Recruits lined up for Late Night

Friday's "Late Night with Roy Williams" marks the beginning of the basketball season and a great opportunity for the new UNC staff to give recruits a peek into the future of Tar Heel hoops.

Scheduled to be at the Dean Dome on Friday night ...

* Dwight Howard - The nation's top post player and perhaps top player overall. The NBA will come calling, but he's giving college a look.

* J.R. Smith - Super-athletic, high-riser committed to UNC, will enroll next year.

* JamesOn Curry - Sharpshooter from Mebane, N.C. will also enroll next year. Was the first 2004 commitment for the Heels.

* Marcus Ginyard - Still two years from being a Tar Heel, but his versatility and athleticism will be welcomed in Chapel Hill in 2005.

* In-state Youngsters - A number of underclassmen from N.C. will be in attendance and will be names to watch down the road.
