Midnight with Matt 2001 to host recruits

UNC's Midnight Madness, termed "Midnight with Matt" last year, is still six weeks away -- but it is shaping into a huge night for Tar Heel recruiting.

Last October, fans packed Carmichael Auditorium for a huge celebration ushering in the new season and the Doherty Era. Jawad Williams, who had already committed to Carolina, and then rising junior recruit Shavlik Randolph both sat courtisde.

This year, Randolph will be back, this time on his official visit to Chapel Hill.

But he probably won't be the only one.

IC has learned that NYC center target Jason Fraser may also attend the event. He had tentatively scheduled his Chapel Hill official trip for Oct. 6, but that could now be moved to the following weekend in order to join Randolph for the midnight festivities.

And word is the Tar Heel floor general of the future might be in town as well.
