Felton Firms Up UNC Commitment

Jalek Felton has firmed up his commitment to Roy Williams and the Tar Heels.

Roy Williams and Jalek Felton had their long-awaited conversation.

The goal for Williams and his staff? Provide more clarity on North Carolina’s NCAA issues that caused Felton to waver on his UNC commitment.

Evidently, the 2017 guard and nephew of former Carolina star Raymond Felton, liked what he heard.

According to multiple sources, Felton recommitted to UNC during their conversation.

“He was just being a young boy, seeing all the guys going to other schools and taking visits,” his grandfather, Raymond Felton Sr., said. “He knows he wants to go back to them. He’s 100 percent committed to Carolina.”

“When they talked he (Williams) just wanted a full commitment,” Felton Sr. continued. “They’re going to have another conversation. He’s not going to take any visits.”

A frequent visitor to Chapel Hill for games and workouts, Felton made his initial commitment to UNC in December of last year, but was in contact with Kentucky and South Carolina this summer.

Felton has returned to Mullins (S.C.) High School for his junior season, after averaging 28.7 points and 6.4 assists in leading the school into the postseason.

He is ranked the No. 4 point guard in the 2017 class by Scout.com and the No. 22 prospect overall.
