UNC basketball potentially receives good news about key freshman

Tar Heelsโ€™ move up in 2023 team recruiting rankings

As we continue to count down the days until the 2022-23 college basketball season, the North Carolina Tar Heels appear to have some good news for one key freshman.

Per Jon Rothstein of College Hoops Today, four-star center Jalen Washington is expected to be cleared for all basketball activities at the end of September.

Rothstein sources head coach Hubert Davis for his report and even has a quote on Washington that should excite UNC fans. Per Rothstein, Davis told him that Washington is the โ€œbest shooting big man coming out of high school that Iโ€™ve ever seen.โ€

Thatโ€™s some high praise from a head coach.

The Indiana native committed to North Carolina as part of the 2022 class and figures to be a key piece for the future. Washington suffered a torn ACL that has kept him out of basketball activities for a while now.

So if this report is true, Washington could play a bigger factor than many expected early in his career.
