On the last day of his junior year, five-star Theo Pinson decided that he was ready to end the college recruiting process.
The 6-foot-6 small forward at High Point (N.C.) Wesleyan Christian Academy held a press conference at his school on Wednesday afternoon and announced that he will be playing his college ball at North Carolina.
Ranked as the No. 15 player in the 2014 Rivals150, Pinson ended a few days of intense hand-wringing that led up to his announcement and made Roy Williams and the Tar Heel nation very happy.
A long and athletic player, Pinson should be an ideal fit for the Tar Heels' up-and-down style. He will get out and finish in transition, excels at working along the baseline and has always been underrated as a passer off of the dribble and out of the high post.
But for his part, Pinson is not looking too far ahead.
"I want to focus on my senior year and academics, and winning a state championship. This will also give the other schools an opportunity to recruit other players."
Pinson also shows great promise on the defensive end, where his length, quick hands and ability to move laterally are beneficial. Although he's gotten a bit stronger, Pinson still needs to add more strength and he must continue to improve his jump-shooting and ball-handling.
"I feel like I can be a leader on and off the court," he said following his announcement.
With Pinson aboard, Williams and his staff have already put together a formidable group from the class of 2014.
Like Pinson, Texan Justin Jackson is a lanky wing and a five-star talent. Charged with getting those two the ball will be high end four-star point guard Joel Berry who currently ranks No. 21 nationally.
Thanks to that trio, the Tar Heels currently have the top 2014 recruiting class.
