leans in either direction. I expect a number of blue blood disorders to play in his decision, as well as his home town of Longhorns.
Brown is the No. 6 prospect in the 2020 class according to the 247Sports Composite. He is the No. 1 power forward in the class and the neighboring player from the state of Texas.
! Stick to keeping it Heel for the latest on Brown, and all that recruits North Carolina.
