The 2024 recruiting is a very important one for the Carolina Basketball program, and it’s off to a good start as Hubert Davis has landed commitments from five-star point guard, Elliot Cadeau, along with the commitments of four-star prospects, James Brown and Drake Powell. Well, today Carolina got one step closer to landing another big-time player, as five-star small forward Trentyn Flowers narrowed his recruitment down to five schools, with UNC making the cut, along with Creighton, Louisville, Arkansas, and Alabama. Flowers is ranked as the No. 21 prospect according to 247Sports.
This recruitment is extra important for Carolina, as Flowers is a local prospect, as he plays his high school basketball at Combine Academy, which was founded by former Tar Heel, Jeff McInnis. Here is what Flowers told 247Sports about his recruitment in regards to the UNC program: “It's in my backyard now. Coach Hubert and the staff are an amazing staff. Really just the history of basketball and the program they have built over there is fantastic. Having a school like that and potentially staying home is a reason that they're in there."
Flowers has yet to officially visit Chapel Hill, but that shouldn’t discourage you about his chances of playing in Carolina Blue, as the only schools that made his that he’s visited are Louisville and Creighton. He has one official visit left, and it will be hard to imagine him committing anywhere other than North Carolina if he chooses to spend his last visit at UNC. He plans to make his decision sometime this spring.
