The 2012 Jordan Brand Classic features the top 10 players in the ESPNU 100. The boys from Jordan Brand don't miss on many targets and they leverage the brand of the greatest player in basketball history to help populate their rosters.
ESPNU 100 point guard Marcus Paige (Marion, Iowa/Linn-Mar H.S.) inked his letter of intent on Wednesday, officially joining the North Carolina Tar Heels. Head coach Roy Williams commented on Paige to The Gazette (Iowa).
The North Carolina Tar Heels have an excellent recruiting class on their hands this year. It's going to be a highly-touted group. Let me repeat: highly touted group. The current four-man class, ranked in the top five, is the kind of group just about any high-major program would crave to sign.
ESPNU's Recruiting Nation airs on Thursday at 5 p.m. ET and features ESPN analysts talking football and basketball recruiting. Thursday's program will have ESPNU Recruiting Coordinator Reggie Rankin joining National Recruiting Director Paul Biancardi to discuss center DaJuan Coleman's commitment to Syracuse, Brice Johnson's pledge to North Carolina and top-ranked Shabazz Muhammad's current recruiting status.
