Johnson's Decision Day

North Carolina hopes to complete its 2014 hoops recruiting class on Friday at 3:30 p.m.

That's when Robert Johnson will announce his decision during a press conference at his high school.

The Richmond (Va.) Benedictine shooting guard is considering four finalists: Florida State, Indiana, UNC, and Virginia.

Johnson emerged as a Tar Heel target in July, and was offered by Roy Williams at the end of that month after multiple evaluation viewings. He took official visits to all four finalists, including UNC on the weekend of Sept. 7

North Carolina already has one of the nation's top 2014 recruiting classes, with commitments from point guard Joel Berry and wings Justin Jackson and Theo Pinson, but the Tar Heel staff sees Johnson as a perimeter shooter that can fill a need and complement the committed trio.

Inside Carolina will be in Richmond to cover the announcement, including live updates on the Premium Forum. To get subscribers ready for the announcement, Inside Carolina has consulted its sources and authored a comprehensive Announcement Primer. Recommended Stories
