Five-star guard praises Tar Heels

One of UNC basketball’s top recruiting targets in the Class of 2024 is praising the Tar Heels.

As Hubert Davis and the North Carolina Tar Heels continue to work on their 2023 recruiting class, they are also considering the class of 2024 and beyond.

They have already extended scholarship offers to a pair of talented juniors, one of whom is Cam Scott from Lexington High School. A five-star prospect by multiple scouting points, Scott is one of the most talented backcourt players of 2024, ranked among the top 30 prospects in the nation by most scouting points.

Scott already holds offers from a number of Division I programs, including Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Texas Tech, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest. More recently, it was Tennessee and North Carolina that reached out and made offers to Scott, making him one of the most popular and coveted basketball players in the country.

Scott recently broke down his recruiting with On3Sports, talking about all the major players and his relationship to them, as well as where he is currently in the recruiting process. He praised the Tar Heels, noting that having a family environment in college is a big selling point for him.

“The blue everywhere when I went up there was sticking out; it was pretty unique,” ​​Scott said. “Walking into the stadium and feeling the energy, knowing you’ll get it every night, every game. They all play for each other, and they all play together. Family is a big thing for me. playing in a team that supports you is important to me.

A 6-foot-5, 165-pound shooter from Lexington, South Carolina, Scott is ranked 26th according to the 247Sports Composite. He is eighth among players in his position and No. 1 in the state of South Carolina. Scott is ranked even higher in the Top 247 at No. 22 and he is 21st overall on the ESPN100.
