Chol Visits Chapel Hill

Roy Williams and his staff hosted Angelo Chol over the weekend for his third of five official visits.

Chol arrived for his visits Friday afternoon and by the time he returned to California on Sunday the 6-foot-9, 220-pound senior power forward from San Diego (Calif.) Hoover had the opportunity to spend plenty of time with the coaching staff and team.

"The first day I had dinner with the coaches," Chol said. "Then the next day I had breakfast with coach [Roy] Williams at his house. Then I went to watch them practice on Saturday and that went well."

"I hung out with the guys and I got to see the Carolina museum," he added. "It was cool to get educated on the basketball stuff. We went bowling too."

How did Top 50 prospect in the 2011 class match up at the bowling alley?

"Not well," he responded. "Harrison [Barnes] was killing everybody."

Chol said he especially enjoyed hanging out with North Carolina's current starting power forward – John Henson – who served as his host on the visit.

"The first night I got there I was mostly hanging out with the players," Chol told InsideCarolina.com. "We all hung out. They were pretty cool. John is a pretty cool dude."

During the visit Chol sat down with Roy Williams and went over their system and how Chol could possibly fit in.

"It went pretty well," he said. "He showed me how they would use me if I were to go there. He showed me clips of former players and plays they ran and their post players. I also was at the game so I got to see how they work with their big men."

"They do feed the big men there," Chol added. "They do a lot of in and out stuff, that's what I noticed."

Williams also talked to Chol about possible playing time.

"He told me that he if I wanted to go there that I would get some playing time and that they would help me get better and hopefully we would win a national championship and all that stuff," Chol said.

"UNC has John and Tyler Zeller as their big men," he said. "Justin Knox is a senior. They were telling me that if John decided to go pro I would get a chance to start [right away]."

While at Carolina's game on Sunday, Chol said he studied how they use their big men and their style of play.

"I just like how they work with their big man," Chol said. "It wasn't all guards and all guard play. They feed their big man. They give them the ball. That's what I noticed."

Chol, who has also visited Alabama and Kansas, said the trip went well. He has a pair of visits left. He'll go to Arizona in late January and then Washington in mid-February.

"I enjoyed it and I liked the trip," he said of Chapel Hill. I wouldn't have a problem going there. It was a good trip."

The plan is for Chol to make his college choice shortly following his visit to Washington. He's set to announce his pick on February 17th.

"I guess I'll just finish out these next two visits and see how they go," he added. "It was a good trip, but I still have some other trips."

"I'm enjoying it," he added about the whole process. "It's kind of hard to decide."
