    It came down to North Carolina and Wisconsin for J.P. Tokoto.

    In the end, tradition took priority over location.

    Tokoto, a 6-foot-6, 190-pound junior small forward from Menomonee Falls (Wisc.) High, chose Carolina over his state university during a Thursday night press conference.

    “I will be a Tar Heel,” said Tokoto, the No. 10 small forward in the Class of 2012, according to Rivals. “I’m attending North Carolina and I’ll play for Roy Williams.

      Good Stuff.
      Your site had Tokoto going to UNC.

      And rest assure that Shabazz will NOT go to UNC.
      Kensucky will make sure of this.
      In addition, Tokoto and Bazz will play the SAME position.

      Not sure any West player will even consider UNC.
      UNC treatment of West players is HORRIBLE.
      Simply lies.

    • AZ,

      The folks in the WEST are very upset with UNC again

      How can it FOOL the ALLENs. Lie to another West palyer.

      YES- use this West player and family inorder to get TOKOTO’s early verbal.

      The ALLENs bought it hock ,line and sinker.
      With this economy, WHY? have the Allens waste their money on an unofficial visit , this weekend.

      Very shaddy treatment of another WEST player by UNC.

    • AZ,

      I appreciate the great work you do with the blog. It’s refreshing to receive up-to-date an accurate information all across the college basketball and recruiting worlds.

      Anyway, was wondering if Gonzo will be a player to succeed Barry Rohrsen and return to his old stomping grounds?

      Also, in the class of 2012, do you have any of the latest news on Amile Jefferson and Daniel Ochefu?
