Seventh Woods Visiting UNC

Seventh Woods will be on UNC's campus this weekend for his official visit.

No guard in the senior class has received more attention from North Carolina than Seventh Woods.

UNC head coach Roy Williams has taken multiple trips to Columbia to meet with Woods and his family. He's taken multiple trips to watch Woods in open gyms at Hammond School. He's taken multiple trips around the country to watch Woods play with both his high school and AAU teams.

Woods's official visit to Carolina - which is sandwiched between official trips to Georgetown (Sept. 11) and South Carolina (Oct. 9), his other two finalists - begins early Friday afternoon. It's among the last opportunities for Williams and his staff to show Woods, and his parents Louis and Monica, why they believe he fits best in Chapel Hill.

The speed, athleticism and defensive prowess Woods, a 6-2 guard, possesses meshes well with Williams and UNC's offensive and defensive philosophies. His attributes and personality are the reasons UNC has been recruiting him for almost four years.

Dating back to the spring of his eighth grade season, Woods has taken at least one unofficial visit to Carolina each year.

Almost two years ago, he was offered before the start of his sophomore season. Only Harry Giles and Duke commit Jayson Tatum received offers in the class of 2016 before Woods.

With the impending college decision of 2016 wing Brandon Robinson on Monday, the next three days loom large for the future of Carolina basketball. Woods is ranked the No. 34 overall player in the senior class.
