Two developments for UNC target Justin Knox seem to position him as a likely post player for the Tar Heels.
Justin Knox, a 6’9″ center who graduated in three years from Alabama, is transferring and eligible to play one more year. Since he’s already graduated, he will be able to play next season.
Knox’s original choice was to play at UAB, but the stipulations of his transfer prohibited the move. Despite an appeal, he won’t be able to attend UAB.
After Knox took a visit to UNC last weekend, he stated that he had offers from several schools, according to InsideCarolina:
After the visit, North Carolina has emerged as the leader for Knox’s services over Georgia Tech, South Alabama, Georgia State and Southern Miss. The Tuscaloosa, Ala. native has confirmed scholarship offers from all five schools.
Knox then went on to state that as of now, North Carolina is “leading the pack”.
The Tar Heels are hoping to bring in a couple of post players for next season to replace the sudden losses of David and Travis Wear, who decided to transfer following the 2009-10 season.
