No big surprises for Roy Williams yesterday as both of UNC's committed players for the class of 2013 - five-star power forward Isaiah Hicks of Oxford Webb and four-star point guard Nate Britt of Oak Hill (Va.) Academy - signed their letters of intent.
Hicks (6-8, 210) is ranked as the #8 PF and #20 player overall in the class. He played in only 12 games for Oxford Webb last year after transferring from a Raleigh private school, but averaged 17 points, 15 rebounds and six blocks. He remains the top-rated prospect in North Carolina.
Britt, who is 6-1, 165 pounds, is listed as the #13 PG in his class and #70 overall recruit by Scout.com. He averaged 15.8 points as a junior for Gonzaga, a private school in Washington D.C., before transferring to Oak Hill for his senior year.
UNC currently has the 14-ranked class nationally but the big question marks remain West Charlotte center Kennedy Meeks (ranked #10 overall) who has not yet decided between North Carolina and Georgetown, and the #1-rated recruit in the class, Andrew Wiggins of Huntington WVa, who still has UNC on his list - though they are not thought to be the leader contender.
