"We're excited for the opportunity to work with Jabari over the next two years," Peck said. "He's an ideal fit for our program. We are confidant that he will have a big impact and help us sustain the level of success that we have reached. His skill, size, athleticism, and moreover his demeanor lend itself to thriving in our system."

James McAdoo knew it was coming.

"It was definitely something that I sort of knew was coming and was anticipating," McAdoo told Scout.com.. "It's an honor because they don't offer everyone."

The 6-foot-8, 215-pound big man is down to nine schools -- North Carolina, Florida, Duke, Virginia, UCLA, Texas, Georgetown, Syracuse and Kentucky. He's hoping to visit Syracuse and Duke in the near future.
