UNC basketball signee Simeon Wilcher reached a terrific milestone this weekend in his high school career.
The future Tar Heel eclipsed the 1,000-point mark in his high school career with Roselle Catholic (NJ) in their win over Timber Creek. Wilcher had 15 points in the game, with a three pointer being the shot that put him over the 1,000-point mark.
On the season, Wilcher is averaging 13.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game.
Last year he led Roselle Catholic to a New Jersey State Championship as a junior while averaging 16.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game.
The 6-foot-4 combo guard is ranked No. 29 in the 247Sports composite rankings and is the No. 7 combo guard in the class.
Wilcher is part of a two-man 2023 class for Hubert Davis and the UNC Tar Heels. He is joined by four-star forward Zayden High.
Recently, Wilcher broke down what the selling point was for his UNC commitment and why being a Tar Heel was inevitable.
“You can’t turn down playing on a big stage like this. Especially at North Carolina where it’s a school for guards like myself. There’s a whole bunch of successful guards that play there now and have played there in the past. Guys that were able to get to where I want to go. Then with coach Hubert playing in the league and him having the knowledge that I want him to pass down to me. So whenever it’s my turn to take that next step, I’ll be ready for it.”
