Roy Williams Announces Two Signees

Hairston, McAdoo

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – P.J. Hairston, a 6-4 wing from Greensboro, N.C., and James McAdoo, a 6-8 forward from Norfolk, Va., signed National Letters of Intent to attend the University of North Carolina and play men's basketball.

Hairston played for Coach David Price at Dudley High School in Greensboro for three years. He is currently attending Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Va., where he will play for Coach Kevin Keatts. He averaged 25.4 points and 8.1 rebounds at Dudley last year.

McAdoo attends Norfolk Christian and plays for Coach Michael Allen. He averaged 22.5 points and 9.9 rebounds last year and led Norfolk Christian to a state championship. He was the Gatorade Player of the Year in Virginia and led the United States U-17 team to a gold medal in the 2010 FIBA U-17 World Championships in Germany.

"We are ecstatic signing P.J. and James as they are outstanding young men who come from great families as well as being very talented basketball players," says UNC head coach Roy Williams. "P.J. made a very difficult decision to leave Dudley High School to push himself to another level and become the best player he can be. He can really shoot the basketball, but what has impressed me even more is how he has improved defensively and as a rebounder.

"James is an outstanding player, but even better as an individual," says Williams. "He comes from a talented basketball family. His parents have helped him both as a player and in helping him become a great kid. He has tremendous ability. Both P.J. and James will make a tremendous impact on our program."
