The University of North Carolina hasn’t especially been known for its high level basketball recruiting, with only one top five recruit in the entire tenure of Coach Roy Williams. However, Coach Williams is known for his ability to build skill sets and abilities in players that were snubbed in their high school ratings. In this week’s edition of Looking Forward for Heels Hoops, we will take a look into one of three scholarship recruits coming into the roster this season, Seventh Woods.
Seventh Day’Vonte Woods is a 6’2″, 180 lbs point guard from Hammond High School out of Columbia, SC. Over his high school career he averaged around 18 points per game, won a state championship, and was named to the ESPN top 100 recruiting board. He was also the youngest player on the United States U-16 National Team that won gold at the 2013 FIBA U16 Championship. It’s safe to say that Seventh is an extremely talented basketball player, but he is also well known for his academic excellence and good nature, reported by The State.
Tar Heel fans will be looking forward to seeing Seventh hit the court this winter, especially with the hope of both an ACC and an NCAA championship still seemingly in their grasp. Woods will be coming into a point guard position that is currently held by junior Joel Berry II, but lineup positions are still unknown after the loss of two graduating starters. Analysts are expecting Woods to be an excellent impact for the Heels’ backcourt, because of his incredible athletic ability and knack for scoring. Hopefully he can step into his role as quickly as possible and give the Heels a boost on both sides of the ball.
Here’s a sneak peek into Seventh Woods and his insane skill set.
