Roy Williams Tells Recruit Men’s Basketball Is 100% Clear of NCAA

Roy Williams, Luck

Roy, is there something you’re not telling UNC fans?

Well, if he’s not telling fans, he sure is telling recruits they have nothing to worry about when committing to UNC amid NCAA allegations. Although penalties have not struck yet, Roy Williams is staying hot on the recruiting trail trying to fix the seemingly deteriorating program and make it a top school once again. Williams and the 2015-2016 team are already being called a top 10 team with their returning players, but it seems that he’s having a tough time catching top recruits; even worse that they are heading to the town rival, Duke University. Williams somehow has to up the ante up and convince recruits why the sky is Carolina Blue.

When speaking to Sacha Killeya-Jones, Williams reassured the No.28 ranked player, that nothing was going to happen to the Men’s Basketball team via the NCAA.

“Coach Williams said he is 100 percent positive they’re not going to crack down on the men’s basketball team,” he said.

“If they got a major scholarship reduction or something like that, obviously you don’t want to commit to any scholarship that might not be there,” he added. “I definitely don’t want to commit before any punishments come down, even though I’m pretty sure there won’t be anything.”

“He was like, ‘I’m going to let you go down there and play pick-up in a second,’” said Killeya-Jones on Friday after the Under Armour All-American Camp at Queens. “’I just want to tell you we’ve heard a lot of good things about you and we’ve seen you play. I want to offer it (a scholarship) to you.’”
It has to be tough for Williams to bring in quality players while the school is under such scrutiny, but that’s why he gets paid the big bucks. This season will be big for UNC. Not only is it important for them to make a deep run in the ACC and NCAA tournament, but to also gel and stick together as a team; this season will be full of rumors and tough breaks. Its going to take a strong team and even stronger coach to show outsiders, that nothing is finer than being at Carolina.
