The 2008 recruiting period is not over, and yesterday UNC signed Justin Watt (SG, 6’5″) out of Durham (reported by Scout.com). Watt is a four-year player who will probably help shore up the deficit left by Wayne Ellington.
Watts is listed as a forward by most sites, but his ballhandling is strong and he can slash to the basket. I would assume that would make him more of a Marcus Ginyard type player than an Ellington player, but I have not seen enough of him to really make that assessment. Time to tap my buddy’s player database again, I think.
