·1 min read

The UNC basketball program is targeting some big prospects for their 2024 class and five-star guard Paul McNeil is on their radar.

While UNC has yet to offer the talented recruit out of Rockingham, North Carolina, they are showing a lot of interest in him early on. McNeil has a total of 10 offers in his recruitment so far including from Indiana, Clemson, LSU, Florida State, NC State, and Missouri among others.

But the Blue Bloods are also after him.

McNeil told Rodd Baxley of The Fayetteville Observer that he’s hearing from everyone in his recruitment including UNC, Kentucky and Kansas:

Rockingham’s rock star on the court, McNeil has heard from “almost everybody” at Division I programs across the nation. Kansas, Kentucky and North Carolina are among the heavyweights that have shown interest.

He also went on to say that Davis texted him recently and wants him on campus soon for a visit:

“He liked my game and wanted to get me on campus soon, so you don’t want to be cocky … you just stay humble and keep doing your thing.”

The 6-foot-6, 185-pound McNeil is ranked No. 20 overall, the No. 7 shooting guard, and No. 2 player in the state of North Carolina per the 247Sports recruiting rankings.
