Doherty travels to Mississippi

Matt Doherty is flying to Gulfport, Miss. on Friday evening.

The Tar Heel head coach will be taking a closer look at Byron Sanders, a senior power forward at Harrison Central HS, according to IC's Zeke Martins.

The UNC staff has been watching Sanders, and been in frequent contact, for some time now, but the arrival of Doherty could mean the crossroads in Sanders' recruitment by the Heels.

We asked expert Dave Telep his thoughts on Sanders.

"When I saw him, I liked him. He's a good player," Telep said of the post player who checked in at 6-8 and 215 pounds at the July Nike Camp. "Physically, he's a good looking specimen. In terms of what Carolina is looking to do with their scholarships in the spring, he fits. I know Mississippi would have offered had they had room."
