Chapel Hill, NC (Future150) -- The Big Dance is finally here and while everyone would like to cut down the nets, there can only be one champion. That being said, there is always the chance that the next season could be better than the last. With that in mind, Future150 would like to introduce "The Next Step", a segment dedicated to breaking down each program's recruiting class as they bow out of the tournament; because there is always next season.

Roy Williams led North Carolina on an incredible tournament run basically blowing by everyone until they met Villanova in the title game. After falling just short in what could go down as the best title game ever, the Heels should be just fine next season. 

Even though UNC loses studs, Marcus Paige and Brice Johnson they have plenty of depth returning and a very solid recruiting class. The core of Roy Williams squad next season will be consisting of Joel BerryJustin JacksonIsaiah HicksKennedy MeeksTheo Pinson, and Nate Britt. Throw in rising Sophmores Kenny Williams, Luke Maye, and a top 10 recruiting class and it looks like the Tar Heels will have another super talented team. 

The Heels 2016 class consists of Seventh WoodsTony Bradley, and Brandon Robinson.

Woods and Robinson will help in the backcourt, with Woods being a super athletic combo guard that can score from all three levels and gets the ball to open teammates as well. Robinson isn't as highly rated as woods but the two guard has a college ready frame at 6'6 and around 190 pounds. He can stroke it from deep, and has some sick handles for a player his size. 

In the frontcourt, Tony Bradley's arrival will push Meeks and Hicks to work hard in practice as Bradley is certainly good enough to earn a starting spot. Bradley has great footwork in the post and can score at will, but what makes him so talented is his legit ability to knock down jumpers all the way out to the three point line. 

UNC has been knocked on for poor three point shooting the past few years but with Joel Berry, Justin Jackson, Seventh Woods, Brandon Robinson, and even Tony Bradley you can expect UNC to start becoming more of a perimeter threat again next season.
