UNC confirmed today that it has received a commitment from an in-state point guard recruit.
Stilman White, a 6-1 point guard from Wilmington's Hoggard High, has signed a National Letter of Intent to play for the Tar Heels. White earned first-team Associated Press all-state honors and scored 1,078 points and had 231 assists in 76 career games.
As a senior, White averaged a career-high 20.5 points and 3.0 assists per game and leaves Hoggard as its alltime leader in made free throws (280) and three-point field goal percentage (.381).
“If you look at our roster for next season, you can see we had a depth issue at point guard," UNC coach Roy Williams said in a statement released today by the university. "Stilman is a youngster who came on strong as his high school career went along. He’s going to be a great team player for us because he has the toughness and the competitiveness I love in a point guard.”
