It isn’t a surprise that schools like UNC are checking in with Huell, as the 6-foot-10, 210-pound power forward performed at a high-level on the summer circuit playing with Team Breakdown. Huell said his goal during the summer was to consistently play with more effort when he was on the court. “I just wanted to play hard in every game and let my appearance be shown every game,” Huell said. “I bring energy, rebounding, defense and whatever you need,” Huell added “Whatever the team needs me to do, I can do.” At his size, Huell is mobile and athletic. He alters shots, races end-to-end and is adept at finishing off plays around the basket. After such a strong summer, Huell was bumped to five-star status and finished at No. 25 in the post-summer 2016 rankings. To go with UNC, Huell has added interest from Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, Louisville, Kansas, Miami, Florida State and Florida. Huell claims scholarship offers from all of those schools except for the Tar Heels. “They were just here last week,” Huell said about Carolina. “Coach Hubert Davis. He was here.” What message did Davis relay to Huell? “How the head coach is slow to offer,” he responded. “He said when he offers you he really wants you there and feels like you should really be there.” UNC’s coaches expressed to Huell that they plan to continue checking in and establishing a relationship with him. “I like them,” Huell said. “They are a very good school. A lot of one-and-dones go there and Michael Jordan went there.” Huell said he hasn’t taken any college visits to date and doesn’t have any scheduled at this time.
