  • Nassir Little, the 6-foot-7 small forward from Orlando Christian Prep who committed to North Carolina last Wednesday and then competed this past weekend at a USA Basketball minicamp, remains unconcerned about potential NCAA sanctions against his future school.

    Little said Tar Heels head coach Roy Williams told him the team — which won the NCAA championship in 2017 — won’t receive significant punishment relating to an academic scandal covering the period 2002-11.

    “It’s not necessarily an athletic thing,” Little said Williams told him, according to Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports. “It wasn’t just the basketball team involved in it. They’re not going to be penalized as people suggest.”

    On Thursday, North Carolina announced that the NCAA’s final report would not be released on Friday, as initially reported, due to “scheduling circumstances.

    Filip Petrusev, the 6-foot-11, 215-pound Serbian forward from Montverde (FL) Academy, is planning two more official visits.

    Petrusev said he will “most likely” visit Gonzaga and Utah this coming weekend.

    He has already taken official visits to Charlotte and Tennessee, and would then have one remaining. He’s also considering Arizona, Virginia and Maryland.


    Emmitt Williams, the 6-foot-8 power forward from Oak Ridge (FL), will visit LSU (Oct.12) and Florida the next two weekends, according to ESPN’s Jeff Borzello.


    Williams took a visit Oregon last weekend and wants to see Duke in the future. Williams is down to Oregon, LSU, Florida, Duke, Miami, Kansas and USC.

    “It was great,” Williams told Scout of the Oregon visit. “It was great to see the Nike facilities, the school, and Phil Knight. It was just an awesome experience.”
