With UNC basketball’s 2022 recruiting class all set to be on campus by the end of this week, that means we are one step closer to the college basketball season.

Seth Trimble, Jalen Washington and Tyler Nickel will on be on campus for the first time this week, joining fellow member of the class of 2022 Will Shaver, a power forward who enrolled early at UNC in the spring.

According to InsideCarolina, the jersey numbers for the four freshmen have been finalized and are as follows:

Trimble: No. 0

Washington: No. 13

Shaver: No. 21

Nickel: No. 24

North Carolina’s 2022 class was ranked No. 17 in the country.

Trimble was UNC’s highest rated commit at No. 35 overall. Washington was No. 44, Nickel No. 76 and Shaver was No. 143 overall.

The freshmen join a roster that returns almost every signifiant player from its rotation last season, excluding Brady Manek who was out of eligibility.

The Tar Heels finished last season 29-10 and lost in the National Championship game to Kansas. They went 15-5 in the ACC and finished second in the league.
