Chol Sets UNC Official Visit

Early in the spring Angelo Chol wasn't considered a North Carolina target. Fast forward a few months and the Heels are now in the thick of things for the San Diego (Calif.) Hoover standout.

North Carolina joins Kansas, Arizona, Washington and Alabama to make up Chol's list of five schools. According to Hoover head coach Ollie Goulston the Heels jumped in the picture after losing a few big men during the off-season.

"Originally they had backed off because they didn't think they'd have a scholarship and then the Wear twins left and some other things happened and Ed Davis declared -- they needed post guys," he said.

"They asked to get back in," Goulston added. "They liked him. They watched him this summer. They asked and Angelo thought about it and took a look at it and decided it would be a good situation."

Chol, a 6-foot-9, 210-pound post prospect, has already officially visited Alabama. He's set to go to Kansas on October 15th, North Carolina the weekend of January 2nd, Arizona on January 29th and Washington February 12th.

Roy Williams has taken trips to San Diego to see Chol play during an open gym on two different occasions. Then this past week he conducted an in-home visit with Chol. According to Goulston the visit was a success.

"It went very well," he said. "Coach Williams did a very good job and it was impressive so he decided to take a visit to them."

"He's definitely interested in them," he added. "It's North Carolina basketball and it's obviously a serious thing."

Considering Chol's visit schedule, he's clearing planning to sign during the spring period.

"I think he feels he has all good choices and they are all good head coaches and all good styles of play for him," Goulston said. "They do all bring something a little bit different to the table so I think he's just going to go through the process and analyze it and come up with what is the best fit for him."
