The UNC head coach, who had watched Alkins lead his NY Rens team to the adidas Uprising title last week, offered the 6-foot-4 wing from Middle Village (N.Y.) Christ The King (who will attend a prep school this fall) a scholarship.
Alkins was one of the leading scorers on the adidas circuit this year, posting 23.8 points per game, including 34 points in Friday's championship game against the Atlanta Celtics.
"Alkins is a classical Northeastern guard, one who loves to physically punish defenders and then serve them seconds. He's a prolific scorer who excels in transition when he can accumulate a head of steam, yet he also possesses impressive athleticism. He's a superb rebounder for a guard and a top-notch defender, underscoring his rugged style."
