Theo Pinson, one of the top high school basketball players in the nation and one of the core members of the Wesleyan Trojan team, that won this past season’s 2013 NCISAA 3-A State Championship in a victory over the Greensboro Day School, yes that Theo Pinson, he has committed today to play his college basketball at the University of North Carolina, in Chapel Hill….

JaQuel Richmond, Trey Chapman, Theo Pinson, Donovan Gilmore and the man-beast Harry Giles and at one time, Montay Brandon have all made their names and their games bigger and better, under the guidance of Coach Keith Gatlin at the Wesleyan Acadmey, in High Point…

I remember watching Theo back when he was playing with the Southeast Guilford Middle School Falcons and then it was on to the Oak Ridge Military Academy for a short stay with ORMA and Coach K and then he was on his way over to Wesleyan and things seem to have gone well there, with the exception of a few injuries and he has found a nice balance in his game, under the watchful eye of Coach Gatlin and now on to Chapel Hill for Theo and possible spot in the starting lineup for the North Carolina Tar Heels…
(Those summer basketball travel ventures didn’t hurt Theo’s game either.)

Not a bad road/roads to take and the payoff in the end should be a good one….The overall grand scheme of things appears to be taking a turn toward the top….

This has been one of the top stories at today’s News and Record(CLICK HERE see all and a good report) and I will try and get you a few more links on this ASAP….Just keep in mind, we knew and saw this kid long before many others you will see and hear from today did…I was on the scene at the Hairston Middle School, back when Theo was taking half-court shots in pre-game warmups, prior to the game with Southeast Middle and Hairston….Been there and seen it over the years…..

*****Just a note:Harry Giles could become the biggest high school basketball recruit to ever come through the Triad….Could end up topping Danny Manning and he left town after his junior year at Page. Giles is the ‘Man-Beast’……*****
