Diamond DeShields and Stephanie Mavunga commit to UNC!!! 


http://espn.go.com/high-school...-all-choose-unc

Great day for Sylvia Hatchell and UNC getting verbal commitments from DeShields, Mavunga, and Jessica Washington today. This is a great day for UNC and the ACC will once again be a big three with UNC, Duke, and Maryland.

I'm seeing tweets that Allisha Gray may commit to UNC today too...I wonder if Mercedes Russell will be next to UNC because she's good friends with Stephanie Mavunga and they have tweeted about playing together in college.

CONGRATS to UNC and I can't hate. Would be nice to see Diamond at UCONN, but oh well.

Maryland wasn't a real player for DD, but I'm glad she'll be in the ACC. UNC will be strong once again and the ACC will be a better conference because of it. It should be a lot of fun on Tobacco Road for the next 4-5 years.

It looks like we both lost out on Stephanie. Hatchell is loading up a dynasty program right now.

First Diamond DeShields to UNC and now Allisha Gray...Both young ladies are from Georgia and it's sad the best talent is leaving the state again. Andy Landers needs to step his game up in recruiting and in hiring lock down assistant coaches who can recruit!!!

It's all about recruiting!!!

Allisha Gray to UNC 


I was hoping we could land her at UK, but probably lost ground on her with Elzy left our staff. UNC is loading up with a big class for 2013.

It's nice to see that UNC will be a NCAA title contender again on WBB. I hope we can get a series started with the Lady Tarheels.

I guess it's unofficial that Allisha Gray will join UNC, but if UNC lands #1 Mercedes Russell and #8 Allisha Gray to go along with Diamond, Stephanie, and Jessica...Watch out women's college basketball world. This could get very interesting.

Well see how this all plays out.

I would have been nervous of DeShields committed to Uconn.

Who are Uconn's top prospects for 2013? I know you're 2012 class was big and I'm sure you'll sign a few good ones in 2013 and 2014.

Karlie Samuelson right now, but I know more will arise. Don't sleep on Uconn.

Maryland is loaded for the new few years anyway and will be fine. It will be nice to see UNC get back into the WBB elite discussion. We dominated them in our series of late and that's why Hatchell stopped it...UNC wasn't a challenge anymore.

Hatchell is doing a great job. Some think Stephanie is not fully developed and will transfer from UNC, but we'll see.

This does suck for Landers. He needs to hire a big time assistant who can lure top talent to UGA. You guys have a nice squad for next season, but you have to build for the future too.

Ditto...Elzy to Tennessee hurt your chances, but I couldn't see Gray at UK anyway.

It is good for the ACC and women's basketball. If they land Gray and Russell, UNC and Hatchell will really be rolling. I think their 2013 can win at least one national title if they can gel and not have any personality issues.

I'm reading that Russell might be pressured into committing to UNC. If her heart is not there, she shouldn't go there. Go where your heart desires Mercedes.

Btw! 


Diamond DeShields is the second recruit in the last two years to pick North Carolina over Connecticut. Dang it.

Xylina McDaniel did it last year.

Notre Dame and North Carolina have solid 2013 classes right now. It's nice to see UNC land some star studded ladies.

Connecticut will still get their share of recruits, but it's nice to see top players spread out or not always go to Uconn and Tennessee year after year after year.

Maybe if we had Caldwell long enough, we could have DeShields at LSU. Oh well.

I hope these young ladies are women of their word and stuck with their (verbal) commitments. Too many young kids go back and forth and decommit, recommit, etc. But anyway, good day for UNC and if these ladies make it on campus, they will surge UNC back into the national title picture.

I hope UCLA can get Diamond's former wingwomen Kaela Davis. We're still in the running for her services.

Thanks for the nice comments and what a great day in Chapel Hill. I know this is recruiting buzz and it will be interesting to see what happens at the U17 tryouts. I hope Diamond can whisper UNC to Mercedes all throughout the tryouts. 

It seems we have landed Gray unofficially, but no word just yet.

It would be ironic if Kaela ended up at Maryland or Duke...Kaela at Maryland or Duke and Diamond at UNC....they would have to play each other at least 2-3 times a year. That would make for good TV and storylines.

Congrats to UNC. I was hoping Mavunga will come out west to play for Tara.

HG reporting that DeShields organized the "package deal", and three of them committed via conference call to Hatchell. 

For DeShields, my guess is that she wanted a program where she could start and star right away. She probably didn't see that probability at UConn.

I suspect a lot of the credit for this coup belongs to Trisha Stafford-Odom, the itinerant super recruiter. Kaleena Lewis told me she "loved" TSO when she was recruiting her at Duke, even after KMo's heart was set on UConn. .
