Release: 11/16/2012
LONG BEACH, CALIF. – Nate Britt, a guard from Upper Marlboro, Md., and Isaiah Hicks, a forward from Oxford, N.C., have signed National Letters of Intent to attend the University of North Carolina and play men’s basketball, head coach Roy Williams announced today.
Britt attends Oak Hill Academy in Mouth of Wilson, Va., where he plays for coach Steve Smith. He attended Gonzaga College High School in Washington, D.C., for three years where he played for coach Steve Turner.
“Nate is a tremendous student-athlete in every sense of the word,” says Williams. “His family emphasized both aspects and he is a true example for everyone. He is a leader on the court, someone who enjoys getting the ball to his teammates. However, he also can score himself. Nate’s a wonderful kid and he’s going to do a lot of wonderful things in our program.”
Hicks attends JF Webb High School in Oxford, where he plays for coach Leo Brunelli.
“Isaiah is a wonderful young man who can do things both inside and outside that will be effective at our level,” says Williams. “He can block shots and he can also get out on the floor and be a tremendous player. The people in Oxford were ecstatic when he came back to Webb last year and the people at UNC will be ecstatic with him as well.”
