Pinson to North Carolina
Theo Pinson, the No. 15 ranked player in the Class of 2014, is headed to North Carolina. Today the 6-foot-5 shooting guard committed to the Tar Heels in front of his team, family and friends at Wesleyan Christian High School in High Point, North Carolina.
Pinson chose North Carolina over four other finalists - Indiana, Duke, Georgetown and Louisville.
While Pinson made his only official visit to Indiana this February, he took a series of unofficial trips to the nearby North Carolina campus over the years.
He becomes Roy Williams' third verbal from the Class of 2014, joining 6-foot-7, 180-pound forward Justin Jackson, the No. 14 ranked prospect, and 6-foot-1 point guard Joel Berry, the No. 21 overall prospect.
It has been a solid spring for Pinson as he's led his CP3 All-Stars team in scoring and the Chris Paul sponsored team stands in first place in the 10-team Nike EYBL Divison B with a 11-2 record.
In late February Pinson helped lead Wesleyan Christian to its first ever North Carolina Independent Schools Athletic Association (NCISAA) 3-A state championship. Wesleyan Christian finished with a 23-5 record and along with Greensboro Day's Reggie Dillard was named Co-Player of the Year in 3-A.
