On the UNC basketball recruiting track, it looks like a 4-star forward from the Class of 2023 has caught the Tar Heels’ attention.
UNC’s basketball recruiting track is hot as the program’s coaching staff has been scouting for high school prospects who could be potential candidates for Chapel Hill.
This weekend, the Adidas 3SSB event was held in Spartanburg, South Carolina. At the event, there was a player from the Class of 2023 who seemed to really interest the Tar Heels coaching staff.
It looks like the North Carolina coaching staff paid a lot of attention to Dennis Parker this weekend at the Adidas 3SSB event in Spartanburg. The Richmond winger plays with Team Loaded (VA). He is ranked No. 56 in the Class of 2023 by Rivals. @HeelIllustrated

Dennis Parker hasn’t been a name much associated with the UNC basketball program, but it seems that has changed recently. According to Rivals’ David Sisk, the North Carolina coaching staff seemed to be paying a lot of attention to Parker during this weekend’s event.
Parker is a 6-foot-6 forward from Richmond, Va. (in case you forgot, the Tar Heels have had success with players from that area). Currently, high school junior John Marshall is ranked by 247 Sports Composite as the 87th overall player in his class while also being considered Virginia State’s third-best prospect.
Rivals rated Parker even higher, as he is currently listed as their No. 56 overall prospect in the class. Interestingly, Parker has dropped seven places since his last ranking was published.
It seems Parker caught the attention of the Tar Heels coaching staff. Although no official offers have arrived yet, it is possible that this will change in the near future.
Currently, North Carolina has New Jersey Simeon Wilcher as its only commitment from the Class of 2023. That could change next week, as GG Jackson is set to announce his commitment Wednesday night.
