Wiggins vs. Parker would be an amazing match-up but Wiggins is going to have a great visit this weekend. Maybe we can strike a deal with Duke to let us kill them so we can get Wiggins lol.

Paige - Bullock - Hairston - Wiggins - McAdoo would have some insane potential for Carolina. Keep rolling with the small Duke type lineup and they're obvious contenders next year. Luckily, Wiggins to UNC would be a pretty big "upset" if you will.

That UNC lineup, UK, and Duke would be 1, 2, and 3 next year in some order IMO.

Jackson is a great get for UNC and will be a solid guy from Day 1.

As for Wiggins, I see some of the hubris has subsided and rationale is taking over.

Also, Randle isn't committed? That's why it was big news this week when he announced a decision date.

@AdamZagoria: Per conversation w/

@TXboysbasketbal, Julius Randle is no longer considering Oklahoma and N.C. State. That leaves 4: UK, KU, Texas & UF.

Randle is a strong UK chance, Jason Jordan who is practically living in their house feels UK the whole time.

Wiggins is still a pretty strong FSU lean, but UNC does seem to have a chance. It will be a major coup if they get him honestly though.

Justin is a nice get for UNC and the kind of 3-4 year player you want going forward holding down the wing.

Theo has Indiana written ALL over him, bank the farm on that, Duke is done with him.

They will try for Justise, but they have Semi Ojeleye coming in and they kid is actually extremely good (and built.)

That would be amazing. Wiggins vs Parker...epic

That's what it's about.

Increasing your brand. I'm not talking about UNC or Duke either.

I remember a few years ago they had Beasely vs Mayo in the NCAA first round.

NCAA knows whatsup.

Wow you definitely have an inferiority complex, I don't think anybody said anything close to that plus everyone said Jackson was a good get. Chill bro.

Justin Jackson, now the 8th ranked player in the 2014 class was one of Jeff Borzello's (CBS Sports) standout from the NBPA Top 100 camp.

 

Borzello said the following about Jackson...

 

Justin Jackson, 2014: Jackson is just so difficult to defend because of his ability to knock down floaters and pull-up jumpers in the mid-range. It's something most players at this age don't have in the arsenal.

 

Here is some footage of Jackson at the NBPA Top 100 camp http://link.brightcove.com/services/player/bcpid1485598109001?bckey=AQ~~,AAAA98vWgjk~,T2LWL6W4Cn0c91h6jViJn5uusnK6GBum&bclid=1196296183001&bctid=2480063614001
