Carolina's backs off of junior forward


The UNC staff is beginning to identify the true targets for 2003 and it appears as though Akini Adkins didn't make the cut.

The 6-9, 195-pound forward from Tallahassee Leon (Fla.) hasn't received much interest of late from the Tar Heels staff.

"North Carolina was recruiting him really hard, but after they signed (Byron) Sanders and (Damion) Grant, we don't hear from them anymore," said John Adkins, whose family has adopted Akini.
