McAdoo Checks Out Late Night

James McAdoo, a sophomore at Norfolk (Va.) Christian, took his second unofficial visit to North Carolina this past weekend for the Tar Heels' "Late Night With Roy" festivities.

Joining a handful of underclassmen and all of North Carolina's 2009 and 2010 commitments, McAdoo hung out in the Dean Dome during the event Friday evening and came away raving about the experience.

"It was awesome," McAdoo said. "I had never been to something like that so of course I thought it was crazy. I really liked it. It just showed that all the guys could go out there and have fun."

"I loved it," he continued. "But then again I wouldn't say that after I've seen it that I want to go there. It gives me something that I can compare to. I've seen what they have to offer."

But McAdoo's visit to North Carolina didn't end Friday night The 6-foot-8, 205-pound Class of 2011 power forward took in one of Roy Williams' practices on Saturday morning.

"I got to see them practice, which is kind of cool and I got to see the behind the scenes," McAdoo said. "I liked how they practice and it was a good practice."

With so many prospects on campus, McAdoo, who doesn't yet have a scholarship offer from UNC, said he didn't get to spend a ton of time talking with their coaching staff, but they did inform him that they were interested.

"They were just checking in on me and let me know that they are interested and told me I need to stay focused on school and working on my game," the Top 10 prospect said.

McAdoo currently holds scholarship offers from Florida, UCLA and Wake Forest. Duke is also involved and he took a trip to Durham following his visit to UNC.

With all of the early recruiting attention, McAdoo has spent a lot of time thinking about the recruiting process, and has even thought about the possibility of making an early commitment.

"I've thought about it, but then again I haven't been to all of these schools that are recruiting me," McAdoo said. "I'm not going to commit to one school if I haven't given these other schools a chance and haven't been down there to talk to the coaches and see the school. I'm just going to out there and soak all the knowledge up and see how they compare."

McAdoo's next trip will be to Gainesville (Fla.) for an unofficial visit to the University of Florida in mid-November.
