Plumlee Makes Return Trip to UNC

Last month Mason Plumlee made a trip to North Carolina to take in ‘Late Night with Roy' and on Sunday the talented big man was back in Chapel Hill to watch the Tar Heels' home opener.

"We showed up a little before the game and we watched the shootaround and they showed us around a little bit," Plumlee said. "Afterwards me and my parents met with Coach Williams and spent some time up in their offices."

"It went pretty good," he continued. "[Coach Williams] just said that he wanted to keep coming to watch us. He's been to the school twice, so I guess he has five more times that he can come. He just said he might come watch us at the Chick-fil-A tournament or maybe the Oak Hill game."

Plumlee, who currently holds scholarship offers from Georgetown, Indiana, Iowa, Louisville, Miami, Michigan, Stanford and UCLA, said that the Heels still have yet to offer.

"I definitely enjoyed the game and being there with my family and everything, but I don't' really know what to say until they offer," he said. "It's just hard to like them as much as some other schools, since they haven't offered. I'm still interested though."

This past weekend Roy Williams and UCLA assistant Scott Duncan were present at his second game of the season. Prior to that, Indiana head coach Kelvin Sampson and assistants from Louisville and Wake Forest had made recent trips to watch him workout.

A number of schools have made Plumlee – the 39th ranked prospect in the 2009 class by Scout.com -- an early priority and he mentioned Wake Forest, Michigan, Indiana, Iowa, Georgetown and Stanford as the schools that have recruited him the hardest.

Plumlee's high school season started this past week and his Arden (N.C.) Christ School squad won their two games by a combined 62 points.

"I think I had nine the first game and I was pretty close to a triple-double," he said. "Then I had 20 the second game."

Next up for Plumlee and Christ School is a match up against the Wesleyan School on November 30th.
