With commitments from 5-star center Armando Bacot and 3-star guard Jeremiah Francis, North Carolina already has the base for a strong 2019 recruiting class. However, one of UNC’s top targets — 5-star power forward Matthew Hurt — is set to take an official visit to Chapel Hill this weekend, too.

The relationship between Roy Williams and Hurt extends back nearly three years, as Inside Carolina notes. UNC offered Hurt a scholarship back during the summer of 2016; the 6-foot-9 power forward, a top-10 prospect in the 2019 class, has visited Chapel Hill before — 2015 and the fall of 2017.
A month after this trip to UNC, Hurt will take his official visit to Duke — the weekend of Jan. 19. That’s the weekend Virginia will be in Durham to take on Duke.
