Jackson leads North Carolina class

North Carolina head coach Roy Williams announced the signing of three student-athletes to letters of intent on Wednesday.

Headed to Chapel Hill next year are three ESPN 100 prospects, including the top-ranked small forward Justin Jackson (Tomball, Texas/Homeschool Christian), the No. 4 small forward Theo Pinson (Greensboro, N.C./Wesleyan Christian) and the third-ranked point guard Joel Berry (Apopka, Fla./Lake Highland Prep).

"We are ecstatic that these three young men and their families have decided to join our basketball family," Williams said. "Each of them are talented, come from wonderful families and share a common trait in that they have a tremendous desire for their teams to do well."

The Tar Heels are ranked No. 3 in the ESPN.com RecruitingNation Top 40.
