Five-star prospect Nassir Little committed to North Carolina on Wednesday. Little, a 6-foot-6 small forward, chose the Tar Heels over a final five that also included Georgia Tech, Duke, Arizona and Miami. "I just love coach [Roy] Williams," Little told ESPN. "He really cares about the players off the court, which is important. They're a basketball school, which is something I wanted to be a part of. Coach Roy really knows how to win. I love winning. I really do. And that's important to me." Arizona and Miami were considered the favorites for most of the past couple months, but both schools were mentioned in the FBI investigation last week. Little's AAU program director, Brad Augustine, was one of the men arrested. Shortly after the news broke, Little said he removed Arizona and Miami from consideration. "For me, I just didn't want to be mixed in a situation where any of the accusations seemed like it was true. Because it wasn't," Little said on Wednesday. "Every school I was considering was because I had a genuine interest in them. North Carolina had been the school I wanted, regardless. I just block it out. They can say they want. I just focus on myself, and do what my heart desires."
