With North Carolina's 2012-13 season all wrapped up and three 2013 recruits locked down, it's time to enter the prediction zone.
I have no doubt Isaiah Hicks, Kennedy Meeks and Nate Britt will make their marks on UNC's 2013-14 season. But how much will these young Tar Heels be able to contribute?
With both P.J. Hairston and James Michael McAdoo coming back for their junior seasons, there may not be a lot of room for these incoming freshmen to get their time in the spotlight. Unless Roy Williams decided to go small again—which I highly doubt—the power forward position is locked up for about 30 of the 40 minutes.
That means Isaiah Hicks and Kennedy Meeks may have to battle with Joel James, Brice Johnson and Desmond Hubert for minutes at the 5.
And we though it was a merry-go-round last year...
As tough as it was to predict stats for last year's incoming freshmen, the 2013 group will make my job even harder. But we're giving it a go anyway.
