But that isn't going to happen.
"Like I said before, I'm excited," Curry said after hearing that the news of Roy Williams taking over was official. "He's a good coach and he likes to run up and down the court. That's my style. I'm committed to Carolina no matter what and I'm glad he's coming."
The 6-2 1/2, 170-pound Curry is the lone recruit who has already given UNC a verbal pledge from the junior class.
He committed to Matt Doherty and the former UNC staff last June, about six months after receiving a scholarship offer, and has always been a diehard Tar Heels fan.
Now the only question that remains is whether Williams and his assistants honor Curry's commitment, which is expected to happen soon.
