Two UNC commits in new ESPN 100
By Robbi Pickeral
ESPN Recruiting Nation updated its recruiting rankings Thursday for upcoming incoming classes, and North Carolina has two 2013 commitments ranked in the top 25 of the ESPN 100.
Isaiah Hicks, a 6-foot-8 power forward from Oxford, N.C., is now rated No. 10 -- up a spot from the previous rankings. He verbally committed to the Tar Heels last August.
Meanwhile, Nate Britt, a 6-1 point guard from Washington, D.C., who verbally committed to UNC last November, comes in at No. 21.
Jabari Parker, a 6-8 small forward from Chicago whose offer list includes UNC, Duke, Kentucky, Michigan State and Illinois, is No. 1 on the 2013 ESPN Top 100. ESPN Recruiting Nation’s Mitch Sherman writes that Parker has not yet narrowed his list as to which schools he will visit.
