Justin Jackson commits to UNC

35 posts in this topic

Justin Jackson (from Spring, Texas), the 3rd ranked small forward and the 14th ranked player overall in the 2014 class will be bringing his talents to Chapel Thrill!

This gives Carolina two players in the top 15 for the 2014 class (Joel Berry, Justin Jackson).

Welcome to the family Justin!!!

2014 looking good. Jackson and Berry are really good. Maybe we can still add Wiggins for 2013.

There will be a National Championship in Chapel Hill very, very soon.

If Wiggins commits and JMM, Hairston, and Bullock stick around they are a legitimate title contender next season.

I've been telling all my friends and family that are Dookies/State/ABCers .....get your shots in now with trash talking.

Slow your roll there hoss cat.... Until we solidify down low we'll struggle to contend for the title.. I know you're high on Meeks but really we don't know how it's gonna go

Like what I've heard about this kid. Great pickup.

I really want Wiggins for next year though. I hear he's going to FSU, but you never know.

His floater is a thing of beauty, my only concern is that he doesn't look like he has great up's.

While I dont think UNC would be favorites to win a title without better big men, there really arent a lot of good big guys in college basketball who can hurt you. The ACC has 2 of the best in Plumlee and Len, but neither one of them dominates to the point where you have to change your entire defensive strategy.

Honestly, maybe Roy's system is better off with more small ball lineups- when you combine that fast pace with good spacing and shooters, the offense is pretty potent. And imagine how much better defensively UNC's small ball lineups would be with, say, John Henson in the middle instead of Mcadoo?

    • You do realize no one wanted RyanCare/ObamaCare Lite to pass, right? If anything, the media and democrats has made themselves absolute fools lately. STILL no evidence Trump colluded with Russia whatsoever, which is quite the funny irony in this whole conspiracy. Trump inherited a mess. Hard to fix this mess when you got crybaby globalists and dems everywhere.    
    • I hate this DG analogy so much.  It only makes sense in the context of an efficient market where teams are rational, have perfect information, and scouts are always right about players.  But we have ample evidence that is not the case.  Sometimes, talented players just don't work out.  Injuries derail careers.  Teams make oddball picks.  Sometimes, you are just wrong about a player (see Ealy, Kony). I like him a lot, but DG's habit of always trading up / never trading down may ultimately be his downfall in CAR.  It results in a lack of depth across the roster and it makes your roster very vulnerable to i) injuries (see 2015 vs. 2016) and ii) missing on evals.  If we missed on Funchess (jury still out), that hurts - but missing on Funchess when you traded multiple picks to get him compounds the issue. Trading up and trading down are both valid strategies - but I'd suggest balancing the two strategies would improve your chances of long-term success.
    • He is worth #8 pick. I'd like to see him next to Newton on the field.
