North Carolina lands commitment from 5-star SF Nassir Little

North Carolina coach Roy Williams padded his already impressive 2018 recruiting class with the addition of five-star small forward prospect Nassir Little on Wednesday night.

Little, a 6-foot-7, 205-pound standout from Orlando, Fla., announced his decision via Twitter:

“I just love coach [Roy] Williams,” Little said of his choice, according to ESPN. “He really cares about the players off the court, which is important. They’re a basketball school, which is something I wanted to be a part of. Coach Roy really knows how to win. I love winning. I really do. And that’s important to me.”

Ranked as the No. 9 overall recruit in his class — and the No. 2 prospect from the state of Florida (both via 247Sports) — Little is considered one of the most explosive players in the nation, possessing close to 40 scholarship offers from top programs across the country.

Tar Heels fans can get an early look at his skill set from his “mixtape” offered below:

Little is the first top-10 recruit UNC has reeled in since Justin Jackson in 2014, and he becomes the third recruit to join the ‘Heels in the 2018 recruiting class — one that now ranks No. 1 in the nation.
