As good as the coming season looks for the North Carolina Tar Heels, the 2013-14 season has the potential to be even better—and there is nothing wrong with looking ahead.
Last month, I went over UNC's scholarship offers for 2013, and there are a lot of solid players on that list. Nate Britt and Isaiah Hicks have verbally committed to Chapel Hill, and there could be anywhere from one to four open slots left.
Who will take those slots is a mystery—and will likely stay that way for a while.
I can't predict the future (though I tirelessly try), but what I can do is break down my top candidates for those slots. In no way do these picks mean they are leaning toward Carolina. They are simply who I would like to see fill the remaining needs on the roster.
Before we get into my top picks, let's take a look at the list of returning scholarship players.
