Winslow Enjoys Visit to UNC

North Carolina recently ramped up its interest in 2014 wing Justise Winslow. This past weekend the Tar Heels were able to get the Houston (Tex.) St. John's standout to campus for an unofficial visit.

"I really enjoyed it," Winslow said. "Just the whole atmosphere about it, I really liked it."

While on campus, Winslow spoke with the coaching staff, got a glimpse of their pregame activities and took in their match up with Clemson.

"When I first got there, I met with the coaches and talked to them," Winslow said. "I watched shoot-a-round and met with the academic advisor and then I went to Top of the Hill for lunch."

"I toured the museum there and then I got to go in the locker room before the game to see Coach talk to the guys and hang with the guys," he added. "Then I sat behind the bench for the game."

Winslow also got to spend some one-on-one time with Roy Williams.

"It was good just talking to him and seeing what he's like on a personal level and kind of away from basketball," Winslow said.

Winslow, Scout.com's No. 15 sophomore, said Williams explained his recruiting philosophy when it comes to offering scholarships.

"He talked to me about how he's not the kind of coach to offer players at a young age so he said he's going to wait and see how I develop," he added. "He said they might be one of the last schools to offer me, but he's going to recruit me hard."

"He said I was special and that he's never seen me play, but his assistants told him that I was a lefty that could do a lot of things," Winslow said.

While watching UNC's game, Winslow noticed the fast paced system that is a signature of Williams's teams.

"I really like the up-tempo style they played at," he said. "They always looked to push the ball and played up-tempo."

How did his visit to UNC compare to other trips?

"It was probably one of the better ones I've been on," he said. "I really liked to see a town involved around one team basically."

To go with his trip to UNC, Winslow went to a Texas game on Monday. He will see Texas A&M on Wednesday, then he'll go to Arizona for an unofficial visit on Thursday. Baylor will then have him on campus Saturday and Kansas will get their turn the following Saturday.
