Theo Pinson commits to North Carolina

Theo Pinson, a 6-foot-6 Greensboro small forward who is among the top junior prospects in the nation, has committed to North Carolina.

Pinson announced his decision earlier today during a ceremony at Wesleyan Christian Academy. He chose UNC over Duke, Georgetown, Indiana and Louisville.

ESPN.com ranks Pinson the 13th-best prospect in the class of 2014. With his commitment, the Tar Heels have commitments from the No. 12, 13 and 14th-ranked prospects in the junior class, according to ESPN.com.

Before Wednesday, UNC already had commitments from Orlando point guard Joel Berry, whom ESPN.com ranks the No. 12 junior prospect in the nation. Justin Jackson, a Tomball (Texas) small forward who is ranked the No. 14 prospect in the nation, also has committed to UNC.

Outside of UNC, no other school has more than one commitment from a top-50 player in the junior class.

Even better, take the top class for the past 5 years and post only 1 championship. Ooooohhh, that is definitely cute!

Another Kentucky troll,

This is Roy's third top 15 player in the this class and another 5 star recruit, They will most likely get a fourth. Heels are gonna be fine

Shocking - a UK Troll with the very first comment...

Signing top classes every year, yet still so insecure that they are obsessed with trolling UNC, Duke, Louisville and Indiana news items. You guys are so cute...

What?!?! Can you believe there's a talented player out there that didn't even consider Kentucky???? Jeez, Carolina MUST have cheated, huh?

Signed, HayseedU

Okay, I will bite back..

#1. It's hard to hear you over these 8 championship rings.

#2. I hope UNC will be fine. The UK/UNC rivalry is a great one.

#3. Pigz, tracters and tobaccy is all i knows.

#4. It IS out of the ordinary for a Charlotte resident to check out the paper online. In fact, I "troll" the Observer daily!

#5. We try to leave the recruits outside the top ten for you guys.

Obviously, all in jest here. My real hatred is for Duke.

And the Kentucky troll brings up the title count. Sweet man, you want a cookie? Its more like what have you done the last 10 years, and from my count Carolina has 2 titles, and lets be real if kendall marshall doesn't break his hand your boys very well may have 7, but we'll never know bc it didn't happen.

There is an awful lot of pressure on a bunch of young freshmen for UK next year to do something big and I have a feeling they may struggle a bit. Carolina is going to be VERY good next year they have experience with some youth and the next couple of years are going to be good ones for roy
