"I think Brandan is a youngster that we identified early as one that we really liked. I made four trips to Nashville myself over the past 18 months.
"I love him and everything about him. He has great character, great ability and is a great kid. I think he's going to be a young man that is going to make Tar Heel fans happy for a long, long time."
"I fully expect great things from him. I'm ecstatic. I am just as happy as a coach can possibly be. I have great expectations of coaching him and working with him, not what he has to do."
From the City Paper --
"There's no question that it's one of the best on paper right now. Brandan is a youngster with a tremendous amount of upside who can run the floor and rebound the ball at the rim and we think he'll get better at each level. More importantly, he's a recruit with great character."
