D’Marco Dunn commits, UNC basketball adds 2nd 4-star to 2021 class

D’Marco Dunn will head to North Carolina.

247 Sports ranks the 6-foot-4 Dunn as the No. 19 shooting guard in the 2021 recruiting class and one of the top three players in the state of North Carolina. The lack of an AAU season Hurt done in the service’s overall rankings. This is still a substantial addition for North Carolina.

Dunn, a 4-star shooting guard from Fayetteville (NC) Westover, committed to UNC over a host of power programs: Louisville, Arizona, Texas, Clemson, Georgia and Vanderbilt.

In the end, though, Roy Williams and the Heels won out over Vanderbilt and former Tar Heel forward Jerry Stackhouse, now in his second season as the program’s head coach.

The 6-foot-4, 180-pound Dunn becomes the second commit in North Carolina’s 2021 recruiting class; back in April, 4-star forward Dontrez Styles, from Kinston, committed to UNC over NC State, Clemson, Maryland and Pittsburgh.

Dunn and Styles are two solid additions; however, the Tar Heels have been unable to land a signature recruit to headline the class. For instance: two weeks ago, 5-star forward Harrison Ingram picked Stanford over UNC — and a host of other programs.

North Carolina is still technically in the mix for 5-star phenom Patrick Baldwin Jr., but his recruitment will come down to Duke and Milwaukee, where his father coaches. The Blue Devils are considered the strong favorites.

UNC will still work to land Hunter Sallis, another 4-star wing in the 2021 recruiting class, too. North Carolina offered Sallis several months ago; he plans to commit in the spring.
