Less than a month after extending a scholarship offer, North Carolina basketball added a commitment from Dontrez Styles. A 4-star wing from talent-rich Kinston, N.C., Styles is the first commit in North Carolina’s 2021 recruiting class. Styles is also the first No. 1 in-state prospect to commit to the Tar Heels since Theo Pinson, way back in the 2014 class.
Dontrez Styles is the first prospect ranked No. 1 in the state of North Carolina to commit to North Carolina since Theo Pinson in 2014.
He’s the first to stay in-state at all since Lavar Batts in 2017.
