Duke basketball 2014 target Theo Pinson chooses North Carolina

The No. 13 recruit in the class of 2014, according to ESPN, has chosen North Carolina.

The 6-foot-6 wing player was said to be debating between North Carolina and Indiana, but was also considering Duke, Louisville and Georgetown. It had been wrongly reported earlier this month that Pinson had dropped the Blue Devils as a potential school, but the story was later recanted.

Pinson joins a talented Tar Heel recruiting class that includes small forward Justin Jackson and combo guard Joel Berry.

According to Fox Sports' Evan Daniels, North Carolina is handily leading the 2014 recruiting race.

After securing a commitment from 2014 wing player Grayson Allen last month, Pinson was not a critical recruit for the Blue Devils. Duke's top 2014 recruits remain Jahlil Okafor and Tyus Jones.
