Hubert Returns From UNC Closer To Decision

Desmond Hubert took his final official visit this past weekend and now he's closing in on announcing his college decision.

Hubert, one of the top unsigned post prospects in the senior class, returned from his visit to North Carolina on Sunday morning. The 6-foot-9 big man said he's close to making his college choice.

"Sometime this week I'm hoping," Hubert said when asked when he might announce.

"It helped a lot," the New Egypt (N.J.) High star said of the visit. "I'm down to them and Maryland and I already had an official to Maryland and this really gives me something to compare them [too]."

Hubert said one of the most valuable aspects of the visit was the interaction with members of the Tar Heel program.

"I got to spend a lot of time with Coach Williams and the players," he said. "I also got a tour of campus and got to see the academic side of UNC."

"It's a great school," Hubert added about UNC. "They obviously have a great program and the players and coaching staff are both great."

What sticks out about his final two schools?

"UNC really has everything. The chance to win a national championship is also very appealing. With Maryland it's close to home and the chance to play right away is also very high there."
