Heels evaluate two post players in La.

The North Carolina coaching staff traveled to Louisiana this week to check out two junior post players -- Paul Millsap and Warren Scott.


Paul Millsap
Paul Millsap, who recently shined at the Boo Williams Invitational, stands at 6-8, 220-pounds. He averaged 24.4 points last season for Grambling (La.) High, and set a state tournament record with 25 rebounds in one contest.

"Like any intriguing big man prospect, Milsapp had good hands, ran the floor, was active in the paint and put some good point totals on the board," IC's Clint Jackson said, having watched Millsap earlier this month. "That, in addition to a pretty nice strong physique and you just know some high major coaches are going to do some sniffing around in Louisiana. And they're not just sniffing the jambalaya."

A host of SEC schools, among others, are already in hot pursuit.

Warren Scott
Warren Scott mentioned two months ago that he liked North Carolina, but had yet to hear from the Tar Heels.

According to Dave Telep, of TheInsidersHoops, the Carolina staff watched Scott on Tuesday.

The 6-8 post player averaged a double-double the past two seasons at New Orleans (La.) Abramson and shined at last winter's City of Palms Classic.

"Scott likes to play inside-out; he can get things done inside, but he also wields a high-arching jump shot with range to the three-point line," wrote Rob Harrington of, Prep Stars, at the event. "[He] got the better of Chris Taft and put big numbers in every game but one, even if he wasn't spectacular."

Telep reports Tulane, Oklahoma, Mississippi, California, Memphis, Houston and Florida State have made recent visits to see Scott.
