Hoops Recruiting Notebook

North Carolina will host a number of recruits this weekend. Who is headed to their campus? Dwayne Morgan added a college visit to his schedule. Plus Shane Hall is up to eight scholarship offers.

UNC has monster weekend

North Carolina has an impressive list of visitors headed to their game on Saturday night against archrival Duke.

Scout.com's No. 1 player – Andrew Wiggins – is the biggest name headed to Chapel Hill. Wiggins has already taken official visits to Florida State, Kentucky and Kansas. The UNC trip is his last scheduled visit.

UNC will also have their 2013 recruits – Kennedy Meeks, Nate Britt and Isaiah Hicks – in attendance.

A number of underclassmen are also attending the game. Justin Jackson, who committed to the Tar Heels following a visit last week, will make a return trip. Plus he'll be flanked by 2014 wing prospects Rashad Vaughn and Theo Pinson.

2015 recruit Luke Kennard and 2016 standout Harry Giles will also be at the game.

Morgan to take one more visit

Dwayne Morgan is going to take at least one more trip before coming up with his college choice.

Morgan announced earlier this week that he would make his college intentions known in early April.

Morgan took a visit to Maryland this past weekend for their game against North Carolina. According to his travel team coach – Dwayne Wise – Morgan will take his final visit this weekend to Georgetown.

While Seton Hall, South Florida and others are still being listed, Morgan appears to be favoring UNLV, Maryland and Georgetown.

Although a visit wasn't worked out with Arizona, Sean Miller did put a phone call into Morgan on Thursday. Arizona is expected to send an assistant coach to see him practice this weekend.

Morgan, a five-star combo forward, visited UNLV in early February.

Hall has eight offers, took Tennessee visit

Shane Hall saved one of his best performances of the high school season for the Kentucky boy's Sweet 16.

Although his team fell to Louisville (Ky.) Ballard, Hall finished with 28 points on 10-for-11 shooting and also snagged eight rebounds.

Hall, a 6-foot-8 power forward, was visibly hampered by an ankle injury. Despite not having his normal lift, Hall finished well around the rim, dropped in a right jump hook and hit a mid-range jump shot.

On the recruiting front, Hall now has eight scholarship offers – Tennessee, Butler, UAB, Northern Kentucky, Miami-Ohio, Indiana State, Morehead State and Wright State.

Hall visited Tennessee in mid-February for their game against Kentucky.

"That was a lot of fun," Hall's father – Brad – told Scout.com. "Anytime you get to go to a game like that it's fun. We got to go back to the locker room and Shane got to go back with the players and talk to the coaches after the game."

Although he doesn't have any other visits scheduled, the elder Hall said Shane intends to take a few more visits.

"We are going to, but we don't have any idea yet when or who," he said.

Hall is currently rated as a four-star recruit and is ranked No. 97 overall in the 2014 class.
