Five-star 2019 center Armando Bacot commits to North Carolina


North Carolina coach Roy Williams secured another top recruit Thursday when five-star center Armando Bacot chose the Tar Heels.

The 6-10, 240-pound center is ranked 26th overall on 247 Sports . Bacot chose North Carolina over Duke, Georgia, Oklahoma State and VCU.

“Coach (Williams) would always visit me and he kept his word — he said he would be the coach that talked to (and watched) me the most, and in high school and AAU he did that, so that made a huge difference,” Bacot said of his decision to become a Tar Heel, via 247sports.com . “I know he wouldn’t just be doing that if he didn’t really want me or felt so strong about me. … My parents felt the most comfortable with UNC, too.”

Bacot joins four-star point guard Jeremiah Francis as the Tar Heels’ early commitments for the class of 2019. North Carolina had two five-star recruits and a four-star recruit in the 2018 class.
