The Monday addition of Rivals top 100 shooting guard Kerwin Walton will likely round out the Tar Heels 2020 recruiting class. As it stands, the highly touted and talented group consists of three five stars and three four stars, arguably North Carolina's most talented class since 2006.
After securing the commitment, coach Roy Williams and the Tar Heels immediately turned their full attention to the 2021 class, as they extended a scholarship offer to Hunter Sallis, a 6-foot-4, 165-pound combo guard from Millard North high school in Omaha, Nebraska. 247Sports has Sallis listed as a 4-star, top 30 prospect, and the number one prospect in the state of Nebraska.
Sallis possesses a high level of athleticism coupled with the ability to shoot the three, score off the dribble, knock down mid range jumpers, drive and dish, and finish above the rim. Millard North’s head coach, Tim Cannon, describes Sallis as a consistent scorer, great finisher, and an unbeliever dunker who is most concerned about his team winning. If Sallis continues to grow he has the potential to be a prospect very similar to what Brandon Ingram was coming out of Kinston High School.
In addition to the Tar Heels, Sallis currently holds offers from more than 20 schools, including the likes of Kansas, Gonzaga, Louisville, UCLA, Oregon, Tennessee, Ohio State, and the two home state schools of Nebraska and Creighton. Sallis’s recruitment appears to be wide open, but has had official visits to both Nebraska and Gonzaga.
