Meeks to announce Friday

Kennedy Meeks

Four-star West Charlotte (N.C.) center Kennedy Meeks will announce between UNC and Georgetown during a Friday night ESPNU recruiting special.

Meeks (6-9, 275) had been non-committal about whether he would lock in during the early signing period after narrowing his field to those two programs more than two weeks ago.

But it was known that when he did pull the trigger, he intended to go through ESPN. So this has obviously been in the works.

Meeks – ranked as the nation’s No. 49 prospect by 247Sports – is one of three prospects who will declare on the hour-long National Signing Day Special, which will be shown from 7-8 p.m. on ESPNU. The other two prospects are Isaac Hamilton (San Diego State, UCLA, UNLV or UTEP) and Tyler Roberson (Kansas, Syracuse or Villanova).

UNC signed two top-50 prospects Wednesday in power forward Isaiah Hicks and point guard Nate Britt, both longtime pledges.

Meeks took his UNC official visit Oct. 26.
