The Tar Heels are bringing in a very deep recruiting class for the 2011-2012 season. The Heels bring in a top-five recruiting class to go along with an already stacked and talented team. They bring in James McAdoo, P.J. Hairston, Jack Simmons, Desmond Hubert and Stillman White. This class is jam packed with talent and should put the Tar Heels over the top this year.
James McAdoo is the top power forward coming out of this class. He is nephew of former Tar Heel Bob McAdoo. James has great hands, can score up to 15 feet, is a solid rebounder and will erase a lot of defensive errors with his amazing shot blocking ability. McAdoo is also a great dribble-driver for his size and should add a nice piece to the Tar Heel front court.
P.J Hairston is a true shooting guard with the size and strength for the position. Hairston 6'5", can shoot over much shorter defenders and is great at shooting off the dribble. Hairston is a three ball expert, a streaky shooter who can get on a role by hitting a few threes in a row. Not only is he good at shooting the ball, but he can get to the rim and us his size at the basket.
Jack Simmons is an undersized power forward, but is not afraid to bang down low with the big boys. He is a very underrated rebounder. Simmons is a great scorer off the pick and pop and has great touch on his shot. Simmons will bring great energy to this team, as he goes hard on ever play.
Desmond Hubert is a nice addition to the Tar Heels fast break game, as he is a big man that likes to get out and run the floor. He excels at beating opponents to the rim.
Stillman White is great at running an offense and knocking down jumpers.
This is a very talented recruiting class that could help lead the Tar Heels to a championship in 2012.
