from Stan “The Man” Olson at the Charlotte Observer on-line and Click Here for all the details, we have this piece of basketball news, as PJ Hairston of Dudley will have a teammate at UNC, who’s uncle went to Smith HS……Here’s the scoop and the soup:
While celebrating the 2009 NCAA championship over the holiday weekend, North Carolina secured a commitment from a player who could keep the Tar Heels in contention for future titles.
James McAdoo, a 6-foot-8, 210-pound junior forward from Norfolk (Va.) Christian School with strong basketball tradition and a tie to North Carolina in his family, has committed to the Tar Heels. Scout.com ranks McAdoo as the No. 2 player in his class.
McAdooâ€™s uncle, Bob McAdoo(Greensboro Smith High School), was a second-team Associated Pressâ€™ All-American at North Carolina in 1971-72, when he averaged 19.5 points and 10.1 rebounds and led the Tar Heels to the Final Four. Jamesâ€™ parents, Ronnie and Janet McAdoo, played basketball at Old Dominion.
Jamesâ€™ sister, Kelsey, is a junior who plays for the Charlotte 49ers. Ronnie McAdoo, whoâ€™s originally from Mebane, said North Carolina, Duke and Virginia were the final schools James considered.
â€œJames likes the up-and-down pace, the way Coach (Roy) Williams plays,â€ Ronnie said.
McAdoo averaged 25 points and 12 rebounds last season.
