Theo Pinson commits to North Carolina

Roy Williams has now signed three five-star players from the class of 2014 already.

USA TODAY Sports

Roy Williams relieved some of the sting of missing out on Andrew Wiggins by landing another five-star prospect on Wednesday.

Theo Pinson, one of the top players in the class of 2014, announced that he will be a North Carolina Tar Heel during a press conference at his Wesleyan Christian Academy (N.C.) school. The 6'6 wing chose UNC over Indiana, Louisville, Duke and Georgetown.

His rare combination of a forward's length and a guard's skill figures to make Pinson a matchup nightmare at the next level. He's a tremendous passer who can get to the rim at will, and he can guard multiple positions on the other end of the floor. If there is an issue with Pinson's game, it's a jump shot that needs to become a bit more consistent before he gets to Chapel Hill.

Pinson becomes the third five-star player from the class of 2014 to commit to North Carolina already. He joins small forward Justin Jackson and point guard Joel Berry in making up the future of Tar Heel basketball.
