Tar Heels Sign Three to Men's Basketball LOI's

CHAPEL HILL --- The University of North Carolina has signed three men's basketball student-athletes to National Letters of Intent, head coach Matt Doherty announced Monday.

The three high school standouts include Raymond Felton, a 6-1 point guard from Latta High School in Latta, S.C.; Sean May, a 6-9 power forward from Bloomington North High School in Bloomington, Ind.; and Rashad McCants, a 6-4 swing man from Asheville, N.C. McCants is currently enrolled at New Hampton Prep in New Hampshire. McCants attended Erwin High School before moving to New Hampshire.

"We are extremely proud to introduce this recruiting class to the Carolina Basketball family," says Doherty. "I believe these young men will help maintain the level of excellence established here by Coach Smith and Coach Guthridge. Raymond, Sean and Rashad are not just three of the top players in the country at their respective positions, they are also first-class individuals. They will represent our basketball program and University with a great deal of class. My staff and I look forward to coaching them beginning next season."
