Five-star believes he fits well with G.G. Jackson

·1 min read

Hubert Davis and the UNC basketball staff have made five-star small forward Matas Buzelis a priority in the 2023 class. And rightfully so.

The 6-foot-9, 175-pound small forward out of New Hampshire is a top 10 prospect in that 2023 class and has 13 offers with programs like UNC, Kentucky and Florida State in pursuit of him.

With North Carolina having two five-star commits already in Simeon Wilcher and G.G. Jackson, adding someone like Buzelis would be the icing on the cake for the class. But how would Buzelis feel playing alongside someone like Jackson who was recently named the top recruit in 2023?

Jamie Shaw of On3 caught up with Buzelis during an AAU event and he thinks the duo would fit really well alongside each other:

“I think GG and I would fit really well beside one another,” Buzelis said. “We’re both big wings; I can get it to him, and he can shoot it. We can both run the floor and handle and shoot.”

That’s certainly good to hear if you’re a UNC fan and we already know that Jackson and Wilcher are both actively recruiting Buzelis as well. While there’s a long ways to go in his recruitment, that quote is encouraging for UNC fans.
