Perfect vision: UNC basketball lands first 2020 commit — forward Day’Ron Sharpe

North Carolina basketball gets on the board early in 2020 recruiting with an in-state commitment from Day’Ron Sharpe. A product of Winterville, North Carolina, Sharpe’s a 6-foot-8 power forward that projects into a high-level recruit. Sharpe committed to UNC on Sunday evening — after his second visit to the campus in Chapel Hill.

According to 247 Sports, Shape picked UNC over offers from Florida, NC State, Georgetown and Virginia. His recruitment was led by both Steve Robinson and Roy Williams. The Tar Heels initially offered Sharpe less than two months ago — at the end of April.

In 2017-18 as a sophomore, Sharpe averaged 14.3 points, 9.3 rebounds and 2.6 blocks. Last week, Shape participated in the NBPA Top 100 camp in Charlottesville.
