After bringing Top-5 recruit ​Nassir Little to Chapel Hill, Roy Williams and ​North Carolina have failed to continue improving him as a player. Little is averaging just 9.9 points per game and has lost his starting spot. Brooklyn Nets forward Jared Dudley claims that Little's lack of development is one of the reasons some top recruits aren't going to UNC.

CFL leading receiver says he's signed with Buffalo Bills

CFL leading receiver says he's signed with Buffalo Bills Receiver D'haquille ''Duke'' Williams says he has signed with the Buffalo Bills a season after leading the Canadian Football League with 1,579 yards receiving. Williams on Monday posted a message on his Instagram account saying he was happy to be a part of the Bills' family, accompanied by a photo of him signing a contract. TSN.ca on Sunday first reported Williams' signing. The Bills have not announced the move. The 25-year-old Williams spent the past two seasons with Edmonton before being released by the Eskimos last week to pursue his NFL opportunities.

UNC has eight remaining targets for the class of 2019. Where did they land in the most recent recruiting rankings? By the time he gets to UNC he’ll have missed approximately 18 months of action due to two knee surgeries. As long as he can get healthy, Francis may turn out to be the steal

University of North Carolina Tar Heels head coach Roy Williams is back on the recruiting trail and will visit a very important recruit in the 2019 class. Williams has already been able to land a commitment from point guard Jeremiah Francis, a top 50 recruit in the class and has interest in

​​Does he have a point? Kind of.

UNC might be one of the more successful programs, but the best one-and-done players in the country haven't been headed to Chapel Hill of late. Most of those championship teams are unheralded recruits Williams has developed into stars. While that stands as a testament to Williams' ability to coach up players, the lack of one-and-dones going pro or superstars in the pro ranks raise call those development skills into question.

Little, for example, is a freak athlete but struggles with running an offense and some of the finer details that come with playing at the college level. The fact that Williams is not only incapable of teaching him but appears to be damaging his pro prospects isn't going unnoticed on the recruiting trail.

Williams lured top -10 recruit Marvin Williams across the country in 2004; grabbed another, Tyler Hansbrough, from Missouri in 2005; then put together a star-studded class in 2006 that included a trio of top -10 guys -- Brandan Wright, Ty Lawson and Wayne Ellington.

At UNC , Williams coaches in the shadow of the late Dean Smith. Tar Heels fans and media often have called Williams ’ strategic and personnel moves into “We love each other,” said UNC All-American forward Brice Johnson. “We don’ t really care who gets the credit.” Villanova has perimeter scorers

​Little came into this season as a Top-3 pick, and is now in danger of falling out of the lottery. Fellow 5-star recruits are certainly taking that into consideration when it comes time to pick a school.

Dudley: UNC doesn't get top recruits due to Williams' strategy

Tennessee is College Basketball's Model for Post One-and-Done Era.
​On Monday, the AP Top 25 announced a new king of the college basketball world. The ​Tennessee Volunteers climbed to the top spot after undefeated teams Virginia and Michigan suffered key losses on Saturday. This is the first time the Volunteers have reached the ​No. 1 ranking in the poll since the 2007-08 season. So how have they gotten here? Well, they've followed a nontraditional path for college basketball powerhouse programs, and it's paying off huge dividends. Every team in the top ten of the AP poll has at least two players on its roster that were ranked in the top 100 as prospects. Except Tennessee. Tennessee has zero.
