June 25th 2009—that's the day Roy Williams watched the biggest parts of one of the most talented teams he has ever coached walk away from Chapel Hill and right into the NBA. Any Coach would love to say they had the privilege to coach the likes of Tyler Hansbrough, Ty Lawson, Wayne Ellington, and Danny Green, and join them on the ride to the top of the mountain by winning the 2009 National Championship. On the other side of this story though, not every coach would like to face the reality of the next season with the loss of any of these players, much less all 4 at once.

What's up his sleeve for the 2009-2010 season? That's what this article is all about. Roy Williams' 2009 recruting class will be the #2 recruiting class in the country, bringing in five outstanding basketball players, 4 of which were McDonalds All-Americans in High School.
