Chapel Hill, NC (Future150) -- Coach Roy Williams and the rest of the coaching staff at North Carolina looks to be out of their short-lived recruiting slump. Considering they now have a top ten recruiting class and reeled in three top 75 prospects, one of which is arguably the most athletic guard in the 2016 class. Let's take a look at what these three guys should bring to the table once they arrive in Chapel Hill. 

Seventh Woods (#24 in top-150)CG, Hammond School (SC): Woods was going to be one of the most exciting freshman in the country to watch next year, no matter what school he ended up at. Now that he is going to UNC, with their run and gun style of play, things get even more juicier. After losing Marcus Paige to graduation, Woods will certainly help pick up the scoring that Paige leaves behind. He is a combo guard like Paige but they have very different skill sets. Woods is capable of knocking down shots from deep, but will earn most of his money slashing the lane, and banging home dunks. Look for Woods to have a very exciting freshman campaign as he will be thrown into the perfect system for his style of play. 

Tony Bradley (#67 in top-150)F/C, Bartow (FL): Roy Williams continues to add quality frontcourt talent to his roster every year it seems like. Next year will be no different with Tony Bradley entering the picture. Bradley is not your typical 6'10 tweener between power forward and center as he can run the floor and knock down jumpers with ease, even out to the three point line. He doesn't shy away from contact in the paint as he loves to post up and use a spin move to get a dunk or draw a foul. After playing and practicing with Kennedy Meeks and Isaiah Hicks for a season, Bradley could turn out to be a very special player for the Tarheels. 

Brandon Robinson (#72 in top-150)SG, Douglas County (GA): While Seventh Woods will make up for overall loss of scoring from Marcus Paige, Brandon Robinson will help make up for the loss of elite shooting. Robinson is a true SG with great size at 6'6 and loves to score. He can do it off the catch and off the dribble, and if he doesn't have a defender close by it's almost guaranteed to go through the net. Even though Joel Berry, Nate Britt, Theo Pinson and Kenny Williams will both still be on the roster, Coach Williams will have to find a way to give Robinson minutes. He is way too talented to be wasted on the bench for an entire season.
