Heels pursuing Linas Kleiza?

According to a report in this morning's <i>Durham Herald-Sun</i>, the new North Carolina coaching staff is trying to get involved with senior big man Linas Kleiza, a 6-8, 245-pound bruiser from Lithuania.

The mature, powerful big man reportedly is trying to decide between Missouri and Florida State. However, there are rumblings in recruiting circles that UNC coach Roy Williams is trying to get involved with Kleiza, rather than pursue New Jersey big man Darryl Watkins. (link)

Roy Williams was interested in Kleiza while he was at Kansas.
