The most successful Tar Heels squads of the past 15 years have had terrific front court presence, and that commonality persists among those seasons more than anything else.
Those players were paramount to the success of said UNC teams, but I’d argue that a slightly less dynamic guard could still get pretty far with those supporting casts — save for 2009 when an injured Ty Lawson did everything but wear a cape during the Tar Heels’ nail-biting second round game against LSU.
Kessler recently spoke with Rivals’ Dan McDonald to break down his recruitment, and he had this to say of Roy Williams and the Tar Heels:
“UNC is starting to talk to me more since I got the Duke offer,” Kessler said.
Given the importance of a player like Kessler to UNC, it stands to reason that Williams would begin investing more time into him once the Cole Anthony and Keion Brooks recruitments wrap up.
