Five-star 2024 recruit dishes on visit to UNC

·1 min read

Hubert Davis and the UNC basketball program appear to be on the brink of landing a big recruit in the 2023 class as G.G. Jackson nears an announcement.

But as for future recruiting classes, Davis and his staff have their eyes on a few other big prospects including Rockingham, North Carolina native Paul McNeil.

The 6-foot-6, 185-pound shooting guard has a total of six offers in his recruitment and is drawing significant interest from a handful of Atlantic Coast Conference programs like UNC, Clemson, Wake Forest and NC State among others. McNeil has been on UNC’s campus already and he talked about that experience with 247Sports recruiting analyst Eric Bossi.

Here is what McNeil had to say about his visit to UNC:

North Carolina: “Man, that was good. It was like the practice was really intense. When they run, they run hard and have to make it in certain times. How they flow, how they get their shots in practice I really like how that was.”

He also talked about what he wants in a program:

“I want to feel at home, and I want to feel loved. But I still want to get pushed hard as ever. I want to love the atmosphere and for coaches to really get at me and dig in me to make me better.”

As of now, there are no immediate plans for a decision from McNeil but the quotes above should be good news for the Tar Heels in this recruitment.
