Roy Williams Visits, Offers UNC Scholarship to Garrison Brooks

Tar Heel head coach visited Auburn (Ala.) High on Saturday.

Garrison Brooks has a new player in his recruitment: North Carolina.

The 6-9 senior center heard from UNC assistant coach Hubert Davis at the conclusion of the summer circuit, but the Tar Heels took the big next step on Saturday.

Roy Williams and Davis made a morning visit to Auburn (Ala.) High School to see Brooks and it yielded a scholarship offer afterward from the Carolina head coach during an in-home visit with Brooks and his family.

UNC joins Arizona State, Arkansas, Auburn, Georgia, Mississippi State (where his father is an assistant coach) and Texas A&M as some of the schools involved.

Brooks re-emerged this summer after averaging 18 points and eight rebounds for Team Carroll on the adidas circuit.

"Brooks's rapid progress to close out the July evaluation period attracted a surge of late interest from college coaches," said Inside Carolina lead scout Rob Harrington. "He always has featured the frame and running ability to compete at the high-major level, but now he has showcased a budding offensive game that could lift him to a greater early performance."
