Huge recruiting haul for UNC women

Posted May 6, 2012

Sylvia Hatchell is reloading.

In the wake of their first season without an NCAA Tournament bid in a decade, the Tar Heel women pulled off a recruiting coup Saturday. Four recruiting coups, to be exact.

In the span of one day, Carolina received verbal commitments from four of the top 18 recruits in the class of 2013.

Four...

In one day...

The top rated player in the group - #3-ranked Diamond DeShields of Norcross, Ga. - is the daughter of former major league baseball player Delino DeShields.

ESPN.com breaks down UNC's recruiting frenzy.

After a down season, playing time is obviously up for grabs in Chapel Hill - and the nation's top players are grabbing it.
