Five-star Class of 2020 center prospect Walker Kessler committed late Sunday night to Roy Williams and North Carolina, a decision that came on the heels of an official visit this weekend to UNC. Kessler, the No. 15 overall prospect in the 247Sports Composite rankings, committed to the Tar Heels over offers from Duke, which led crystal ball predictions with 64%, as well as Michigan and Auburn, among others.
The 247Sports Composite tabs him as the No. 3 player at his position in 2020.
Many considered Duke or Auburn to be leading in Kessler's recruitment going into the UNC visit, but a weekend on campus swayed him significantly, he says.
