The national recruiting services have updated their class of 2017 basketball recruiting rankings today. Here’s where each of North Carolina’s 2017 commits ranks.
247Sports creates a ‘composite’ ranking, using its own rankings along with ESPN, Rivals, and Scout. Those were updated for the class of 2017 today. Here is how the rankings shook out for each of the four players joining the North Carolina Tar Heels next season:
Four-star CG Jalek Felton (Columbia, SC):
Three-star C Brandon Huffman (Raleigh, NC):
Three-star SG Andrew Platek (Northfield, MA):
Three-star PF Sterling Manley (Pickerington, OH):
North Carolina continues to produce top teams without landing a ton of five-star, one-and-done type talent. Roy Williams is bringing in another class that fits that mold this year, so far at least. Felton is the only blue chip player of the four in UNC’s class, although there are still a number of top recruits available that UNC can try and add to this group. The Tar Heels’ class is currently ranked No. 6 in the ACC and No. 28 in the nation.
