Williams on Friday landed 6-9 twins David and Travis Wear, 190-pound juniors at Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei. Rivals.com has Travis ranked No. 19 and David ranked No. 20 in the Class of 2009.
Two days earlier, the Tar Heels received a commitment from 6-10 John Henson of Round Rock, Texas, another top-ranked junior.
Williams now has commitments from the three juniors and from 6-3 sophomore Kendall Marshall of Arlington (Va.) Bishop O'Connell.
Williams is involved with two talented New Jersey junior guards in St. Patrick's Dexter Strickland and St. Anthony's Dominic Cheek, as well as Leslie McDonald, a 6-4 shooting guard out of Memphis. Cheek's St. Anthony team is No. 1 in the ZAGSBLOG New Jersey Top 10 and No. 2 in the National Prep Poll, while Strickland's Celtics are No. 3 in ZAGSBLOG and No. 5 in the national poll.
"I feel real good about the school," Strickland told ZAGSBLOG last month. "I like the campus, the players, their history and everything. It's a good fit for me. I'm not going to make a commitment yet. I'll probably wait until the middle of my season.
"North Carolina is looking real good for me."
As for the 6-5 Cheek, he recently told ZAGSBLOG he's in no rush and has a lot of suitors, including North Carolina, Villanova, Wake Forest, Pitt, Texas, Florida, Marquette, Seton Hall and Rutgers.
Early speculation had Cheek leaning toward North Carolina, and recent reports have mentioned his affinity for Villanova.
Cheek did say he had attended "most" of Villanova's home games this season, but "not every one." He had hoped to see the North Carolina-Rutgers game at the RAC Dec. 16, but was busy playing with his high school team at the Tip-Off Classic at Seton Hall.
He said he plans to wait until next fall to take his five official visits.
"I want to try to take all my official visits," he said.
Stay tuned for more on Strickland and Cheek in the next week or so. We hope to catch up with Dexter at the Nike Super Six Jan. 13 at Madison Square Garden.
