Theo Pinson Commits to UNC

Clint Jackson tweeted that he believes it's down to UNC/IU.  I'll say IU, but I have no real grasp on the situation.

No way he commits to UNC with Justin Jackson already committing to UNC.

Also, if I'm not mistaking he is a Duke fan.

Personally I'd rather have Vaughn than Pinson anyway. If Theo committed to UNC, that might steer Vaughn away from the Heels (I know Pinson is a SF, but they could always play him at the two guard spot).

Vaughn's latest comments make me feel he's drifting away from UNC...  he's the one I prefer, too...  wonder what happened to make him rethink the Heels...

They must have been really recent because about a week and a half ago Vaughn was behind the bench of Joel Berry's (UNC commit) AAU team cheering for him.

On top of that as early as last week, he was retweeting UNC fans that were telling him to come to Chapel Hill.

decision on Wednesday. Where is BigQueefDaddy with the inside info? I thought his college room mate had an uncle with a nephew of a cousin on the team with Theo and Harry? Inquiring minds need their fix, guy!

 

Going to be hard for a school like Indiana to pluck an elite, 5* basketball player from NC. Who knows though...maybe he wants to start his own legacy somewhere else. Indiana is very prestigious with excellent tradition and history.

“I went down there with my family and my coaches,” Vaughn told SNY.tv at the Nike EYBL stop here, reiterating comments he first made to Scout.com. “I liked the atmosphere of the Duke game and I have a good relationship with all the coaches. But I got back home and me and my parents talked about it, and we decided to just wait.”

 

 

Hoping he still comes to UNC, but I have to wonder just what made him back off...  Could just be deciding to slow down and not commit out of excitment, or some such...

Hopefully that's just it, he decided to slow it down.

A class if Berry, Vaughn, and Jackson would definitely have us moving in the right direction.

UNC has been the rumor of late but I'd be pretty surprised if its not IU. IMO it was always going to be Duke or IU and Duke seems to have backed off him a little bit.

There's that classy/respectable/educated unc guy! I have never met a more irrational, and uneducated person then you. My brother in law is an assistant coach at Wesleyan and he thinks it's IU but has not been told by Theo or the head coach. His view is that since Jackson has already committed to unc that has steered Theo to IU and he would be shocked if he chose unc.
